A distinctive blend of roasted dark and chocolate malts with a crisp lager taste. This unique style of beer was introduced for all those who love their beer a little darker and a little bolder. Rich in colour & flavour, our Brewmaster’s Black Lager finishes crisp and clean.

Slight hints of chocolate and malt that peak in the aftertaste. Moderately carbonated. Tastes exactly what it says it tastes like in the deScription, a little bit more flavour would make it appeal to me a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent head and jet black body.soft barley aroma. Roasted barley flavour with coffee hints. Weaker on the mouth. Adequate but not exciting.

Dark cola colouring. Thin head. Crisp flavour balanced with molasses. Heavily carbonated, but thin and lacks texture.

On tap. Light roast and faint caramel aroma. Cereal and hay flavours, faint mixed fruit finish. Not great but better than the pale ale.

Pretty tasty lager. Reminds me of a stout just a little lighter in body. Taster is very stoutish with taste of roasted barley some slight coffee notes. Decent and enjoyable

Small bottle, not poured into glass. Distinctive roasted malt flavour with a bit of smoke. Dark chocolate. Malty and slightly bitter. One of the better OK beers I've had.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours a very dark brown with some light shining through, a large initial beige head that quickly becomes thin and leaves small traces of lace up the glass. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and light coffee(almost a touch sour but just a bit off in general). Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, sour tannin extracted coffee and comes through fairly watery. I remember when I loved this beer in my first days of "Craft Beer".

MunBro (943) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aroma isn’t indicative of a dark lager at all. The taste isn’t really either. Minor hints of the things found in a more full profile - chocolates and roasted malts in very thin profile. Not great.
