Had on tap for $5.99 a pint at Terry's Terrace in Harrison Township (?), Michigan.
Just not as impressed as the majority of people here.
Appearance: Pitch black with a creamy finger or two of head. Pretty gorgeous, if I may say so. The lacing doesn't last through the whole glass, but it's nice looking regardless.
Smell: Quite interesting, like the taste is... smells like a stout or dark coffee with hops. Has roasted malts, coffee, and... hops.
Taste: A lot like the smell, but with tastes of char and smoke as well. The hops aren't present initially, but kick in on the finish. It definitely has a different taste for the average craft beer drinker (whatever that means), but it's certainly not an unpleasant one. I definitely preferred this beer when it was a little bit colder than room temperature -- once it warmed up, the alcohol could be traced, there was a warmth in the throat, the primary taste was that of smoked wood, and the bitterness really kicked in. I didn't hate it, but it was certainly tastier within the first 15-20 minutes of having it, as it seemed to just be more balanced.
It isn't my favorite of the style, but it has a unique taste to it... it had me thinking, and it really changes quite a lot the more it warms up. Wouldn't be my go-to black ale, but it's a very nice offering from a brewery that I have never heard of. Good going, Greenbush.
Serving type: on-tap
