This mutt of a beer is truly unique, just like its name’s origin. Cara de Luna comes from a childhood nickname that founder Marisa’s dad came up with to describe her incredibly round and full face. The phrase is Spanish for "Face of the Moon." We take German hops, Belgian Malt, and American yeast to make this Black German Pale Ale. A light mouthfeel lends itself to the soft maltiness and distinct smooth hop character. Leaving convention behind, this beer paves its own path....just like Marisa and her big ol’ face.

jgb9348 (5722) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice, three centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, oatmeal, alcohol, cherries, lactose and a little bit of alcohol. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rich malty flavour with some oatmeal, cherries, milk, grain and alcohol all noticeable and a smooth coffee flavour near the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of chocolate ranging from very light milk chocolate to some darker notes, but some mellow alcohol flavours and a bit of heavy oats near the end as well. Overall, a good and smooth beer, full of flavour and more importantly - full of character and body, nice to try and well worth finding if you can get this and have had a lot of lighter beers and IPAs! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Cash Wise Liqours in Minot, North Dakota on 04-October-2016 for US$10,99/six pack sampled at my hotel room here in Morrisville, Pennsylvania on 14-Occtober-2016.

Pretty good malty ale. Sweet caramel, some nuttiness, mild bitter finish. Doesn't stand out but tasty.

This is a nice representation of an old style. Dark cola color. Some lacing. Just a little smoke and a clean fonish

Bill Becker (819) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Pours a black with reddish hues, small tannish head of foam. The smell has a little bit of roasted malt, a hint of chocolate. .not much really going on here. Same goes for the taste. Light flavours all around but it is still a decent beer. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Not a bad Black Ale. On draught at the Wonder Bar.

Tap at JL Beers. Dark brown pour with a dense creamy head. Aroma is black olives, light roasted malt. Medium to lighter palate. I’m getting more olive on taste with a hint of chocolate. Odd beer.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Bottle Revolution. It pours a deep black color with a very slight head. Molasses and dark malt nose. Roasty on the tongue with a bit of earthy hops and a little molasses sweetness. Full bodied and slightly oily on the tongue. I was expecting something akin to a black IPA, but it’s definitely closer to a porter.

ARH (1118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On tap, poured into a footed pilsener glass. Light aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and light fruit esters greet the nose. It pours a dark, opaque cola black with a tan, foamy head that reduces to a medium sudsy ring with light surface specks. There’s a light sheet layer of lace. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter, nothing too strong. The oily beer has a medium malty body with a light, fizzy carbonation. It’s earthy, and chocolatey on the mouth with a mild fruit and coffee note. A light grass finishes it off and grass and coffee grounds stick around for a short time in the light aftertaste.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear, deep brown with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Coffee, grassy, roasted malty, somewhat chocolatey, and bready aroma. Taste is cocoa nibs - not sweet - espresso, toasty, light caramel and brown sugar with a light bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Good porter.
