Very dark brown brew with a 2 finger head of off white foam sitting atop. Bitter roasted malt in the smell with string hints of smoke. The bitter could be some hop character as well, I suppose. Roasted malt, bitter hops, definite flavours of smoke that compliment. There’s some real harmony going on with this black lager. It has a creamy mouthfeel. Very good brew!

Roasty chocolatey bready malt Pours black with red hues and big fluffy lasting light brown head Roasty malts, chocolate, light coffee. Earthy hops Medium light bodied, with medium high CO2, roasty finish. Great black lager. Just the right amount of roasty malts. A tad bitter, but still well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle pours deep darkness with mahogany edges and lasting mocha head. The aroma offers up a good load of dark roasted malts as well as a bit of burnt malts and highly toasted wheat bread. The taste is full of dark roasted malts, some mild spicy rye notes and then picking up a modest level of dry malt astringency. Very nice full flavored brew.

Requisite darkness applies along with an average size head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate and chicory. Flavor is true to the spirit of a schwarzbier, with modest sweetness, some smoke, a strong roasted malt backbone and hops that are more spicy than citrusy. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish.

Pour is black with some dark ruby highlights around the edges - thin ring of tan foam - complex nose of hazelnut, cream, espresso, lightly charred maltiness, a hint of smoke - creamy, medium to light body - approach is dry, with moderate mineral character and a light bitterness - some roast settles into the palate after that, along with light touches of bittersweet chocolate - lightly bitter hops arrive late, along with some black malt bitterness - finish is of cocoa, espresso, light smoke, a touch of dry mineral - pretty awesome beer - if you can’t make a session beer like this, then quit the game, motherfucker - quit the game.

First outing for me and Uinta and this is a solid black lager. Pours black with a lightly tan head. Aroma is roasty with coffee and black chocolate notes. Matching taste with a lighter build than a porter. light carbonation on the palate with an easy finish. Would have again.

12 oz. bottle pours black with a small frothy tan head and good lacing. Smells of roasted malts and grains. Aroma is full of roasted malts and coffee. I expected a thinner body from a lager, but don’t complain at all. Tastes slightly sweet with the hops and a smoky flavor (almost like bacon) coming out in the finish. I’m glad to have picked up 6 of these. Cool label and compass bottle neck, too.

Very dark appearance with very little head. Robust aroma of roasted malt and some burnt sugar sweetness. Taste follows as mostly well roasted malts with some piney tones and even milk stout chocolate-like presence. Real dark for 4% lager, even though it is definitely not as thick as a stout or porter. Good stuff.
