Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

If it's black, does that mean it has more THC...? Anyway, this stuff pours a dark black-garnet topped by a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises char, light vinyl, mandarin orange syrup, and a dash of cocoa powder. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a good element of dark greenery tossed in for good measure (or variety...whichever you prefer). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, this particular black ale just didn't do it for me. The darker aspects were too charred, to plastic-y, and the hoppier aspects didn't meld with the darker entirely well. Still, there was a definite focus on balance, which was almost achieved.
