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.

Tap at the brewpub in Portland. Dark brown pour with a small dense white head. Licorice, hint of molasses, yeasty late. Just okay for me.

Hmmmm. Confusing, as the label says. But nice in a willy wonka backwards way. Like appearance of a nice stout, good carbonation, nice head. And hits like one too, maybe cuz dark thick-tasting malt flavors. Delicious with ben n Jerry’s phish food. But then weird astringency n turns into more ale yeastiness

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
On tap @ 10 Barrel. Dark cola colored beer with khaki foam. Roasty and slightly floral aroma. A bit of dark fruit, some bread, and a hint of licorice. There’s a lot more sweetness on the tongue than I expected. Good roasted malt character along with a lot of bread and dough. Slight earthy and floral hops. Not bad.
