Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
An entirely new creation from organic 2-row, organic Crystal 60 and Carafa III, a huskless black malt that gives this beer it’s black color with notes of coffee and chicory without any tannic bitterness. The hop additions are many and generous, featuring Apollo, Horizon, and Nugget, clocking the beer in at 70 IBU. Over 11 pounds per batch of Nugget hops are added directly to the fermenter yielding a resiny herbal and spicy aroma. A hybrid style for dark beer fans who love hops.

On draft into a pint glass. Very dark brown with a nice thick foamy heads and great lacing. Subdued chocolate smell. Not overly hoppy, almost like a porter. The taste is chocolate and coffee with some dark toast. Fruitier taste emerges as it warms a bit. Nice beer.

Had on tap at the Whip In in Austin, TX on 3/18/15

Appearance - Served up in a clear, plastic pint cup with a quarter finger of light khaki head. The brew itself is cola brown in color, and the head settles to a thin layer.

Smell - Citrusy aroma with light pine and a touch of bread and caramel.

Taste - Follows the nose. Citrus hops with lesser notes of pine. Malts are distant, but hints of roast and chocolate do peak through briefly.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with a nice bite from the carbonation. Slick texture, going down smooth before a semi-dry finish.

Overall - Good brew, but nothing particularly unique or noteworthy about it.
