COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Combining jet black color with incredibly smooth texture and decadent coffee flavor, BREWTALITY breaks the expectations of both rich espresso and dark beer to create a whole ’nuther beast. While brutal in alcoholic strength, this biggie beautifully showcases its roasted malt and coffee flavors without bringing on bitterness and bite. This is the first of two lagers in the series."
Re-released as part of "Alaska’s Most Wanted" Series

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2014
2013 bomber from Half Time, drunk 4/6/14
Mostly clear, ebony-mahogany body with garnet tints on the edges. Plentiful beige head is moderately well-retained.
Tons of coffee in the nose, followed by light chocolate fudge and just tons of alcohol. Glue, plastics, raw grainy booze. No gettin around it...Even for the alcohol, the beer aspects are pretty thin. No malt depth/complexity, just fudgey chocolate malts with just the bare minimum vinousness, mostly coming from the coffee....
Flavor is punishingly sweet, syrupy, full of coffee and has absolutely no finesse to it. And you’ve got the raw booze on the end, adding tons of sharpness to the already coffee-fatigued palate. Can’t find much beer here. Just syrupy chocolate and caramel sugars, raw booze and coffee. Really surprising that this is from Midnight Sun. One of the worst beers I’ve had in a while. Pretty much has all of the least desirable characteristics I want in a beer.

Maverick34 (2160) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2014
Jet black pour, small tan head from bomber. Espresso coffee smell. Some malty bocky dark fruits and a big coffee flavor. very mild hops, some light burning due to ABV. Interesting brew. Worth trying though I don’t know what this goes with.

sitzds (280) - - APR 1, 2014
22oz bottle poured into tulip. Part of duct tape surprise bottle share at Beachwood. Very dark, nearly opaque brown body with a half-finger tan head that leaves patchy lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Taste is slightly sweet initially with molasses and dark fruit flavors then an espresso roast bitterness follows. Medium-full body, sticky and thick texture, soft carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Black with tan head. Ash, a little sourdough bread with grain in the nose, some coffee, bitter, roasty and dying bonfire taste. Very heavy, roasty finish.

tgncc (2740) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2014
The aroma is coffee, molasses. The appearance is deep black, no head. The flavor is coffee, fruit, brown sugar. The finish is sweet, light pine. Medium, slightly thick in body. Nice.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Black with a frothy light brown head. Strong coffee beans aroma with some roastiness, liqueur notes and a bit of alcohol. Good roasty flavor with lots of coffee, dark chocolate, some liqueur character and a light alcoholic touch. Finishes drier abd a bit burnt. A nice thick silky mouthfeel. Very nice, but NOT A SCHWARZBIER.

Cory (295) - , California, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Smoke, wood and dried cherries, a little flat, smooth and creamy, long Smokey sweet finish, lots if oils coating my mouth. Man, now this is a great beer. If it had a little more carbonation it would have got an even higher rating.

This a very tasty espresso black lager. Has the look of a stout and the palate of one too. The flavors are more full bodied like a lager. Not too malty and a subtle bitterness that I enjoyed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black. Medium, creamy light brown head. Aroma is sweet roasty, dark malty; full of coffee, espresso, chocolate, licorice. Flavor also finds plenty of coffee/espresso, cocoa, alcohol, licorice. Lighter Medium body. Pleasant, easy alcohol warmth in the finish accompanying the clean roastiness. Theres some oakiness in there. I like how the roast develops.
