Samuel Adams Black Lager

Samuel Adams Black Lager from the Boston Beer Company, is part of their Brewmaster's Collection. It pours a deep, nearly black color, with a small light-colored head. As you can see in the photo, the head disappeared pretty quickly. It's roughly in the style of a Schwartzbier and is smooth and easy to drink. The flavor is more roasty than a typical lager, and the hop character is much less pronounced than their standard Boston Lager. I really enjoyed this one, and would welcome a six-pack from time to time. This was purchased in their "Brewmaster's Collection", which also included their Brown Ale and Honey Porter.
