Bend Brewing Co Black Diamond Dark Lager

What the brewers say

“Clean dark chestnut-hued lager with underlying notes of dark chocolate.”

What our panel thought

“The nose is a pleasant balance of toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted malt with hints of floral and perfume-like hops. The borderline-acrid roast notes overpower the flavor profile and wash out much of the subtle nuance. Clean and crisp, but the bitter elements are a bit over the top.”

What our editors thought

“Light chocolate and a bit of smoke/roast on the nose. The sip is clean with light chocolate notes and just a touch of bitterness, but a bit nondescript.”
