"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."

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.

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 (8664) - Tel Aviv, - 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.

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.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head that fades instantly. Aroma is sweet roasted malt. The taste adds espresso, an alcohol warm punch, and spice that you feel in your throat and nose for a split second. The finish is a little sweet with strong espresso notes. Smooth lager with a nice kick to it. The mouthfeel is semi-rich with a velvet-like coating, some chocolate. Really good.

Sample shared by a friend. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium thin khaki head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Medium-bodied with flavors of dark chocolate, espresso and charred malt. The finish is roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

On tap at Beermongers. A dark black but you can tell crystal clear like any good lager. Smells like spiced coffee caramel. This thing has a great body for an imperial lager, its sticky and weighty enough to hold the coffee but so crisp and smooth, that is until all the spice and subtleness of the schwarzbier base is washed a way by brutal, bitter, bright espresso. They sure mean what they say with the name. I try to drink this when I can, I love coffee beer and it’s probably the most unique use of coffee in a beer I’ve seen. Midnight Sun hardly ever gets enough press for the cool stuff they do. But props to them.
