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.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Black! Tan dense head. Like a smooth oatmeal stout that gradually tries to become an IPA. Not at all bad.

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2012
muddy ruby with thin off-white head. Aroma is funky, earthy, somewhat-unpleasant yeast flavor, hints of smoke and bbq. Flavor is dominated by minty hops and a burnt woody smoke that has a nifty tingly appeal. Light-medium body. medium carbonation, somewhat prickly. Weird and interesting mostly in an unpleasant way, but to some extent in a pleasant way.

reebtogi (4042) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
650ml bottle pours a dark brown almost black color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains well and leaves some thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate with some earthy hops. Taste is roasted malt bitterness with some chocolate sweetness and earthy hop bitterness with a slightly sour finish. Light to medium body and average carbonation. A decent schwarzbier which is quite easy to drink.
