The lager is named after the legendary lava rock formation on Ka’anapali Beach which Hawaiians believe is one of three uhane lele, a place where souls of the dead leap from earth into their ancestral spirit land and where only a person with great spiritual strength can enter that world and return.

The Black Rock Lager embodies its name by beginning with crisp yet shallow bitterness and slightly smooth and roasted malt flavors before rising to a heavenly floral and spicy finish. An American Dark Lager, the Black Rock Lager contains 5.5% alcohol and 25 IBUs. Guests can enjoy this deceptively dark yet rewardingly refreshing craft beer while watching history come to life as the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa reenacts the legendary Cliff Dive Ceremony every evening at sunset.

Dark in color, as expected. Taste more like a coffee porter than a lager. Maybe not as heavy as a porter.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours really dark brown with orange glints and a light tan head. Aroma of light fruits and dark malts. Med body, or so. Flavor: tastes like a schwarzbier. It’s lightly sweetly malty, has a chocolate hint, notes of light fruit, and light, light noble hop. Finishes a bit earthy. I am pleasantly surprised.

Very enjoyable brew. Pours a dark muddy brown with a tan head atop. The aroma is malty with light roasted toffee and molasses malts, light hops are almost not present. A creamy malt base with a dry finish. Nice bready and molasses malt flavours that gives a good body to the brew. Overall, a good sessionable dark brew.

TimE (4340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 28, 2015
Dark brown color. Off white head. Some nice dark fruit notes in the nose. Dry, decent dark fruitiness, lacks a bit of roastiness and bitterness is low. Simple, but pretty enjoyable.

Draft - Date and some grain sweetness. Deep maroon with a small white head. Date, raisin and some nice pale malts. Thin, light and dark fruit, just what I like.

mcberko (10551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Nose is very dry, with chalk and dirty earthy notes. Flavour is dirty and earthy, with some crusty bread notes dominating. Pretty bleh - seems burnt and too dirty. Not too pleasant.

Slight bitterness in the middle. Body is thin to medium as it should be. Finishes light and dry. Nice Schwarzbier done island style.
