On tap at the brewery
L - dark brown with a tall frothy tan head that holds incredible retention and leaves thick lacing on the glass as it fades
S - fruity, banana, yeast; very pleasant yet rather subtle aroma
T - roasted barley, baker's chocolate, caramel, toasty bread, yeast, banana, clove, pepper, coriander, tea leaf; nice complexity, bold but balanced
F - medium, creamy, smooth, finishes dry with ample bitterness
O - really nice Belgian black. I could easily drink a few of these. I'm looking forward to trying more from this brewery!

Dark black body with an off white head. Chocolate and pine on the nose. Really interesting scent that leads directly to the flavor. Light roast but semi sweet chocolate then a slight piney bitterness. The key to this black ale is the bitterness is very much in check. The roasted malt really adds a semi sweet chocolate rather than a bitter bakers chocolate or a coffee roast. That allows the hops to remain part of the flavor profile. There is a hint of citrus rind but primarily floral pine. Really nicely balanced black ale akin to a New Glarus Black Top rather than some of the overtly roasty or dank black ales out there.
