COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer is over, but cheer up pretty people, it’s time for the newest installment in our Fade to Black Series. This Rye Ale boasts a deep dark brown body with an off white head. This dark brew envelopes your nose with aromas of dark coffee, maple wood and hints of dark agave nectar. The flavor is an intense evolution that starts off with nut bread flowing into molasses followed by a taste of licorice. This lands on spicy rye notes all before being washed away by earthy hop, leaving behind a slight black pepper sensation. So put away the bathing suit, pop a bottle of this black beauty and watch summer fade way.

Bottled:
Pours black with a mid sized head. Aroma is fudge, chocolate and marsh mallows. Surprisingly thin mouth feel; almost watery! Taste is quite dry and has notes of smoke, wood, fudge and some chocolate. Harsh finish. Nope, didn’t like this one! Too dry.
