Life On Tap Episode #348: Satin Jacket (Return Brewing Satin Jacket - Czech Dark Lager)

Out of the cold, Dan seeks a little rest and relaxation with a Czech Dark Lager with Return Brewing Satin Jacket.

Return Brewing Satin Jacket

STYLE: Czech Dark Lager
INGREDIENTS: Bohemian floor-malted pilsner, wheat, and dark malts; Tettnang hops
ABV: 5.1%
IBU: 0
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Dark brown with mahogany on the edges near light, with a light tan, frothy head.


Chocolate, caramel, and almost a blond coffee roast on the nose.


Aroma notes come through, though the caramel presents as darker, as does the coffee roast note. I also got a toasty pumpernickel-like note to meet the earthy/herbal notes from the hops.


Medium body and soft carbonation contribute to a creamy mouthfeel.


This brew totally hit the spot on a cold day, though I suspect I would enjoy this on any day in a comfortable chair. Food-wise, I was feeling a burger or some game like venison or veal tenderloins, but this could be pretty versatile with some well-spiced options.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
