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 donít 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

#563 (Reggie Jackson) Iíve had this on draft at Sassyís as well as Cassidyís and impressed both times. Mucho strong flavor, roasty and chocolatey. Thick.

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent reddish sable with a nice pale tan head that leaves behind substantial lacing. Aroma is smoky and malty with a coffee tone and some subtle nuttiness. Smoky roast coffee flavor has nutty, caramel and toffee hints. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, rather pleasing.

A fantastic entry to the black beer market: a nearly perfect blend of chocolate, roasted, and coffee notes with an easy finishing body. Hops balance doesn't steal the show from the roast malt nuances that make this one a standout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very fine beer indeed. I also sampled it at the spring beer and wine fest in Portland. It was in fact the only beer which I felt warranted second and third return visits. Shining star indeed, I canít wait for itís debut at belmont station next month.

I tried nearly everything at Fanno Creek Nano Brewfest, and this was one of only 3 that I would buy again. Very smooth, well balanced and mildly flavored. I plan to sit down with a full pint of it sometime soon.

DalzAle (1977) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle via trade. Dark brown pour, little carbonation and a nice dry subtle black cherry nose. Flavor was initially some dark chocolate, malt, hops and slightly creamy and smoky on the finish. Wasnít sure what to expect with this one, but really enjoyed it. Paired extremely well with my steak tonight.

Great beer on draft..this is a black ale..this is probably what Fat Tire could be. Super caramel and coffee, toast and biscuits without the flat bitterness of stouts, great spike of carbonation on mid palate, pretty crisp finish playing off the carbonation..tap is WAY better than bottle
