COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roasty, slightly sweet, light bodied black beer, 5.5% ABV and 19 IBUs. For sometime, this has been our ’dark horse’ beer. Many people have had a chance to try our earlier versions of this beer, but our current batch is one of the best. This beer is making its official debut at the Eat Real Festival in Oakland and will then be on tap wherever Linden St. beers are to be found.

A nice sessionable brew, if you’re looking to drink in volume. Almost black with thin persistent white head. Roasty, smoky notes on the nose. Smooth malt sweetness with a roasted malt kick to prevent cloying. Some caramel. Pretty good for the style, but a bit thin.
