The appearance is near black in color with a tan head. The nose is fairly light with a vinous aroma, along with that of soy, feint chocolate, and alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium in body with soft carbonation. The taste starts off with a light, roasted maltiness. Caramel emerges midway, followed by some soy flavor toward the back. Very lightly hopped, with a low bitterness. In fact, according to the brewery’s website it’s only at 9 IBUs.

2012 Black Ale is pretty smooth drinking and very mild. I recently had a few pints of this at a local downtown cigar bar. They didn't have any stouts on tap, so I opted for this at their only "darker" option, something I would hope would hold up to the mild cigar I was having. It didn't pretty decent job.

This Black Ale from Stevens Point is excellent! Toasted Caramel, coffee, dark cocoa flavour with a gorgeous Onyx colour with a deep brown head, nice lacing, excited carbonation that tickles the senses. Is in from a Craft Pack package and I'll definitely purchase a 6 pack to enjoy in the near future. The tastes all mingle with a hint of cocoa, licorice, molasses and general beer goodness!!
The tastes lingers on the tastbuds and it make your mouth happy...
Great Job Stevens Point Brewmasters!!!

Overall, a very drinkable, good beer. Pours nicely, good head. Taste as a sweet with complimenting bitter notes. Pairs well with Asian foods. Dark color is definitely apparent. Price is optimal. Initial taste has hints of spices and chocolate with slight hints of caramel.
