No, but I imagine it is the same or similar to the Paul's Black lager they experimented with last year. And, that my friends was the sh#t.

Almost more of a stout than a black lager, I'd say. I thoroughly enjoyed my bottle... might have to go back for another.

Stout is an ale...so if its black and its a lager, then its a black lager.

There are myriad historical and contemporaneous examples of stouts and porters made with lager yeast.

The Paul's Black lager was really good stuff. I'll have to give this a try too.

Even if there were not already examples of stouts made with lager yeast (as remilard pointed out), this beer would be the first. It's like a imperial stout crossed with a schwartzbier. Big, roasty, coffee taste and aroma... it's a good beer.

(There was a brief chat about the topic here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/lage...t-stout-65300/)

That makes sense then. Baltic porter, which is pretty much what you are describing is fermented with lager yeast.
