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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
In short: A soapy/perfumy and herbal-hoppy dark ale. Unpleasant mess? bad batch? bad bottle?
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh about one months after purchase
The look: Dark brown body topped by a medium tan head with medium retention
In long: Nose is very soapy/perfumy with some spicy notes. Taste was dominated by this annoying soap flavor that overwhelmed the beer. Second to the soap was a strong green herbs character. Then a bit of roast, floral notes, burnt toasts. This beer was like drinking a toasted bar of soap, I hope for Clow Shoes that this was a bad batch or I got a bottle that wasn’t properly sanitized, because that beer I drank was pretty bad. THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY BOTTLE!!! And btw, how did people express their frustrations and angers before the invention of the caps lock key?

Jet black. Little to no head. Metallic aroma. Bitter black-coffee flavors. Dry aftertaste. not very impressive at all.
