We took the recipe for our Black Lager and doubled the ingredients, put it in stainless for two weeks and laid it down in bourbon Barrels. Six months later the magic happened and the goat was birthed. Black Goat is a Double Black Lager; sure to please the harshest of critics. Caution: this billy kicks!

Had this on tap last night at Perrin, was very good. Really wanted to try the malted milk stout but it ran out earlier in the week.

I had this beer as part of a flight at Perrin Brewery. Nice and thick, felt like a good stout. On the sweeter side. Definitely has a chocolate mocha taste to it. Very good overall.

Poured into a tulip it is black with a beige head of 2 inches. Smell of bourbon, chocolate, tons of coffee, slight caramel, a good amount of vanilla, and a little bit of roasted malt. Taste is bitter roasted malt, slight vanilla, chocolate, slight coffee, some light bourbon, slight oak, and a bit of alcohol on the end. Mouth feel is a tad bit oily and full with a full body as well and a slight creamy moderate carbonation. A nice barrel aged beer for the price ($11.99?) , but not a ton of barrel flavor and a not as complex as I'd hoped.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was just released this month. Listed at 8.5% on the bottle. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, light dark fruit/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and moderate bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toasted dark bread, molasses, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, light dark fruit/herbal, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark bread, molasses, vanilla, toffee, bourbon, oak, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and moderate bourbon barrel flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial Schwarzbier style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and moderate bourbon barrel flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
