12oz "stubby" bottle served in a pilsner glass. Pours clear dark brown with a large khaki head that quickly recedes to a thin capping. Smells mildly sweet with notes of oatmeal and cocoa. The flavor has a touch of roastedness to it with some oats, chocolate, and dough backing it up. Finishes dry with a slight chocolate note. Leaves a nice coating of lace down most of the glass. Nice full flavored lager that doesn’t over do it and keeps it sessionable.

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.

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.

Bottle from Trader Joes that I took camping. Roasty black flavors were nicer than most lagers. This was not too bad really.

This is a good dark malty lager. Smooth drinking plenty of flavor would recommend.

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.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stubby bottle into stout glass. Dark ruby beer that is not as black as I was expecting. Decent head that sticks around a bit. Not much aroma - mild malt and that is about it. Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel - light but not at all watery. Hints of milk chocolate, vanilla and smooth malt. No real bitterness. Very good easy drinker. Would be interesting to try this one on nitro!
