COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Appearance is a very dark brown color supporting a healthy dissipating head leaving nil lace. Smell of the roasted malt with slight dark chocolate and coffee. Taste of the roasted malt giving it a slight bitter astringency with a light sour note. Moutfeel is medium light with good carbonation.

BrewGoblin (569) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
Another great tasting 10 Barrel beer with a mouthfeel that wasn’t quite hitting home runs with me. This reminded me more of a Black Lager style than an ale and was quite slim in the body for that as well. It has a nice dark cocoa brown appearance, a small tan head with the smell of roast malts and coffee. Taste is similar with chocolate, wood and some mild basement dank. Just a touch too watery to really sink my tongue into.

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 (8619) - 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.

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.
