COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We borrowed our Venus (white) yeast to make this malty ale with hints of bakers’ chocolate and traditional orange peel. We simply call this high gravity beer the Dark White.

Tap. Dark amber color. Aroma of alcohol and yeasty bready goodness. A hint of citrus and a bit of clove. Very dry, strong and lots of bread. Nice clove flavor as well. Very spicy. A good bit of pepper. Best on of 5SW so far!

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Appearance: Delivered by our ginger waitress a solid, chestnut brown body with a full inch of light tan-colored head. Smell: Earthy, chocolaty nose with some supporting, secondary hints of pureed figs, dry caramel, orangey citrus, and spicy cloves. Taste: Roasty, toasty bread crusts coated in a thin layer of unsweetened chocolate and caramel. Slight fig fruitiness. Fairly earthy and spicy throughout with a big kick of cloves. Hint of dehydrated orange peel. Herbaceous, spicy bitterness furthered along by the moderate malt roastiness. Spicy, drying finish with a lingering hint of baker’s chocolate. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Drinkability: Certainly worth a try. A fairly interesting beer that held my attention for the two glasses.

On tap at Westside served in a snifter. The aroma is slightly wild yeast but mostly cocoa sweetness. The cocoa comes through to the texture and adds some nice complexity. This has some decent malt body but I’m not picking up much of the orange peel if any. Grab this if you are interested in a malty, slightly sweet, easy to drink beer.
