Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Ghost River Black Magic has a pronounced toasted malt flavor that creates a smooth roasted flavor without the bite found in a typical stout or porter. The end result is a dark beer with great flavor and drinkability.

Had on tap while in memphis. Pours a nice dark brown color with a nice head

Very nice and balanced aromas of roasted malts, coffee beans, and some chocolate

This has a real nice feel, but lacking a little bit of body. Balanced with nice flavors of malts and chocolate

This was a real good beer. One of the better southern brews I had on my trip and very enjoyable

Serving type: on-tap

4/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives looking almost like a stout, with a dark brown color and a tan head that leaves a fairly nice amount of lace

Smell: Chocolate and brown bread

Taste: Chocolatey, up front, with a bready counterpoint that develops by mid-palate; after the swallow, the chocolate flavors linger

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Not a real dark chocolate flavor, but a flavor that has some milk chocolate character; closer to a stout than the typical schwarz - perhaps a function using an ale yeast

Serving type: on-tap

They said at the brewery that this is a Scwarzbier brewed with an ale yeast.
A- Pours a black, slightly brown when held to light, with a thick tan head that disappates into something of a foam and leaves wonderful lacing.
S- A bit of hoppiness, and some coffee aromas. Appealing, but mild.
T- Coffee, some dark chocolate, a good amound of balancing hops to it. A very clean and refreshing finish.
M- Smooth carbonation, very smooth. Medium bodied for style. Pretty silky up front and a clean finish.
D- Very drinkable. This is far and away my favorite Ghost River beer, and thus far, it has to be near the top of my Schwarzbier experiences.

Serving type: growler
