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 itís amazingly light, crispy, and sessionable. KCCO Black is a delicious misfit.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear amber body that supports a semi weak tan head of mostly medium size bubbles. The aroma offers up roasted malts and a light mix of toffee and nuttiness with thin ribbons of burnt malts around the edges. The taste has a nice dark roasted malt kick that includes dark roasted coffee and a mild burnt malt note. Beneath the moderate roastiness are sweet malts and a bit of sweet caramel and chocolate malts. Decent for the style.

Nice lager, but not a beer you want to make your drink of the evening. It has the taste of a good lager, but the aftertaste is a bit heavy. Good with food but not good for drinking on all night. Not a bad beer...

This is a great beer to have a couple of but not something to make your drink for the night. After 4 I ended up with a headache but this is my go to beer for a hearty dinner.

loubar (89) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 21, 2014
12 oz bottle from BevMo. Opaque, dark caramel color with beige head. Aroma is burnt grains and mild chocolate. Taste is malty, roasted grains, earthy with hints of coffee. No bitterness. Palate is light-bodied, slightly thin with a dry finish. Tasty, clean and refreshing. Easy drinking.

ectuohy27 (628) - ESTONIA - DEC 19, 2014
Light indeed, but sessionable only if one considers a black lager to need the IBU dose of an IPA. (Standard American microbrew, adulterating a European style with unnecessary hoppiness). But much worthwhile in aroma, relatively smooth palate and rich toasted notes as well, if watered/then hopped over

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegmans. Has a slightlysmokey aroma but definitely alot missing. The flavor roasted but very watered down.

SODAK14 (294) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, beer with a small head. Iíd call this a beer that is a good intro dark brews. Not too complex...actually kinda up my alley. Anyway, easy to drink and something you could serve to any of your friends.

EyeAmBaldman (317) - Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours dark mahogany with a thin off white head. Aroma is grainy, like the smell of an empty grain bin. Taste is bad. Itís got barley, malt, and grains in the mouth. Itís not a pleasant taste, but it is beer...thatís got to count for something right? I havenít liked much black lager and this is another one.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint with opaque, dark caramel color with lots of beige head. Aroma is burnt grains and slight chocolate sweetness. Taste is malty, roasted grains, cedar wood note. Palate is light-bodied, clean, slightly thin, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours translucent cola brown with a frothy gray-tan head. Aroma has a strong note of raw barley with hay and woody hop side-tones. Malty flavor has a burnt undertone and hints of hay, woody hops, and coffee. Texture lacks fizz and firmness, but goes down well. Resign and get hooked.

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pretty dark from the bottle. Has a gentile aroma. First taste is fairly mild, just the way I like my dark beers. Yes, more like a dark lager fer sure. Easy fun and enjoyable. I like this, its mild and well behaved. Never in yer face. I wouldnít hesitate to buy and drink a sixer of this. Should have purchased a few more of these. Thank you Resignation for such a like able beer. Good example of a what a friendly dark beer should be.
