Full Sail Session Black ....

Friday night and time for an adult beverage.  Today it will be Session Black, Premium Dark Lager, from Full Sail Brewing Company.  The 11 ounce bottle shows 5.4% ABV.  The web site lists IBUs at 18.

This beer poured with a small, rich brown head.  Beer color is a dark reddish brown which lets very little light through the glass.  Nice aroma with a lot of caramel/toffee/brown sugar.  Maybe a little cocoa.  The taste has some cocoa, but not as much sweetness as was implied in the aroma.  Smoky, roasted malt.  Medium bodied.  Leaves you with a little of that smoky, cocoa taste and feeling on your tongue.  This is a nice, flavorful beer that makes you think more of a porter or a stout than a lager.
