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.

Serving type: on-tap

A-I wouldn't call it Pitch black but it's quite dark. Head is slightly tan and well formed. It retains it's body but doesn't lace all that much.

S-I was assuming this to be more of a Black IPA and I am pleasantly surprised to find out it isn't at all. This smells like a mellow, easy drinking Black Ale with some mysteries within that dark body. Smoky, a little burnt and very light in hoppiness.

T-Flavor is less burnt and more agreeably sweet, however I wouldn't necessarily call it a very sweet beer. It's a bit earthy and also it's definitely roasty. The color and the flavor seem to not match up but I like it.

M-Lighter bodied. Lively carbonation. Crisp. Dare I say refreshing?

O-I liked this beer a bunch. Doesn't taste anything like how it looks. Has enough interesting flavors too. Also happy it wasn't a Black IPA because I really wasn't in the mood for one.
