BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Perrin Brewery
Michigan, United States
perrinbrewing.com

Style: Schwarzbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We took the recipe for our Black Lager and doubled the ingredients, put it in stainless for two weeks and laid it down in bourbon Barrels. Six months later the magic happened and the goat was birthed. Black Goat is a Double Black Lager; sure to please the harshest of critics. Caution: this billy kicks!

Damn waste of a pint money wise. Looks like a shwartz, smells in the range, but acidic domination makes it underdrinkable. At Slow's BBQ. Of course, mouthfeel is comprimised.

On tap at the brewery. Black body. Aroma is oak, some bourbon, dark chocolate and black malt. Tastes of bourbon with a heavy dose of oak. Chocolate and roast. Low sweetness, but not bitter either. Smooth creamy finish. Lingering vanilla. Medium heavy. Pretty good, but also pretty alcoholic.

Appearance is pretty much pitch black.
Aromas are vanilla bean, dark chocolate, dark fruit and oaky bourbon.
Tastes are pretty similar with similar with the dark fruit and bourbon really coming through.
The palate is medium plus with a nice lingering soapy finish. Some bourbon heat lingers as well.
Overall this is a really nice bourbon aged lager.
