We craft our S1NIST0R BLACK ALE using a special German dehusked black malt that is free of astringency, giving the beer a rich black color without the traditional dark beer characteristics. You will notice subtle hints of chocolate with an easy drinking balance on the back end. In the glass the dark color may look intimidating to some, but don’t let this beer fool you. Our unique combination of malts creates a very light body and smooth finish.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting, Sept 14, 2013 - Pours dark amber-brown with a light brown head. It has a dark roast malt aroma and flavor. Bubbly on the palate, it seems like a mild tasting brew for the style but it’s okay.

MartinT (8396) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Roasted malts and fruity edges delve into light acidity and bitterness for a drinkable but forgettable concoction.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A steady sheet of foam covers the blackened mahogany.
-This is not a Schwarzbier at all...
-Hop bitterness balances out the roasted malts in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is a little roasty and toasty, and has some slight bitter elements coming off it. Taste is roasty and a little bitter with a slightly sour finish and a bit of earthiness on there. Meh.

poisoneddwarf (1907) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bomber bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Aroma consists of dough, toast, dark fruit, roasty coffee, wet river rock. Pours black but has red highlights in the light; has a medium beige head with decent retention. Taste is sweet, finishing dry. Roasty flavors backed by faint hoppy citrus. Creamy mouthfeel with a medium body. More like a faintly hoppy schwarzbier than a black IPA.

Davhgbrew (947) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 Thin palate. Little toasty flavor and actually mild hop presence. Unpleasant flavor of adjunct ingredients. By far my least favorite black up a so far...Orig rating 11/24/13...2.6. Well its funny how a 2nd try can change your perception. I dnt remember having this beer the 1st time, but this time I dnt agree w/ my initial impression. This brew is toasty and dark, light to med bodied with nice body throughout. Nice coffee flavor and bittersweet baking chocolate. No alcohol flavors present.
