This lightless brew breathes powerful dark malts; rich cocoa entwines with roasted malt scents while light traces of smoke wind through the bouquet. Despite its ominous appearance, this lager washes buoyantly over the tongue. Roasted malts stream down the middle, while dark chocolate adds depth to the flavor. Caramel emerges in the back where its sweetness is balanced by earthy hops. A bitter malt twang nips the sides of the tongue and merges with an earthy wave for a gentle finish. Black’s packed with well-organized flavors, but its quiet presence leaves the taste buds wanting a bit more.
