3 Stars Ebony & Ivory hits the notes to make for an excellent ale. Chocolate and malt aroma coming from this dark brown pour with a decent tan head. Chocolate flavors dominate with some coffee and vanilla notes. The higher ABV smooths out this delicious brew without emparting an alcohol bite. Ebony & Ivory is a treat to be had.
