Draft at pony bar HK with Brendan. Pours a deep Guinness body with thick white head. Aroma is light roast, milk/lactose and deep round malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with notes of chocolate milkshake, round malt and soft smoke/roast. alobar (3966) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Easily the best beer I’ve had in awhile. Pours brown with reddish hues. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, and caramel. Roasted malt, coffee, and caramel flavor with just a hint of smoke. Very nice beer! Jayb0 (1218) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Excellent beer. The description is spot on, this is right there between schwarzbier and smoked porter. The smokiness is so well done it melds with , doesn’t dominate the somewhat creamy sweet, light coffee malt character. The lagering keeps it clean and sharp at the finish. More please. jamaty (2268) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 7, 2015
Negra, con notable espuma beige. Buen aroma, ahumado y con notas de chocolate. En boca cuerpo medio, base dulce de caramelo y malta tostada, y chocolate amargo. Final ahumado que compensa el dulzor predominante. Rica.

This smoky black lager was a great recommendation from our brew house. The rich caramel flavors and clean crisp palate made this something I will enjoy again.

6oz sample from a 12oz bottle purchased at the beer cabin in Plattsburgh. The aroma has some smoked malts with a little tinny, metallic character. Light roast, too. Transparent ruddy mahogany body with a medium light tan head present. Starts with mild smoke and some metallic sweetness. The middle is a bit thin and watery. Finishes with a little roast. A bit thin. Kind of lacking body, but smoke is decent. jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 25, 2015
From 12oz bottle, variety pack $16, poured into 16oz tulip glassSlackerMads (3583) - DENMARK - MAY 15, 2015
Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, caramel
Appearance: black with tan head
Taste: Light bitter
Palate: medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, crisp bitter finish
Overall: Really enjoy this. Reminds me a lot of a really great schwarzbier. Nice aroma and wonderful balance of roasted and chocolate malts. Very rich malty taste with some smokey aromas. A very solid dark, lightly smoked, lager. Nice clean, crisp taste.
Bottle. Dark brown with a small quickly dissipating tan head. The nose has some roasted malt, syrup, light toffee. The flavour offers mild smoke, roasted malt, figs, light caramel and toffee. Medium body, the texture feels a bit thin and sticky, prickling carbonation. Some sweetness, balanced bitterness. Soft finish with roasted malt. Ok, but doesn’t excite me much.
