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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approximately 3-4 oz sampler at the Brewpub in Lahaina, Maui. The pour is a mostly clear black brown with a small light tan head. The aroma is roasted, slight char malt, along with a touch of malt sweetness. The taste is lightly sweet malt, followed close behind with the big char roast. Clean, crisp, nice subtle flavor. The palate is light bodied, featuring crisp carbonation and a dry mineral finish. Nice one.
