Long ago, an aspiring brewer at Russell wrote the perfect recipe for a black lager. He mysteriously disappeared shortly thereafter, taking with him the recipe. However, it is said that late at night, in the depths of the brewery, only when the lights are turned out, you can hear that aspiring brewer whispering the secrets of the recipe. He mumbles of rich Pilsner, Munich, and Blackprinz malts, German hops, and a clean lager yeast profile. Now that we think about it, maybe he was just stuck behind the mash tun this whole time.
