SINGLECUT JOHN MICHAEL WHITE COFFEE-INFUSED DARK LYRIC LAGRRR

Masterfully hybridized dark lager (named after devilish rocker John Michael “Ozzy” Osbourne) is a cut above the rest of most so-called German-styled schwarzbiers. Resonating ‘white’ Ethiopian coffee roast pleasantly inundates light dry-hopped bittering and dark-roasted mocha malting. Milked espresso, cocoa bean and toffee subsidies wispily affect persuasively bittersweet creamed coffee theme. Perfect for light-roast coffee fanatics as a seductive after dinner relaxant.

MAGIC HAT HOWL WINTER LAGER

Unconventional winter lager better classified as first rate schwarzbier since expectant seasonal spicing lacks penetration. Barley-roasted cocoa-powdered mocha indulgence counters ashy walnut bittering and dry hop-charred astringency to earthen peat bottom. Stove-burnt coffee, chocolate seed, smoked molasses, and fig-date illusions politely sour smooth medium-bodied contrariety.

ROGUE CHATOE DIRTOIR BLACK LAGER

Smooth jet black schwarzbier with egg-shelled cherry wood head recalls finer Baltic porters. Brown-sugared cocoa-dried Baker’s chocolate frontage receives subtle peat-smoked peanut-shelled walnut, cola nut, and Brazil nut bittering to offset sweet toffee, caramel, and cookie dough sweetness. Oily coffee souring, mild espresso dirge, and peat-smoked mineral-grained soy nuance add depth to a creamier, more assertive black lager than usual ill-defined rivals.
