Served from a 22oz bottle into a surly darkness tulip.
Pours a clear dark brown.. In the tulip glass, it's jet black. Blakkr is appropriately named. Tall head, 1.5 inches or so. 1 minute cool down to settle with some lacing.
From the bottle as I opened it I got some maple and molasses. Grassy with some coconut oil. weird but good.
From the Glass, less maple but defintely grassy. a tiny bit of rubbing alcohol but not pungent, almost distant. description sounds like it's a bad thing, but it's not. Slight Maple notes.
Heavy roasted malts. Smokey, charred. Consistent roasted malts, some citrus in there. Ashy at the end but good. Some slight bitterness.
Nice carbonation. Glass looks heavy and dark like a stout or porter but drinks very light.
Great Black Ale. The bottle was 12.99 i believe. I definitely enjoyed it and would drink again. if you get a chance to pick this up, do it.
