This is a lovely surprise. I was expecting, based on the label of "black lager" it would be thin and weak like most beers advertised as "black xyz:" thick flavorful wonderful.

Black with a foamy dark brown head and no lacing. Aroma of smoked malts, chocolate, yeasts, floral hops and roasted barley. Likewise with the flavor but way more roasty forward. Mild carbonation and a light body; Easy to drink. Pretty good!

c0fein (179) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2014
660ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.

Black outlook with beautiful brown foam. I could guess from outlook that this is Imperial Stout. Little bit burned aroma. Good one, but too roasted periodically.

Pours as dark as night but smooth aroma and nice balanced malty flavor. Taste stays for awhile on your palate and keeps the enjoyment going. Great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a pitch black body with a small light beige head. Nose is roasted bread, coffee, dark chocolate and hints of cereals. Taste is coffee, roasted bread, dark chocolate and hints of ashes. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not too bad for a schwarzbier, which is among my least favorite beer styles.

Garrold (1120) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Just about black. Brown head that sets off big, then quickly reduces to a film. Fruity, dark chocolate. Licorice. A light, brown sauciness. Missus. Plenty of roast malt. Hint of coffee, too. Taste is firstly, smoky BBQ sweet, then roast malt dryness. Very smooth mouthfeel. Light bitter, medium dry finish. Lovely.
