For this latest seasonal release we decided to get adventurous and add Carafa III to our malt bill. This black malt is one of the mellowest, without the over-the-top roasty bitterness that you find dominanting most black barleys.

Medium brown with big protein(?) chunks. Citrusy, toasty aroma with a little bit of chocolate. Very bitter...bitter hop, bitter chocolate, roast. This has to be the most assertive example of this I’ve ever had. Well, I’m down.

500mL can, pours black with a medium beige head. Nose brings out bold roasted malt, some espresso, and piney hops. Flavour is very dry and bitter, bringing out roasty malt bitterness upfront, followed by piney hops. No residual sweetness at all, with quite a pronounced astringency. Very solid black IPA.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom. Astoria..bonus Goonies points. Hell, Kindergarten cop wasn’t terrible. Not Goonies good, but not terrible. Arnold was pretty likeable in that movie. Pours a nearly black color with a medium off-white head. A big sweet roasted coffee and pine hop nose. The flavor is more coffee, with big bitterness, some light fruit, but more solid bitter hops balanced by sweet malt and coffee. Toasty. Good.

12-oz can. Thanks m! Pours black with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of lace. Big sweet grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty dark ashy mid palate with a bright grapefruity overtone. Great combination. Long crisp finish.

Can:   Deep brown, dirty, muddy, sediment floats about, moderate frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Roast, hop bitterness, , and a little campfire on the nose.   Citrus pith and peel up front, not as roasty as the nose suggested.   Very soft roasted malts otherwise.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lighter example, light finish, moreso a Black Pale Ale me thinks.

Merci à McBerko pour la cannette! Chocolat amer, esspresso, caramel chaud et noix de coco assailli par un coulis résineux très vert et des agrumes pales très amères et sèches. La façon que les saveurs sont acheminés et la souplesse du corps en font un bête de buvabilité féroce.

Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is a lot more on the IPA end of the spectrum than the roasty end. I get a lot of floral elements with just a bit of citrus, and only a hint of roasting in there. Taste had a lot more of the roastiness to it, with a very healthy dose of the hoppy bitterness. Very pleasant drink.

Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured dense, blackish with a mild forming, tan head. Mild retention, nice lacing. Good hop character here, citrus with pine and earthy resins along with some charred, toasted grains, and roast. Pretty par for the style. Some light fruity yeast esters to keep things interesting too.
