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.

Don't be put off by the low price, this ale is done right. It's not the finest in the world but it tastes really good. It's not like coming home to a warm, horny, loving mate, but it's a good kisser. Like your lover, it may not be around for long, so get it while you can.
