What a fantastic concept. This is a dark LAGER. Most of the flavor of a porter, but without the heaviness and a lot less bitter. I like porters, but sometimes you have to have a change. I will be buying more of this beer.
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has smooth dark grains with a bit of toffee and a light hay note. Flavor is similar with grains, bread and a bit of toffee sweetness coming through. jackl (8557) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2017

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt notes with some light hop presence; and good strength. Taste of toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/yeast earthiness. Light earthy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, light herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of roast/bready malt with light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice schwarzbier style. All around good complexity and robustness of roast/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
