on tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY

Pours near black under a dark tan head that leaves rings of heavier lacing.

On the nose I get dark malts and chocolate.

Tasty and fresh tasting brew. More dark chocoate and dark malts. With hops drying out the finish.

Glad to try this full flavor and chocolatalicious black PA.

22oz brown bomber, sample bottle from the brewery.

Great looking web-like lacing on the glass, complete darkness. Piney, minty, pithy, rind-like hop nose with some undertones of dark malt. Lovely smoothness, mild roasted character, semi-aggressive hopping. Very well balanced with lots of layers. Drinkable, had no problem knocking this one back and wanting more.

Had on tap at the Buddha beer bar- pours a dark black color, with two fingers of mocha colored head, good retention and nice even lacing.

Smell is mild and mostly of light citrusy hops and chocolate malt.

Taste is more roasted and chocolate malts than hops by far. Somewhat disappointing and more like a rich porter than a black ale.

Mouthfeel is nice- medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Won't get this one again, even though it's a decent beer. Not what I was thinking (too chocolatey and rich without enough hop presence) and definitely not as good as the rye.

On draft at Tap and Barrel, Smithtown, NY.

Poured a deep black hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an herbal hop atop a full roasted malt.

The taste consisted of an upfront assertive toasted barley with a secondary herbal hop spice and a faint citrus.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty Blsck pale ale.
