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.

Looks and Smells great with a clean smooth feel on the tongue. It just misses on the flavor.

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

On tap at Brass Tap Brandon.

A - served in snifter with one finger of head. Black in color with a brown head and slowly disapates leaving nice lacing.

S - chocolate and sweet scents to the nose.

T - chocolate coffee and not sweet at first sip. Liquorice. Slight alcohol to taste. Has an aftertaste I'm not fond of.

M - medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

Overall - Worth trying. Not a beer I would have again though.

Pours a light brownish color with dark ivory colored head. Pine, roast, and some light coffee tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with piney roast.

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.
