Robust and smooth, this full-flavored lager is exceptionably drinkable and pitch black in color.

Delicious, refreshing, and a nice kick in the ass to boot. Lived this beer from the first taste camping in Zion NP. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, almost opaque black color with light tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee and faint fruitiness. Taste is subdued to aroma; added light smoke and earthiness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with light roast finish. A pretty tasty light black lager.

Milkiness, sour, and dryness did not work out for me. It's different though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (3116) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2015
12 oz can marked with a BB date of May 2015. Huge, foamy tan head over a nearly opaque, dark brown body. Rich, malty and complex. This drinks like an ale. Creamy smooth mouthfeel mimics a nitro tap origin. Lasting aftertaste of dark malts and earthy/herbal hops. O: closer to a stout than any black lager I’ve had, this also may be the best.

Very good. Appearance is a thick light tan, long lasting head with lots of lace and an almost opaque, but clear black brown color. Aroma is roast up front then dark leather, meat, coffee, malt. cocoa. Flavor’s like nose, dryish at first, then with the other qualities including tang, there’s a bit of sweet in the finish. Body is good, tho perhaps a bit thin. Very quaff-able. I’d like to have another right away.

3/19/15 (Can) - Dark black pour, roasted malt and coffee scents were very strong and desirable. Taste was even better, excellent roasted malt and chocolate. Very smooth to drink, minimal carbonation, light in both texture and ABV. Nice paring with desert. Overall very good offering!

Not much of an aroma - cardboard malts and something like old split pea and ham soup. A little weird. Flavor is where it shines more - lots of tasty malt roast, something vaguely bacon-ish, and more roast hitting in the finish. Salty. Some bread notes. I’ve stated my love before of a well-done schwarzbier, and while this isn’t among the tops of the style, IMO, it’s got the main elements that make it drinkable, flavorful, and yet light enough to quaff.

tightslice (460) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is some roasted malts. Taste is mild dark malts with some dry ashiness. A sleepy soda of a beer.

Aroma roasted malts and small hint of chocolate. Taste is grainy. Roasted malts, chocolate, milk, caramel and some spice. Thin but good flavor. Smooth and light. Some cardboard taste at end. Overall decent

12 oz can purchased as part of a mix a six at K-7 Liquors in Shawnee, Kansas. Best Before 07/09/15 printed on the bottom of the can. The pour is black brown with a bit of golden on the pour with a well formed ½ inch light tan head. The aroma is softly sweet bread like malt, along with a whisper of roast. Fresh nose. The taste is dry roast cracker malt, soft sweet caramel bread, then moves to a dry mineral grassy finish. Nice transition of flavors. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation and the clean dry finish. Easy drinking, tasty beer.
