[ As Lakewood Goatman ].
Clear dark brown color with a small to average, fizzy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, dark malt, moderate hoppy, grapefruit, spicy notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, salty licorice, dark malt, hoppy. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. IMO. maybe a bit more like a Black IPA !

Bottle:   That’s pretty black.   Pithy citrus peel up front.   Flavors of black malt, soft roastiness, citrus peel and pith, some dank hoppiness.   Gets a bit brighter on the back.   Very unique and interesting, Black IPA with the smoothness of a lager.   Roasty backside, but with a sweet citrus peel.   Might say its more of a Black IPA than a Schwarzbier, but nonetheless its interesting.   Warming but not alcoholic.   Just noticed this was 9.3%, wow.   Very dark pithy finish.   Pretty tasty!   Thanks Bill!

Kind of tastes like a forest fire, in a good way. Pine and smoke and chocolate (left behind by the campers making s’mores who started the forest fire in the first place, no doubt).

It poured a pitch black color with a tan head. The aroma was of pine, citrus and hints of dark chocolate. The taste was hoppy with hints of lager and chocolate. It was medium-bodied with a slick texture and smooth carbonation. Good stuff. Thanks Johnny!
