COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Rhino is an earthy ale with hints of coffee and cocoa that pours as dark as the name we gave it. Donít let the name fool you. This dark ale is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking. It pairs well with salty appetizers, bold musky cheeses, and wild game dishes

glennmastrange (2400) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Dark roasted and bready malts, light herbal and earthy hops and yeast. Head is average size, light beige, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts and finishes lightly acidic with a touch of bitter in the finish. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. An easy drinking beer, just nothing outstanding in this Belgian Ale.

Draft at the growler NYC . Pours a deep blackish purple color with no head. Malty sweet flavor with kind of artificial taste. Ok

Aromas of chocolate, booze, and faint fruits. Body is murky black/ brown tinged, the head quickly dissipated into nothing. Flavor is belgian yeasts with slightly toasted malts, with a alcohol finish. Overall its decent enough.

750ml bottle c/o Elise shared at GTMW ticket line 2014. Unfiltered black-brown body. Foamy beige head. Medium bodied, roastier than most Belgians. Nice fluffy carbonation. Sort of like a Dunkel, belgified. Sweet and easy, rich, nice depth. Classic, well done.

Pours pitch black from bottle with tons of head. Smells smokey and a bit chocolatey. Med/light mouth feel with lots of carbonation. Taste is roasted goodness with flavors of chocolate and chicory. Sweetness and a little hop as well.

Surprised by the ratings below I thought this was a very solid beer. Pours very black with a nice lacy head. Aroma is somewhat subdued not as roasts as I would expect. Taste is very well-balanced rich toasty coffee chocolate. Very complex for a session strength beer. Finishes refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour, minimal head. Nose is heavy roasted grain. Little sweet. Middle is coco. Finish comes in dry and roasty. Not bad.

I thought this was better than the average rating indicated. However, I was somewhat surprised that it was classified under Belgian ale. This was almost like a mix between a schwarzbier and a Belgian. Faint caramel malt aroma. Dark brown color with a sustainable head. The palate was actually favorable with a weight and solidness I enjoyed. Flavors were subdued with caramel and burnt sugar flavors. A certain roasted character also came out with a hint of Belgian yeast. Not a great beer but better than expected. This was batch 5 and from what I understand the original releases left a lot to be desired. Hereís to getting better at your craft.
