I donít understand who wants to drink a black ale on black ash? Answer only tickers such as myself... poured dark black from the bottle with aromas of ash, roast earth and some malt. Flavors are the same ash and smoke are big on the flavors I do not understand this style or this beer. I would never drink this again.

Comes out of the bottle a deep sable just a fleaís eyebrow above black with a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Aroma is seriously smoky - maybe a little too much so, though I love smoky beers. Flavor has a strong burnt malty overtone plus hints of roast quality coffee and roast malt, and a snip of licorice. Texture is thick, fizzy and smooth. OK, like drinking liquid ashes, but I like that! Hell!

Bottle. This is thick dark beast with lots of complex herbal and woody flavours. The roasted malts really shine through and there faint hint of an almost Ricola esque aftertaste - but in a good way. This beer very interesting a well crafted.

Pours a deep dark black with a thick mocha head. Aroma of smoke, licorice, sassafras, char, smoke and leather. Taste is smoke, dark chocolate, licorice, sassafras, mint, herbal notes and hickory smoke. Thick and viscous, especially for a lager. This is one of the most interesting, complex beers Iíve ever had. I could not drink this all the time but wow, this is such a cool beer.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle from New Leaf. Black pour with a creamy tan head. Very interesting aroma of tanned leather, wood charcoal, dry black malt, smoke with light chocolate. Smooth light body, ashes, smoke, wet leather, chocolate, licorice and black malt. Insanely complex and interesting. Never tasted anything like this before. So good.

Bottle shared thanks to kantrauch! Pours a dark brownish black with bubbly tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma is heavy on the wood, ash I guess, roastiness on the back end. Taste is peppery wood and vegital crispness, heavy roast on the back end. Interesting, heavy on the wood, ashy aftertaste, but overall itís great stuff, wow.
