Inspired by the black session lagers of the Czech Republic, Notch Black Lager is malty, toasty, and infinitely drinkable. Černe Pivo is Czech for “Black Beer”, and is a style wholly indigenous to the Czech Republic, yet with little awareness in the US.

Better than most dunkels but I feel like that means it isn’t a dunkel. Light roast and some lightly soured malt, dunkel styke. Pours black with decent head. Average carbonation. Light bitter finish with some hint of sourness. Tap at Lord hobo.

Poured from a 12oz can into a dimple mug. Born on "10/16/2015" Aroma - Cocoa, roasted malt, dark bread. Not particularly potent. Appearance - Three finger creamy mocha head. Un-pierceable black color. Taste - Semi-sweet cocoa flavors mesh with the roasted, bitter roasted malts. Sweet flavors are reminiscent of iced coffee with milk. Lingering roasted and cocoa flavors. Palate - Light bodied but plenty creamy. Semi-dry. Overall - Fell in love with tmavy in Prague, with its pilsner-like body but porter-like richness. Happy to see Notch pay omage to the style and do an admirable job at it.

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Toasty coffee malt and singed hops aroma. Odd lactic undertone, wait till it warms if that’s not really apparent. Dark cola brown. The texture is kind of cola like too - nice and crisp and sometimes gritty, yet mellow as a whole. Bittersweet coffee taste. This one is about what the brewer describes, and can be abbreviated to something like dunkel with schwartz tendencies.
