BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Barley Mow Brewing Company
Florida, United States
barleymowbrewingco.com

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This assertively hopped medium-bodied American black ale exudes a combination of woodsy and grapefruit hop notes, blended together with a complex dark malt character and subtle hints of chocolate and coffee.

This beer isn't for the weak of palate or heart.

From a growler.
Sweet malts with faint dark roasted malts. The dark roast and some hops appear in the taste.
Oddly, given the sweet aroma, this has a bit more char than I prefer.
Black IPL? .. at least a black APA.
Earthy and herbal hops in the finish and aftertaste.

Cask. Barrel Aged. 'Nuff said. And I'm not even a fan of black ales!

This beer is a definite black IPA. The flavor and smell is that of a IPA but its very good. It is lighter tasting than expected

Pretty good Black Ale. Pours a dense black color into a pint glass from a 12 oz can. Some red light shines through. Big light tan head with good retention and wide bands of filmy tan lacing - a good looking beer. Aroma is mostly roasted malt with some coffee and chocolate. There is a little piney hops in the nose as well. Flavor is similar to aroma except the hops are more pronounced in the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp and rich. Rich malt and piney hops nicely blended together.....makes for a good Black Ale.

Nice dark color. Had this fresh at Barley Mow. Nice head and lacing. Strong piney hop aroma. Dark chocolate, roasty upfront, finishing with hop bitterness. Just what you expect from a black IPA. Very nice.
