2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark, like the thick coat of a black bear. Roasty malt nose, bit dirty. sweet on the tongue, soft on the palate. slight blackberry at the back of the swale... Could be my mind playing tricks though, perhaps I just want it to be complex and unique. Its far bettter then their pilsner offering.

355 ml can as Bear Brewing Company Black Bear Ale purchased down the street from the brewery at a private liquor store. Clear deep red copper, smaller firm tan head lasts. Fruity mild ale aroma. Sweet-ish toasted caramel malt taste, light berry fruitiness. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Good sessional mild ale, nice to see they are still making this. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

341ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate with some roasted grains and mild hops. Taste is chocolate sweetness with a bit of roasty bitterness and some mild hops in the mix. Light bodied with some decent carbonation. A very well done mild ale that was quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Inviting nose. Dark roasted malts and copper hops. A touch on the dry side throughout the palate, but the beer does state itself as a mild english dark. Some nice cocao butter near the finish. Mild, yes...but well balanced and nothing to turn one away.
