A Note on This Beer
Today’s Blacklight Black Lager is no ordinary Lager.
To start, it’s really a Schwarzbier, with a midnight pour and roasty coffee notes from specialty dark malts. And, it’s not just any Schwarzbier — the brewers at Block 15 amped it up with German Hops for whispers of dried apricot and plum alongside a gentle kick of floral bitterness.
Then, they took things even further with extended cold conditioning! This process smoothed out the brew’s roasty malt flavors and brought in nuances of toasted almonds and dark chocolate.
It’s like a refreshing dessert — mocha flavors topped with a sprinkling of nuts and dried fruit, wrapped in a smooth, very drinkable body!
Though, unless you happen to be in the Pacific Northwest — ideally at Block 15’s brewery in scenic Corvallis, Oregon — stocking up the fridge with this special Lager is going to be tough. Limited releases like Blacklight are super tough to come by outside the region!
In fact, this is the first-ever Lager of any style we’ve been able to sneak out of Block 15’s taproom. And that makes it even more extraordinary.
*Block 15 just nabbed another Great American Beer Festival medal to add to their trophy case of awards.
