BEER INFO

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

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.

From tasting notes 10/15/17
Had on-tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Big Rapids, MI

Appearance - Served in a tall 20oz pilsner glass, black with cola brown edging. Thin, broken layer of suds. Broken webbing makes up the lacing.

Smell - Aroma is light roast with a hint of caramel.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mild roast upfront before a bit of caramel sweetness. Faint trace of raisin and chocolate join the finish as the roast fades. Slightly stale character in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with light carbonation. Drinks easy enough with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - A fair black ale. The flavor leaves a bit to be desired, but it drinks well enough.

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.
