A top notch black lager from Cigar City. Good chocolately malt tones with a hint of roasted coffee and toffee with a very modest hop character. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2012
Draft. Black with good, creamy, tan head / Nose of toasted barley and tobacco / Medium, creamy body with modest acidity and long, dry, bitter finish / Very smooth flavors of dark roast coffee and tobacco, with a hint of dark caramel / Near perfect for this style. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2011
On draft at Cigar City. Another awesome lager from CCB! Pours a dark cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roasted malts, some earth, some slight smoke, some dry chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is similar with hints of chocolate, earth, bits of smoke, and roasted malts. Clean in the finish with just a hint of lingering smoke. Light to medium in body and overall an enjoyable lager. merc7186 (3142) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Thick Creamy Off White Head, Great Lacing
S: Dark Mildly Roasted Chocolate Malts, Mild Coffee, Mild Caramel
T: Dark Roasted Malts, Chocolate, Coffee
M: Great Carbonation, Medium to Full Bodied, Mildly Malty, Mildly Sticky
Overall, a pretty solid black lager made better with the nitro tap, added creaminess and smoothed out the flavors.

I really love the new black lager, and a session beer as well! Nice dark pour, chocolate with a tastefull amount of smokeiness. Tastes great, another winner from CCB!! rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Pours dark brown with a eggshell colored head. Nose is lots of deep roast, chocolate and nice smoke. Flavor is a great roastiness with touches of smoke. Very nice and easy drinking sessionable beer. Fantastic. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Pours dark black coffee with an amber hue and decent creamy caramel head. The aroma brings pleasant roasted malts, fresh coffee, and black licorice. It tastes very similar, starts with light sweet roasted malty coffee notes that taste so fresh and delicious. The body is just right, not crispy or creamy, but so smooth.

Draft at Brass Tap: Poured a deep dark brown/black with a reddish hint. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Taste is a bold malt with spices and molasses. The Germans who follow the code would roll over if they tried this example of Schwarzbier! PorterPounder (8072) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap - Fermentation Lounge. Dark, black as coal pour with a thick mocha colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is very deliciously fragrant with some chicory, licorice and creosote notes. Flavor starts out with some smooth espresso notes, some unsweetened chocolate, finish has some cookie notes to it - similar to a biscotti, a hint of licorice to round it out - very flavorful. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Very solid.
