From BeerAdvocate Magazine #74 (Mar 2013):

Initial thought is that this beer feels like the benchmark for the style. While some will argue the style is still being defined, it seems most of the great ones resonate toward the traits Black Cannon wields. It does not try to devastate the palate or confuse it by incorporating other style traits; it stays the course.

STYLE: American Black Ale
ABV: 7.25%
AVAILABILITY: Seasonal

LOOK: Deep brown, excellent lacing

SMELL: Faint roasted grain, mild chocolate, hop resin, orange zest, piney, toasted bread crust, parsley

TASTE: Smooth, almost silky, creamy, fullish body, dark chocolate, faint burnt sugar, hop bitterness, herbal, vague citrus, hint of alcohol, dank, semidry hoppy finish

Beer poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. Pours pitch black with a light brown head that disappears quickly. Smells of coffee and some hops, but weak. Tastes of some flowery hops and coffee, nice combination. Beer is light bodied, nicely carbonated, good finish. Overall, an above average beer.

Great beer, looking forward to finding every year, believe it's a seasonal beer, or was.
