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

i think this may have been the first batch. i just put the bottle in the recycling and forgot to look. it wasnít infected, though, and didnít gush. pours brown with an enormous loose, bubbly tan head. dates, leather, roast, a little yeast, smoke? mildly sweet, lightly bitter. light body, airy feel, excessive carb. difficult to drink since each sip is mostly air. sort of like trying to drink beer foam. towards the end of the bottle all the carbonation seemed to disappear and it was like drinking really unpleasant water. not sure how that happened.

No gusher here... Thank gawd. Pours black in the glass. Kind of an industrial minty aroma like cleanser. Another rater called it like ímothballsí. I can understand that. Flavors of bitter burnt toast and not much else. Iím kind of surprised as usually Adelbertís beers are kinda tasty. It must be an infection or technical issue. Overall, Iíll try this beer again in a few months and see if it was this particular batch that was off.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pint on tap. Itís a walnut color, no head or lacing. Medium aroma, nice & malty. Mild taste to start, some nice malty characteristics in the middle, decent linger/aftertaste. Some dark fruits present. Itís a different take on a random "belgian ale", but I donít think itís my favorite. Give it a try (beware of bottles, evidently)

750 ml. caged and corked. Alcohol 6.2% per the label. Despite extensive gusher precautions, a blowout occurred. After the initial explosion, pours almost 100% beige foam, which rapidly collapses into a hazy brown (SRM25) body......nose is redolent of band-aide, with hints of malts.....taste is almost entirely band-aide phenolics ......mouth feel medium, highly astringent, carbonation makes a foamy mouthful. This is quite easily the worst commercial infection in my experience. Given the number of gushers noted I wonder about their sanitation in this batch. This bottle is awful and is a drain pour. BJCP 1/1/2/2/2

Gusher. Black pour with a khaki head. Ugh. Smells like hot dogs and pennies. Sour, metallic, and smokey. Bandaids, lemon, and grass. Unpleasant flavor of pennies, smoke, bandaids, and meat. Hot dog, ash, lemon sourness, and some grass.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2013
This is very dark brown, almost murky in appearance. Its aroma is sweet and roasted, slightly spiced and so reminds me almost of a Dunkelweizen, but with a heavier, sweeter, Belgian edge. Itís a little numb on the palate, but still offers soft, smooth, roasted flavors. Overall, itís somewhat porter-like in constitutionÖ but with a distinctive yeast character.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle - GUSHER ALERT. The Wesley beer. Black pour with a rather large sized head that took forever to settle. Yeast, roast, some spiciness, and earthy. Blah.

BigHoss (171) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2013
From a large bottle,pours a very dark brown with a large brown head. I smell dried dark fruits, yeast, and some spice. I taste the same with a bitter after taste that takes away from it, a hoppy after taste would been much better. I must I am very disappointed in this.

dyetube (1331) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle from Choice Beverages in McKinney. Pours black with a this tan head. The aromas are malt, light milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is slightly dry and roasty with a medium body and good carbonation. Cheers!

Ratman197 (11246) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2013
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of roasted malt, yeast, spice and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, roasted malt, spice, light vanilla and light yeast with a smooth lingering spiced toffee finish. Donít know how this got entered as a Altbier my bottle said Belgian Black Ale.
