"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."

Blairgus (4123) - California, USA - JUL 25, 2015
25 July 2015, bottle. black. nose is meaty, Worcestershire sauce, very odd aroma. med body and moderately fizzy. very interesting beer. meaty, Worcestershire sauce, sweet alcohol. i really can’t describe this and i really have never had anything like this. such an odd flavor and aroma. if i hadn’t bought this at the brewery within the last two weeks i would think something was the matter with it. It is also labeled as a black coffee lager. I don’t taste or smell any coffee and it doesn’t taste or feel like a lager. very odd and unusual.
