Samuel Adams Black Lager

Brown/black pour with a head that quickly turns to a spotty cream on the surface of the beer and some minimal lacing. A little sweet rounded coffee in the nose, but also a very sweet sensation in the aroma and the up-front tastes.

I would describe this as a lactose-milk, carbonated Porter! Does that make sense? Well, if not, it’s sweet, dark, light and easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel and satisfying end. Definitely some roastiness in there, but this only develops on the way through the beer and is not very evident upfront.

I’m not over familiar with the style, but it reminds me of a sweetish Porter without the creaminess. Nice beer, I’d certainly visit again.
