Sonder Nocturnal Dark Lager
Nocturnal Dark Lager. Sonder Brewing. Mason, OH.
Another Cincinnati brewery.
Black. Like stout.
Creamy tan head. Like stout.
Smells like a stout! Huh.
Subsequent smells don’t give me much. First smell was strong. Now it doesn’t smell interesting.
The taste is interesting. It does not taste like stout. It tastes stoutish, but not quite like stout.
Typical caramel, dark chocalate of a stout.
Aimee says “smokey”. I agree. Ash.
Aftertaste is bitter, a bit unpleasant.
Pretty light. Not as heavy as it looks. Watery.
Quite drinkable for such a dark beer.
It’s incomparable to most lagers, more like a porter. I would not choose it over a good porter.
I have not had a beer like this before.
But it isn’t great.
