Now Oakland United.
Decent dry black lager with nuts and patent malt, tobacco and roast. Dry finish. ffbot (430) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
On tap. A still, mild looking black. No real head and light carb. Smell is barely coffee, barely caramel, mostly watery and some lager presence. Taste is a dirty tasting lager, not really like anything....? It was meh bytemesis (8795) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Tap. Pours clear black, small beige head, some lacing. Aroma of dark roasted malt, coffee, ashtray. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, roasty, hint of smoke. Lightish body. A bad example of the style. nickd717 (4772) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Draft. Darkest brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma is roasty, damp leaves, grains, cold coffee. Nice flavor, grainy and mildly roasty, very dry and slightly bitter. Good if humble example of the style. jrob21 (3760) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Tap with oysters in SF. Probably the setting but this was pretty enjoyable as an experience. Black lager gives you a lot of what you need to know. Light body but a decent bittersweet flavor. Good presence. Light toast with a crisp dry finish.

Dark black. Sweet. Lots of butter at the end. Drinkable. Thx for the growler joey. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
This poured a dark brown with an off white head. Aroma was of light toasted malt, light grassy hops. Flavor was similar, really clean, mild smoke character too. kespecial (255) - - NOV 28, 2014
A nice sessionable brew, if you’re looking to drink in volume. Almost black with thin persistent white head. Roasty, smoky notes on the nose. Smooth malt sweetness with a roasted malt kick to prevent cloying. Some caramel. Pretty good for the style, but a bit thin. jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2014
I really enjoyed this beer. Roasty and not very bitter. Nice and lower abv too. Aquilo (654) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Oaktoberfest 2014. Black with a thick head and nice lace. Coffee and roast nut aromas, with a hint of chocolate. Rich, bitter taste. Absolutely delicious.
