It has some rich flavors: very nutty and molasses-y. There is a roasted quality to it, and on top of that probably some chocolate too, but it’s not that sweet. I am not really into super hoppy beers (yet), and the Black Lager is very un-hoppy. I will say that it tastes much fuller on tap than out of the bottle, but goes down clean nonetheless (what does that even mean?), and is not at all filling.
