Misc.: N/A

Poured a basic black color with 2-3 fingers of tan head. Sporadic foamy lacing along the sides. Average retention on the top on the way down.

Smelled cloves right away. Also apple and green grapes. Then came the caramel, toffee and chocolate malts.

Tasted smoky ash, toffee, caramel, cloves, apple and green grapes.

Medium body. Oily-to-thin texture. Lively carbonation. Watery, abrupt finish. Clean and refreshing.

Nice mix of flavors overall. Pretty sure that was my first black witbier.

Reviewed from notes taken at Stone Liberty Station last week in SD. Glad to see some Stone beers coming out of a brewpub-esque setting.

A- Poured from the tap to an 8oz mini-goblet with a pretty much black body, some brown hints around the edges. Small light brown head with a foamy texture forms to about one finger. Decent cap retention and the small ring leaves spotty, thin lace webs.

S- Roasty cocoa with a pronounced Belgian yeast lying underneath. They integrate quite well. Roast grains, banana, coriander, orange peel, clove and some coffee hints.

T- Yeast seems to balance out with the roast grains in the flavor. The yeast brings some more spice and phenols as compared to the aroma with notes of banana, clove, coriander, pepper and citrus zest. Roast grains compliment with cocoa, coffee, toffee and cracked cereal grain coming to mind.

MF- Highly carbonated body with a light-end overall build. Semi-dry and some roast bitterness lingers in the finish. Pretty creamy overall texture.

I wasn't so sure about a Black Witbier to be honest but I could drink a few of these without getting sick of it. The spicy yeast and cocoa driven roast malts come together smoothly.

I had this beer on-tap in a big taster glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: very dark brown, crazy for a witbier but definitely as-advertised. Ivory foam with a nice lacing sits atop. Quite nice.

Smell: a very soapy and floral aroma right up front. It's alright, but not what I'm looking for in the style.

Taste: darkly astringent at first with some light roastiness. Coriander is there, too, but all together this creates this soapy character that I got in the aroma. It's certainly interesting, but it is not really my preference.

Mouthfeel: medium to light body with a good carbonation and a good creaminess. I like it.

Overall: I would not really call this a successful beer, but it is not gross or anything. It just kind of goes off in a bizarre direction that is not my personal taste.
