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 dont let this beer fool you. Our unique combination of malts creates a very light body and smooth finish.

Fing amazing...this is one of my favorites and its hard to set yourself apart in the black ale/stout/porter ranks. This one is special. Good, mild, clean, crisp, malty, not too much anything but perfect balance. beautifula and the smoothest really

Shared from a bomber into snifters at the Royale gathering last night, thanks Blake! It poured a nearly opaque dark brown color with tan head and some lace. A good, true-to-style schwartzbier. Roasted barley and burnt toast. Nice light drinkable strength, crisp finish. Id compare it to Smithwicks, Guinness Black Lager or Black Toad.

22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a dark brown-amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, brown sugar, tobacco, and chocolate. The flavor follows the same line, with toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, tobacco, brown sugar, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Dry finish. Had back-to-back with the 10 Barrel Oregon Brown Ale, and Id give the slight edge to that one.

Bottle shared by Craigers. Pours a deep brown color with a medium off-white head. The aroma is chocolate and light malts. A smooth easy brew with some light sweet caramel malts, chocolate, clean and very light. Decent.

Black! Tan dense head. Like a smooth oatmeal stout that gradually tries to become an IPA. Not at all bad.
