COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most beers this dark are so heavy-duty, you could eat them with a fork. Not Session Dark. You've heard of tall, dark and handsome? Well, this black lager is short, dark and drinkable. With notes of roasty chocolate, it's the perfect complement to original Session - a dark beer that doesn't drink like a meal. Session Dark was named #1 in the "Top Ten List of lagers Brewed in the United States" and has nabbed 15 golds over the years, to say nothing of other shiny metallic colors. (Formerly known as Session Black. It's the same great beer with a new look.)

(Bottle) Pretty nice and dark but it’s very astringent. And feels pretty thin. Not great but not terrible.

"pretty much what i expected from this one. a session ale as advertised, nothing more, nothing less. there’s obvious quality to this brew, but it’s nothing to go out of your way for. a little dry, well balanced chocolate malt and hops."

Brown coca cola appearance. Aroma of light roasted malt and burned bread with yeast and light fruitiness. Flavor of burned bread and some malt sweetness. Medium light body. Burned aftertaste. Not bad. Good value.

Roser (44) - Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Appearance- fairly dark, semi clear, mahogany, cola brown. Thin mocha colored head that didn’t last long. Little to no lacing. Smell- clean. Malt and spices. Dark and toasty. Light chocolate notes. Taste- bready, caramel, cocoa. Mouthfeel- smooth and creamy. Crisp. Light bodied. Overall- very good/nice. An above average schwarzbier. Would recommend and have again. Cheers!

Roasty malt scents and some minor caramel slight earthy grass notes. Light off white head and dark brownish red body. Light hops some roasty biscuit and minor earthy coffee and vanilla flavors. Smooth on the palate.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Decent dark beer for a reasonable price. Nothing too special about but good for when you don’t want to put down a lot more money on a specialty or microbrew.

3.2
trapped (3484) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 28, 2014
Drought. Reddish brown with small beige creamy head, light caramel aroma, roasted malt taste, thin body, low carbonation, medium finish with caramel aftertaste. Light but easy to drink.
