2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s Portsmouth, NH. Dark brown color. Aroma is a pleasant mix chocolate malt and toffee. Body and flavor is on the thin side. Yet no problems at all. Taste is mild chocolate, hints of nuts and sugar. Well… overall if you what cheap beer that is not harsh, this is ok. This will not get anyone excited but for sure drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black Toad Ale has a medium, cream-colored head, a dark brown (ruby, under direct light) appearance, and some splotchy bits of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted barley and brown bread crust, and the taste is the same, with some underlying caramel and mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Black Toad Ale finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a very good, sweet ale. RJT

12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s. Dark brown color, clear. Small head, fades down to nothing. Malty-sweet medium aroma. Burned malt taste, somewhat dry, lots of linger. Good value for a buck.

Pours a light brownish amber color with a small dissipating head. Nose is malty with slight hints of espresso. Taste is sweet with predominance of roasted malt. Finish is sweet as well with lingering malt. Drinkable, but have had better brown ales. Quaff Score 6 / 10
