Wasn't super crazy at first but it has really grown on me. Great dark beer. Stout characteristics without the meatiness. Great chocolatey notes that come out more as the beer warms. Better than Guinness black lager.

Taken from a recipe from 1554, this black lager is crisp and light with a dry, subtle chocolate finish.

Toasty and coffee aftertaste. Good beer

A very typical black lager. Dark and coffee tones to start. Then lightens.

Not a fan of dark beers at all, but this one was smooth and tasty!

Goes great with brownies

Dark color, but surprisingly lighter in taste than expected. Maybe because it is a lager and I typically attic to ales. Really nice coffee and chocolate finish. Definitely liked it as it wasn't overbearing.

Similar to Zwanzigs nut brown ale. Maybe a little darker. Not as sweet.
