Pours black with a tan head. Smells of smoke/roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Taste upfront is roasted malt, a little bitter hop followed by sweet fruit and a chocolate finish.

Pours dark chocolate color. Decent head. Taste of caramel and chocolate, very nice malt. Did not taste many black lagers before so this one is a nice surprise.

This was a good beer it was smooth and allowed me to enjoy the beer without all the hops that tend to overpower. I like to drink multiples of this beer.

I think my first black lager I ever had. Kinda blew my mind a little bit. Very delicious beverage, light with just the right amount of dark malts to make it interesting.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a shaker pint. Pours an attractive off-white one-finger head with moderate retention and lacing. Dark-brown to black and nearly opaque. Nose is milk chocolate and malt. Medium bodied and creamy. Really well done body. Taste is a little roasty, some chocolate, a light candy sweetness. Very little bitterness. A hint of dryness. Well balanced. A very drinkable beer.

Dragged this back with me from Las Vegas. 12oz bottle, enjoy by 07jun15. Pours coffee black with a beige head that falls quickly. Aroma is dark dried fruits, caramel and chocolate. Flavor follows... raisin, date, caramel and chocolate. Mild carbonation and a hint of mineral in the finish makes this just shy of cloying.
