COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 16, 2013
Schwarz mit voluminöser Schaumbildung. Neben verhaltener Würze kommt ein sehr aromatisches Hopfenaroma hervor. Soweit so gut. Der Antrunk ist für ne Sekunde säuerlich-würzig, dann wird es rasant bitter und zwar Richtung Kohletablette, igitt! Enttäuschend auf ganzer Linie.

From Hophead, DK. Bottled, 161112. Black with beige head. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavour with soapy note to dry grain.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
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.
