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

BeernWhiskeyHQ (18) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottled: 01/15/2014 Appearance: Medium tan colored head. The body (as the name suggest) is completely black and delightfully sinister looking Nose: Heavy roast notes and cocoa- not a really powerful nose, but makes me want to take my first sip even more to find out what is underneath Palate: Very malty, coffee grounds, slightly bitter and perhaps some traditional Belgian Character to it. All of this is accompanied by a very long, persistent and extremely good finish. Very light mouthfeel and very drinkable. -BeerandWhiskeyHQ.com

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

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is dark malt with a touch of cocoa nib type chocolate. Med body or so. Flavor is earthy, dark malt and not much coffee - but a little bakers chocolate seems present. Earthy, unsweet chocolate. Not really very bitter, except for the earthiness, and Iím not getting much in the way of fruity ester. Maybe a little yeast/spice. Yeah, sort of like Iíd imagine a Schwarzbier made with Belgian yeast. Donít know why it has such a low rating, except perhaps it is very different. Iím a drinkin it all!

Black with tons of head. Smell is roast malt and coffee. Taste is dry cocoa chalky chocolate. Pretty tasty. Very drinkable. Dry and not very hopped. I like this one quite a bit.

Ratman197 (9544) - 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.

Black beer. Light in body but with a nice but boy head. The beer smells like saddle and tastes like straight leather. Its good though but may come off a little bit like a cleaner or oil to some. It has a strong bite. The finish is a little sweet. This one may go better as a candle than a beer.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is toffee, roasted malt, light Belgian yeastiness. Interesting flavor profile. Good Belgian brown. I must have had a good bottle.
