Beer #8 8/9/13

This beer, GBS's newest, is their take on one of craft beer's biggest trends right now, and it definitely is black. A big, monstrously creamy and frothy tan head rests at well over a finger for the full session and sticks almost in sheets on the glass.
This beer has big notes of piney hops and roast, mingling very well together while each part manages to remain distinct. It's also the biggest beer they've brewed to this point, and I'm honestly impressed with what they've done here. The bitterness and the roast are both very big, while neither overshadows the other. The malts don't go too tangy or acerbic, and the balance is very good for the size. Some citrus does come out with a zesty note in the middle.
The medium body holds a big crispness more than anything, giving it life and a bit of bite the whole way through.
This is very much the best beer Great Black Swamp has done. Having had their Bullfrog stout over coffee just before, it was easy to note how the tangy and acidic notes in the stout detracted from it, while this beer didn't seem to have any of those flaws. I think they're coming along.
