look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

on tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY

Pours near black under a dark tan head that leaves rings of heavier lacing.

On the nose I get dark malts and chocolate.

Tasty and fresh tasting brew. More dark chocoate and dark malts. With hops drying out the finish.

Glad to try this full flavor and chocolatalicious black PA.

Had this on tap last week at Beer Authority in New York. This was the first time that I sampled anything from the Bronx Brewery and as a Black Ale, this was quite good with just a bit of a hop kick in the back. The mouthfeel was just a tad heavier than I expected and this almost had the smell and taste of a Porter. Given that I haven't had many examples this style, that's probably more common than not but regardless of the stylistic boundaries that this straddled, it was a good brew that was nice to sip before heading over to the Garden to watch some NCAA basketball.

various flavors will come to you. this has a hoppy start with malt following, with some sharpness to it. some bitterness, chocolate/coffee and hop flavors combine for a strong and good tasting brew. High quality stuff.
And in spite of some distinct hoppiness, my wife, who does not like overbearing hops also liked it, so there is some malt sweetness in there too.
If both my wife and I like it, many people will enjoy this one. But this is a strongly flavored ale- not for Coors light drinkers.
Looking forward to finding another product from this company

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a deep black hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an herbal hop atop a full roasted malt.

The taste consisted of an upfront assertive toasted barley with a secondary herbal hop spice and a faint citrus.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty Blsck pale ale.
