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

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle poured a deep black with a small mocha head and excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted coffee beans flows from the bottle upon opening and is followed by hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and slight booziness. Taste is chocolate malt, coffee, cocoa, nuttiness, and dark fruit. Smooth finish with palatable espresso bitterness and chocolate flavors lingering. Great for winter, and all other seasons!

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roastiness, light espresso and light dried fruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, espresso, licorice and dried fruit with a smooth lingering roasty espresso finish.

peteinSD (1280) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2012
’12 bottle I think. Black pour with a quickly fading slick of tan foam and steady carbonation. Aroma is dark roasted coffee, rich fudge-like chocolate, expresso, and clean, dry bitter chocolate. Taste is dominated by roasted coffee and expresso with chocolate malt and a clean finish that presents with some sweeter malt characteristics including light raisin. Clean and semi-soft mouthfeel. Intense, imperialized Schwarzbier. Great beer.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
From memory: Overt aromas of expresso and dark chocolate. Rich, thick and a touch sweet. Long finish of expresso. Simple, yet very delicious. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a tan smear that quickly deleted. Aroma for me is primarily something like treacle and hop. The coffee just oozes around the edges. Aspects of sweet dark fruit are stronger. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and espresso, with treacle and a good dose of dark fruit. Espresso vs coffee: it’s a strong, gritty coffee, not unlike the rough stuff I make in the morning. Which comes out of an espresso machine. This is certainly not dry. It still seems to have a lot of treacle. But it is one incredible drink. Power to the flavor. And this is a schwarzbier? Whither goest das reinheitsgebot? :)

timfoolery (1123) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2012
4oz taster at DBS. Lucked out to make it over here to taste Brewtality, what a gem. Best black lager I’ve had, and the expresso beans make the beer. Just an excellent beer, can’t get enough.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle 2012 release: Poured a deep black oil with thin brown head that dissipated rather fast. Aroma is strong coffee, fruit, and sweet roasted malts. Taste is a complicated mix of roasted malt, rich coffee, and yet had a dark fruit character as well.

Freakout (16) - Alaska, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle. Original Release. Well...this beer has aged well. Nice subdued java aroma with a smooth roasted barley espresso taste. Well rounded palate and silky mouth feel after it warms a bit. Gotten better with age IMHO. Thanks Jabbles.

From the tap, this beer is light in head, almost has legs walking along the glass. Smells of coffee and maybe a little brown sugar in there. the flavor of the coffee is amazing, with a kick of sugar and maltiness in it, just so you know you have a real beer. It’s like if you threw malt in your 4 shot espresso and a packet of sugar in the Raw. Brilliant!
