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

Gription79 (2263) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, thanks to Mike. Spicy coffee, chocolate, caramel, milk chocolate in the flavor. Very nice. A well balanced beer.

jtclockwork (8445) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of espresso, coffee, baker’s chocolate, tootsie roll, black licorice and lightly smoked malts. Medium body.

blklab2007 (1967) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from Alaska’s most wanted series. Pour has a very dark brown color and a thin coating of off white head that fell to a ring on the glass. Aroma has bitter coffee, dark baking chocolate, more malt as it warms, and weaver hits it dead on with the tootsie rolls. Fantastic descriptor! Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor brings in some malt, espresso beans, light bitterness, chocolate, and my new favorite tootsie rolls! Much better as the bottle warmed up.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 26, 2013
22oz bottle, purchased at City Beer (from the non-Crew Brews release; just the normal current bottling). Pours a deep, chocolate-brown color; modest, fine-bubbled dark-tan head that readily departs. Dense Tootsie-Roll notes, caramel, and well-roasted coffee in the aroma; some pronounced, vinous alcohol as well, slightly warming. ’Schwarzbier’ is a stretch here. Medium-full body; light CO2; hefty, slightly viscous mouthfeel. A big, on-point black lager with well-integrated coffee additions (the coffee plays a role, but doesn’t steal the show) along with plenty of caramel, fruity alcohol, and some darker smoky malts as a tertiary note; a bit of oxidation. Like an imperial schwarzbier, which I’m not sure was necessary. Medium-length finish: dried caramel, dark and milk chocolate, toasty malts, coffee.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
22oz bottle. Poured a black color with an off white head. Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, creme, and roasty. I would classify the coffee on the medium side and not overly in your face (which I actually like in my coffee beers).

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Nearly black color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of burnt toast, light cocoa, and roasted malts. Taste of the same, a dry, roasty finish.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown beer with a light brown head. Coffee and espresso aroma with chocolate. Caramel and coffee flavor with light dark fruits and chocolate. Medium-plus bodied. caramel and coffee linger with light chocolate and some fruitiness.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours unclear dark coffee with a creamy beige head. The aroma brings sweet chocolate coffee and espresso and vanilla, so nice in the nose. The flavor brings chocolate, light bitter malts, and light vanilla on a lighter creamy body, so nice on the palate.

Rando7 (736) - Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle pours black with brief small tan head. Aroma mainly roast and licorice. Taste malts, roast, dark fruits, chocolate and licorice. I am not getting a lot of coffee here but not sure what year this is. Finish mild roast. Moderate palate. Alcohol minimally apparent.

22oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with some beige head. Nose of brown bread, licorice, malty, brown sugar, cold pressed coffee. Flavor is sweet, a little stale malt, caramel, light coffee, brown bread. Medium bodied, sweet finish.
