COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Resignation Recipe Brewed In Collaboration with Redhook. A toast lager with notes of chocolate and coffee. Unlike a heavy porter or a stout it’s amazingly light, crispy, and sessionable. KCCO Black is a delicious misfit.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had over facebook chat. It pours very dark and has red highlights. A tan head clings to the glass. Some roast and nuts in the aroma and they are tasted. Chocolate and fruit are light but nice. Some earth and the finish is raspberry chocolate syrup. This is better than expected and is pretty good.

with Strykzone on Fxcebook Chat. Pours a dark red brown with a small light tan head. Nose of chocolate and nuts. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. . Flavor is somewhat sweet chocolate and finishes earthy. Maybe not to style but very tasty and easy drinking.

10/18/14. 12oz bottle from Warehouse. Dark brown pour, almost black, under a short-lived khaki head with very mild lacing. The aroma shows roast, very mild YMCA free coffee, nutty, a touch of acidity. Light acidity in the flavor as well, coffee, nuttiness, mild chocolate, a hint at fruitiness. Not bad.

12 oz. bottle from Steve. Thanks! Bottle is dated June 21 14. Pours a clear amber-brown with a small beige head. Notes of toast, chocolate, roast, tobacco, earth, and a hint of dark fruit. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty, roasty, semi-sweet mouthfeel. Good black lager.

Not very complex. Slight hops, slight caramel smell. Not really sure what else to say, tastes a little grassy.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Date on bottle reads June 24 14. Mostly clear very dark red / brown color. Good thin tan head. Leaves nice thicker lace. Roast malt, some light dark fruit, some mild chocolate, hints of coffee. Medium body. Lind of soft lighter carbonation, light slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, lighter bitterness. Not a bad schwarzbier. Nice to enjoy with my sandwich.

Aroma bread and roasted malts. Smoke earthiness bit of chocolate and dark roast malts in taste. Not bad for a dark beer but nothing special. Pretty close to an amber bock. Slightly thin mouhfeel
