Reviewed @ Rattle n Hum on 9/1/09,
Appearance: Deep Mohagundy with light cream colored head.
Smell: Piney and grapefruit hops.
Taste: Opens grainy, in the middle piney and bittering hops come through the graininess and just before the finish a hint of malts and alcohol come in leaving a bitter and hoppy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied and slightly coarse.
Drinkability: Definitely worth a try and I would definitely have another.
Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5 rDev -5.5%

Poured into a Stone Snifter.
Decent look - dark brown/super dark red even. Lots of persistent lacing covering the sides all the way down. Nose has some roasted malts along with pine - basically an IPA and Porter combination. Taste is fairly bitter even with the roastiness present. Tolerable. Certainly glad this wasn't very expensive.

Serving Type- From a bottle poured into a pint glass
Appearance- Dark black, thick off white head, almost a silky black color
Smell- Pine, roasted malts, chocolate, spruce
Taste- Pine, roasted malts, chocolate, resin, coffee, a bit of an booze taste but goes down pretty smooth for an 8 plus ABV beer
Mouth-feel- Smooth silky taste, foamy head
Overall- An outstanding black ale one of my favorite black ales around and one of the best beers made by Speakeasy..If you have not tried this beer and you can get it...you MUST try it...its pretty great
