16 oz can from "Lifesource",Salem Oregon
Pours a very very dark mahogany,almost black with a nice frothy tan head.
Very deep toasted,roasted malt aromas..like dark french coffee with a touch of heavy cream. Nice.
Taste is bitter salty dark chocolate and treacle. Some ashy aspects to the flavour also but its nice,finished dark coffee no sugar!
Nice dry palate..goes well with the style.
Good different beer they call it a Stout lager but i think its a schwarzbier.
Stoutlager, huh? OK. Looks more porter like, but in the end is a nice black lager...lots of roast and supporting caramel and chocolate with a slightly dry finish. Can. chinchill (4939) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2016
16 oz can served in a snifter.
Looks enticing, with a large, durable, tan head over an opaque, dark brown body. Plenty of sticky lacing gets left on the glass.
Dark roasted grains with some dank and faintly off notes. The flavor follows, albeit a bit better than the aroma suggests.
Feel: smooth, medium body with relatively high but soft carbonation.

Pours a brown with a tan head and good lacing.
Smell is of milk chocolate.
Taste is on the thin side, dark chocolate and some nuts. nearbeer (5372) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Pint can. Pours jet black with a creamy espresso foam on top. Nose is mild espresso and dried grass with hints of berry, cream and caramel. Flavors of lightly tart blackberry, cream, piquant green herb, caramel and dry cocoa. Finish has some char and ash that keeps the sweeter malts in check. Medium plus body has a smooth medium carbonation. Nice balance with just a wee bit of a slant to the sweet side. Bill Becker (1011) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Pours black with 2" of tannish foam.
Smell is of coffee, dark chocolate and heavy on the roast,
The taste is a mix of both dark and milk chocolate leaning more towards the former. That and the coffee and roasted malt give this brew a decidedly bitter taste overall.
Smooth creamy mouthfeel.
This is delicious!

I don’t like many crafts in cans. This "stout lager?" is delicious though. Almost chocolatey. Mildly bitter, doesn?t hang on. Nice brew. Sledutah (7491) - Utah, USA - OCT 6, 2014

Aroma of dark malts and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate with a mild bitterness in the finish, dry
Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. Looks great.
The aroma is chocolate, a little burnt malt and ripe fruit.
The taste loaded with burnt and roasted malt. The bitterness right in perfectly. The finish has the slightest sweetness.
Medium body with some fizz but moderate carbonation overall.
Well done. RobertDale (6393) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 14, 2014
16 ounce can. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt. Taste is roasted malt with some smoke and chocolate. Interesting. bpreo (2832) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2014
It’s actually a combination between a German Schwarzbier and an American Stout. Super tasty, good alcohol content.
