As the cold weather hits WNY, we look forward to the seasonal release of heartier brews. To celebrate this time of the year, the CB’s brewers offer you Black Jack, an Oatmeal Cream stout with a whip of real licorice for a special twist. This stout is balanced toward the malt side with the addition of oats and milk sugar for a super silky body and real licorice root for a smooth, mellow finish. A rich, dark brew for the cooler months that won’t leave you out in the cold.

Aroma is fig, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light tart. Taste is right roasted and toasty malts, caramel, chocolate, licorice and dark sugar. Light tartiness on tip. Well balanced and smooth finishing overall. Appearance is black with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

A black beer with an off-white head. The beer is low on aroma but the body is medium with a thick licorice flavor. Tastes like a tootsie roll without the coco nibs. A decent off category stout.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. This one had to follow 12.12.12, a beer I loved, and it still stood up well on its own. Yes, the licorice dominates, both in smell and taste, but still that is not all there is to this, standard toasted malt notes. A nice session stout.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. Pours black with a small tan head that recedes steadily. String lacing on the glass. Aroma of anise and malt. Medium body with a strong black licorice character along with some malt and coffee notes. The finish is all licorice. This is likely a love it or hate it beer, and being a fan of licorice I really enjoyed it.
