BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Arcadia Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
arcadiaales.com

Style: American Black Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Massive in every way, B-Craft delivers a complex bundle of flavors with citrus-hop aroma. Moving beyond the massive hop aroma, rich roasted malt flavors of coffee and chocolate move forward only to be checked by an impressive hop bitterness. Texture and flavor dance together so seamlessly that you may need to remind yourself that, while it drinks like a session, it delivers like an assassin.

On tap. Black in color and opaque. Smell is sweet raisin and roasted malts. Taste is a sharp bitter up front then roasty malts and some coffee. Feel is light, carb low. Abv well hidden. Overall decent effort
