Review – Full Sail Session Black
From Full Sail Brewing – So who is the quintessential Session drinker? That’s hard to say, really. You see, virtually everyone who likes beer likes Session. Whether they’re craft beer aficionados, import drinkers or devotees of lawnmower beers, Session is the one beer they can all agree on. Even Session’s name speaks to that rare ability to cross boundaries.
Full Sail Brewing Co. – Session Black – 11.2 oz. stubby bottle poured into a pint glass (only for the review’s sake) 5.4% abv.
Appearance: Pours a fairly clear, midnight red. Not much of a head on top of this beer except a swirl of white at the top.
Aroma: Smells of bread, bread crust, and some sweetness.
Taste: Roasty, ever so slight bitter maltiness. Finishes with a quick semi-sweet punch of cocoa and more roast in the finish, lingering on the back of my tongue and throat.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little coating.
Overall: This beer is full flavored, full bodied beer, with lost of nice roasty characteristics. I need to get back to you all as to how well this Session Black will fare in a session. It’s deceptively rich.

Reviewed this beer yesterday and found it to be a nice little beer. Did a whole Session Black session and found it to be very drinkable throughout the entire evening. Great find!
