Poured from 11 ounce (cheap Full Sail bastards!) bottle at Supersuckers concert at Southgate House Revival on December 1, 2012. Small slightly off white head, cola color, light malty aroma, initial mouthfeel of carbonation followed by a light sweeetness. Definitely not enough flavor to be sessionable or a proper schwarzbier, and it’s not a particularly impressive dark lager in general. This is the second beer I’ve had with the word session in its name (Saranac Session IPA is the other) that’s anything but a session brew. As they say, caveat emptor.
325ml bottle. Clear, mahogany colour with small, creamy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Caramel malty and minimally nutty aroma, a touch of milk chococlate. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, minimally nutty, a touch of milk chococlate, minimally citrusy hoppy counterweight, a spicy touch of liquorice; oily texture, super soft palate. sinfull (1635) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Dark brown color. Medium-sized, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet, malty taste with bitter , roasted notes at the end. Seemed kind of weak and thin. Not bad though.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Pooler, GA. The appearance is a dark brown to black color with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is a mostly chocolate with some malt. The taste follows the nose. A very good beer. 17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 5, 2016

11 oz bottle in Oregon.
Mild flavor and aroma but strong enough to leave a light lingering flavor of dark roasted grains and light bitter hops.
Solid but not extraordinary flavor. Exceptional soft and smooth but lively mouthfeel.

Session signature short bottle, skipped the pour. Thanks to Eugene for the bottle/reminder that I never rated this back in my Session kick days. Creamy chocolate malt. Almost like a sweet cream, milk chocolate porter. Interesting, unique lager. Dark, but cool finish. Pretty good stuff. fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle from Trader Joes that I took camping. Roasty black flavors were nicer than most lagers. This was not too bad really. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - JAN 29, 2016
This is a good dark malty lager. Smooth drinking plenty of flavor would recommend. Foxbush (2008) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2015
12 oz bottle One of the twelve beers of Christmas The beer poured a clear dark brown to black. The beige head dissipated quickly. The aroma of roasted caramel malts and chocolate. The beer has a light body and soft carbonation. The taste of roasted malts dominate and there are hints of chocolate. The finish is clean with hints of some bitterness.
