Notes/Commercial Description:
Don’t let the color deceive you, this beer is lighter than it looks and packs a big hop punch.

3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours fairly deep brown, but not quite black, with hints of light sneaking through the body, producing some lighter red tones. A medium, tan colored head forms and retains amazingly well. The lacing is also very good.

S- First scent that is prominent is a quick hit of floral hops bitterness. Right after the hops, dark roasted malt scents kick in. Bitter, dark coffee is the primary dark malt in the scent. After the dark malts, some of the floral hops qualities come back.

T- Starts with a fairly strong dose of the dark roasted malts, again, primarily bitter coffee flavors. This persists throughout, but the hops start kicking in shortly after the malts. The hops are moderate in strength, but not strong enough to overcome the roasted malts, which begin to take over. The flavors combine to turn into kind of a watered down mix of both profiles. The brew ends with a continued roasted bitterness, combined with some of the hop bitterness.

M- Not heavy in body, yet not light. The hops and dark roasted malts combine to be a little slower to drink than other black ales. Overall weight is somewhat watery and thin.

Black with ruby highlights. Massive head of bone-toned foam. Attractive lace.

Nose is rich, dark, bittersweet chocolate. I get a hint of hops, but it's pretty obscure.

Taste is nicely hopped, followed by a roasty charred finish. A solid and enjoyable brew combining some usually disparate styles.

Also of note -- I love the stark, dark, and stylish bottle art.

4.33/5  rDev +18.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a complete dark black packaging. Recommended by the store guy. This is the local beer from a very good brewery Flat 12.

Color is deep black. One finger thick nice tan colored head with extremely good retention. Excellent lacing on the sides. Opaque and calm. Very strong black ale appearance.

Aroma is of dark roasted malts and pungent hops. Earthy and ground. Strength is moderate at its best. With a killer aroma this ABA would be exceptional and beyond awesome. Some wood and weed in the nose as well. Charred and burnt up malts display their presence.

Flavor is very good. A good weed and herbal hop presence upfront. Bitter. A well balanced and nuanced middle in the form of burnt up black malts. Ends with super performance once again by bittering hops. Some ground coffee as well. Finish is bitter. An ale with a lot of things going on simultaneously and the flavor comes out trumps at the end.

Mouth feel is medium bodied with slight thickness. Good oily feel in the middle as well. Decent warmth. Good bitterness due to charred character. Moderate carbonation.

A gem of a beer. I like it.

More Flat 12 beers being bottled is perfectly alright with me. Cheers to growing breweries!

A: Thin head of tan bubbles, thin texture to the body, but with a color as deeply black as beer can be. Lacing and retention are sparse.

S: A bold nose of dark, delectable flavor: freshly roasted coffee, burnt toast, brownie batter, and rich maple stand out the most. Breakfast in a glass, nearly, but with emphasis on the aromas of roast malt. Slight foray into hoppiness as pine peaks near the end of the nose.

T: Pronounced bitterness all the way around, starting with sharp, spicy hop tones of pine and pepper. As the bitters swell, this beer’s roasted character arrives in full force, bringing the level of astringency even higher – powerful tastes of charred wood and dark chocolate, supported by toasted bread crust, peat, and warm pumpernickel. Make no mistake, this is a very bitter beer. Finishes with a dry, burnt biscuit taste that lasts for minutes at a time.

M: Feels pretty thin, but with a good amount of frothy carbonation, it goes down inoffensively. In fact, the flavors are so crisp that any more kick might be too much, so this texture works well.

O: This is a beer worthy of a six-pack purchase, at least. While balance isn’t exactly the name of the game here, the flavors contained here are too big for this little bottle; this is a damn satisfying drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured a rather thin brown, for it being a beer called Nonemore Black, but it did have decent head and lacing. Very spicy aroma, hints of rye and German noble hops. Quite spicy in the taste, without much roastiness at all; more like a standard pale ale than a black pale ale. Rather rough going down as well.

On tap at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend.

Pours near black with a good off white head and a pretty good amount of lacing. Nose has roast and citrus with a slight earthy character. Good flavor with a bit too much roast. Medium body with a dry finish. Plenty of roast and hops. Pretty good.
