4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beer was from a bottle. Poors black with a nice tan head. Aroma is predominately of roasted malt. Flavor is excellent. Reminiscent of a stout except very clean. Slight bitterness comes through from what appears to be roasted malt only, but Hops are definately there. Slight sweetness helps balance the whole package. Palate is great, with a smooth lager finish. Makes you want to have another sip after each drink. Overall this beer is excellent. I look forward to having it again

Pours black with brown head. Decent lacing. Smells of toasted malts, caramel, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes are on par with smells. Extremely carbonated with a dry finish.

Bottle at Stone Bistro. It was night and we were outdoors so i couldn’t tell if it was black or just really dark brown. Nice roasty aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel with flavors of roasted malts, wood, and burnt chocolate. This beer is pretty dynamic in that it maintains the flavor of a stout with the smoothness and mouthfeel of a lager. Pretty cool drink.

This beer is really really good... My Bottle has a label that says Midnight Sessions Lager???? Very roasty and smoked nose. Pours a very dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Low carbonation and a light body with a very smooth finish. Flavor is mildly sweet with plenty of roasty and smoky malts... ... This is truly Fantastic and Everyone should enjoy one soon.

This lager pours a very dark almost black color. The nose is of smoked cereal and roasted coffee. Taste is smokey dry malt flavor with a nice drinkability. One of the better lagers i’ve had.

The head stays for a long while compared to other brews and is a great characteristic. It’s got a really complex flavor of malt, coffee, nuts, and finishes with a dark chocolate aftertaste. It’s simply amazing. The mild carbonation allows that flavors to really shine and allows your palate to notice all the subtle hints that the brew has.
