Lube? Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! Social lubrication, people coming together to unwind, is what we are talking about. This American Black Ale has a dark body, medium bitterness, balanced with West Coast hops and sweet orange peel.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2012
22oz Bottle. The pour was a very dark black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that slowly receded, down to a thin scattered film with a medium collar thus creating good sheets of streaky lacing. The aroma was a little on the mild side with a burnt grain malt, pine hops and an earthy yeast and had notes of bakers chocolate, roasted coffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a bit of licorice. The taste was a malty bitter with a note of coffee and bitter chocolate early on, progressing with a slightly bitterer hoppy taste and a light citrus peel presence with a hint of licorice towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a nice dark hoppiness that was left lying on the back of the tongue at the finish. Mouthfeel was a hair below medium in body and dry in texture with a nice mellow carbonation. Overall this was a mildly hoppy Black Ale, with just enough roastiness to create a nice smooth drinkability...

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark black with a huge billowing tan head. Leaves a sleeve of lacing down the glass. Aroma is full of roast malt and some citrusy hoppy notes. Beers is highly carbonated, foamy feeling with some bland roastiness and little hop presence. A nice aroma followed by a disappointing flavor and body.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
Det här kunde nog ha varit en riktigt bra öl om den inte hade varit för kolsyrad vilket fick ölen att upplevas som tunn och avslagen. Smaken bar kraftiga inslag av choklad, kaffe med en ton av apelsin.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
650 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a firm foamy head. Aroma of overly ripe mango, ash and grassy hops. Flavour of roasted malts, ash, overly ripe mango, grassy hops and some saltiness. Carbonation is very high and mouthfeel is foamy. Medium bodied and a roasty, quite bitter finish. Unbalanced and I really don’t like the hop profile. Carbonation is so high this actually reminds me of highly carbonated water.

65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 02/2012
Aroma is stale hops, roasted notes, some cocoa, resin, vanilla and ash. Flavour is rather ashy with some licorice, nettles, hops and wet wood. Too ashy and stale, not nice.
