We craft our S1NIST0R Black Ale using a special German dehusked black malt that is free of astringency, giving the beer a rich black color without the traditional dark beer characteristics. You will notice subtle hints of chocolate with an easy drinking balance on the back end. In the glass the dark color may look intimidating to some, but don't let this beer fool you. Our unique combination of malts creates a very light body and smooth finish.

5 Star beer that may not be perfect for every occasion but is an anomaly of perfection.

Appearance - Read the label, think Spanish coffee.

Smell - Least strongest attribute, but who cares it's winter and you're sinus' are plugged.

Taste - Words so fancy my vocabulary doesn't do justice , sweet and bitter, liquid crunch 'n munch.

Mouthfeel - Like my tongue jumped on a pile of pillows.

Overall - A drinkable "winter" beer. In a category by itself and won't compare to overbearing , stomach filling, fancy spiced constituents. It truly is one of a kind.

Bomber that I picked up in Pocatello on the way back from Yellowstone. Poured into my beer goblet.

Appearance: Black with an off white cap of head. It sticks around through out the glass, the lacing sticks around as well.

Smell: A touch of roast and some cocoa, but mostly I get fruity yeast. I wonder what strain they use. Seriously, the nose is almost tropical fruity.

Taste: The taste is a mild overall flavor. The darkness of the beer does not translate to the taste, in the way one might expect. No roast or stout flavors. Smooth easy drinking with a medicinal or minty even aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with medium soft carbonation. Has a slick sort of feel to it.

Overall: This beer is truly mixed up and does not fit a style, but it is quite tasty. I would seek this one again.
