Sotet vorosesbarna szine van, habja vekony es gyorsan olvad. Illata kave likoros, komlod, de edeskes. Ize sotet bogyos gyumis, szilvalekvar, kakao, meggybefott, komlo. Testes, nem tul bubis. Utoize keseredes, gyumolcsos, szaraz. Remek!

FROM NOTES: August 7, ’12 Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Spiegelau tulip. A: Roasted malts and chocolate notes dominate the aroma initially, but a strong piney, citrus hop profile reveals itself quickly. Smells fantastic. A: Pours a very dark near-black, with some brownish/ruby highlights and a tan foam head that settles to a thin cap and splotchy lacework. T: Delicate but successful balance between the hops and malts. Nice and hoppy with a fair amount of sweetness. There is also a strong amount of chocolate and roast with a equally as strong amount of hops. P: Medium in body and moderate carbonation. O: I tried to find fault with this beer, but it is excellent. The chocolate, roasty malt notes set it apart from other American Black Ales. If you like Black Ale, you MUST try this, IMO.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
On tap @ GABF. Very dark brown with a khaki head. Big herbal hop aroma. A touch vegetal, quite woody, and a bit piney. Lots of roasted malt, coffee grounds, chocolate, and some citrus peel. Bitter flavor of roasted malt, wood, herbs, and pine. Grass and orange peel hop notes, coffee grounds, and some milk chocolate sweetness. Didn’t care for this.
