Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This beer is part of the 'Brewmaster's Collection' from Samuel Adams. I am not a fan of dark or black beers, but I thought this one was exceptional. The beer had definite tones of roast malt and caramel/chocolate. It poured out like a liquid gold candy bar. I mean, this was a really good beer. Most darker beers tend to be filling up front and get a tad bitter toward the end of the glass. I am very pleased that two of these bottles found their way into the casket. You can bet that the second Black Lager will be savored like the first!
