What the brewers say

This lager might be black, but it drinks like your favorite light-colored beer: smooth, sessionable, crisp, and clean.

What our panel thought

Bold, assertive nose—roasty, coffee-forward, with hints of rye, chocolate, licorice, spice, and caramel. That complexity continues into the flavor with more licorice, spicy rye, and herbal hops. Deftly avoids both heaviness of body and harsh bitterness. Intriguing.

What our editors thought

Tight, woody hops and burnt-crust malt notes in the nose lead into the spicy-herbal sip, with notes of licorice that never veer too bitter. Vivacious and lively.
