COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blind Spot - Dark Specialty Ale: Blind Spot is ideal for the colder months, but perfectly enjoyable any time of the year. Fermented with a traditional English yeast. Wonderfully robust, full-bodied with a rich and warming finish. We have added a light dosing of dried ginger, cardamon, grain of paradise and star anise to the whirpool for some enjoyable spicing.

Fatehunter (1220) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Poured a thin head on a black colored body. Well, the ginger comes through strong in the smell. The cardamon and the roasted malt are there too. The taste is roasted malt at first and then the spices take off with the rest of the profile. The texture is smooth with a crispiness and moderate carbonation. The does not do it for me. The smell is way off and the taste has to many spices.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. A very dark brown beer, topped by a creamy, light tan head of moderate size. The aroma has a light spiced touch, some licorice and roasted malts, and a good dash of chocolate and treacle. Dark sugar too. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, soft and almost sticky sweet on the palate, Lasting finish with licorice, treacle, chocolate and spices. Not sure about this one. Sure, it’s nice, but perhaps too sweet. Well, it’s nice. 140815

Svart med lys brunt tykt lavt skum. Brent sjokolademalt, mørke bær, gjær, alkohol, kakao, mye på gang her. Noe bær også. Smaken er overraskende rund og fin. Fruktsmaker og bær, tørket frukt. Syrlig lett bitter avslutning.

tomekk1978 (477) - POLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, wręcz nieprzejrzysta (pod światło rubinowa). Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, znikoma i szybko opadająca. Aromat: alkohol, owoce suszone, wino jabłkkowe, potem ciemne słody i czekolada. Smak: słodki, alkoholowy, owocowy, nieco winny, ale i z wyraźnym akcentem czekoladowym i rozgrzewająca końcówką. Dość mocne i złożone piw. wyraźnie alkoholowy czy wręcz winny aromat nie przeszkadza. Kolejne conajmniej solidne piwo z High Water.
