A heavy black ale which went perfectly with my ciopino at Pinzone's in downtown Fairhope. Great feel; slight coffee flavor.

This is a very good example of a Cascadian Black Ale. Not to be a dick, but this isn't a black ipa, per se. Great rich and deep hop character in a very black ale kinda way. Great feel. Wonderful drinker. This is my last beer from Fairhope and I ended on a high note. Really nice. Love how it remains more subtle as opposed to a punch in the mouth.
