4.21/5 rDev +11.4%
On-tap at Parker Pie Wings at the Newport State Airport in the NEK of Vermont!
A: Well...it's pitch black. Frothy off white head that settles into some nice lace and retention.
S: Roasted malt and smoke dominate. Charred, woody, smoky goodness.
T: Similar to the nose. Seriously smoked. Didn't expect it but it's a nice twist on the style without being a true rauchbier.
M: Slightly spicy with plenty of carbonation but lots of great flavor and a delicious finish.
O: Big fan of this beer but I've always been a fan of black ales and smoked beers. A nice change from all the hops I've been enjoying.

3.4/5 rDev -10.1%
On tap at Lost Nation. Served in a minisnifter.
Appearance - Despite its name, it's not quite black. Deep reddish brown. Nice khaki head. Laces well. Good retention.
Smell - Slight roastiness, but much more of a dark fruit presence. Yeastiness, too. Rustic is the word they would probably use here.
Taste - Roasted malt is first, surprisingly. A hint of coffee and smoke. Then some sweet fruity malts. Hops build up in the finish contrasting the whole profile.
Mouthfeel - A little creamy. Medium light. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Tastes pretty good, but isn't the most interesting beer.

On tap at Lost Nation.
Brown-black color typical of the style, with a small cap of tan head that held at a ringlet, dotting the glass with lacing. In the nose, dark roasty malts, mineral, pine needles. Similar taste, dark malts, mild roastiness, piney hops, moderate bitterness, tobacco, and an earthy/mineral aspect. Medium body, slick mouthfeel. Pretty good for the style.
