Style: Schwarzbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Black Ale is low in gravity, clean, crisp, and flavor-filled; giving off a bread-like aroma. This beer proves that deep colors do not signify rich potency. Our Black Ale is deceptively light on the tongue.

Coffee-esque. Pours very dark, with a smaller head. This is one of my "all-day" beers. Has a solid ABV and refreshing flavor, as I am a fan of coffee flavors. One of my favorite local beers is this one right.

12 oz can with a 2017 date stamp.
Pours with a black body topped with a very good tan head. Fine lacing.
Better aroma than flavor, although the flavor is about average quality and typical for style.
Lively carbonation in a medium+ body.

Pleasant low-cost Black. Black ales are among my favorite, but this lacks luster.
A) Average head, looks, black with brown highlights, no lace
S) Starts with malty sweetness with medium roasted aroma. Too Faint.
T) Follow smell but gets better. More roasted aroma comes through. Weak coffee with nutty appeal.
F) Smooth, thin, light bodied.

After a long day of driving a working outside this beer sounded very good. Despite the cold, something lighter was in order and I have a thing for dark beers so this one sounded awesome. Plus, it was a local option since I was in Grand Rapids.

This beer pours a black and opaque hue with very little carbonation visible. An off white head recedes quickly to a thin ghostly lacing that is retained. 4/5 The aroma is definitely dark with notes of heavily toasted wheat bread, coffee, and dark chocolate, along with some grassy hops thrown in. Undertones of wood and char come through lightly. Overall the aroma is fairly muted. 3.5/5 The flavor is definitely not muted with both caramel and molasses leading the way. Toasted wheat bread, char, and tobacco make up the middle of the flavor profile with grassy hops providing a moderately bitter finish that lingers lightly after swallowing. It is somewhat grainy overall, despite the sweetness and hop bitterness. 4/5 This is a medium bodied beer that shows off a light carbonation burn up front before transitioning to a light dryness that lingers upon wallowing. 4/5 This is a very tasty and balanced Schwarzbier with flavors that are nicely balanced and complementary. Unfortunately, the aroma is quite muted, but luckily the flavor makes up for that. I would definitely come back to this one. 4/5
