COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pitch black is designed as a dark beer that any beer drinker can enjoy. Although the color is black, the beer drinks smooth and finishes clean. Subtle notes of smoke and roast balanced by a gentle malt body and crisp hop finish.

On tap at beer dinner. Pours opaque black with thin off-white head. Thin roast/smokey aroma. Flavor light salt, caramel carried by light body. Dry finish. This drinks almost like a lager. I wanted a deeper flavor and more body.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a burnt tar color with a hint of eggshell foam. Hints of roasted grain, trace of stale bitter coffee but overall thin and watery. Not much body in this beer and just lacking any real focus.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Muddy brown black pour. Aroma is toasty malts, earthiness, very light herbal hops. Taste is thin watery and really earthy. This is pretty boring and missing things.

bellco33 (389) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap in sampler: Pours dark brown with a thin head. Aroma of light coffee and cocoa, and funk. Taste is light dark fruit, odd tartness that is out of place, and light cocoa. Not very good. Light to medium body.

malrubius (1865) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Growler from Joe’s. Not exactly pitch black, more of a dark dark brown with lasting small tan head. Plummy aroma with hints of cocoa and wet earth. Mildly roasted milk chocolate with plummy fruity sweetness and mild roasted bitter finish with hints of vanilla cloy on a light soft watery body. Rejected by the wife. First disappointment from this brewery.

AdamJackson (2889) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Dark brown to black. Roasty licorice. Chocolate and rice Krispy treats with rye and something else I can’t pin point. It’s good but not great

nimbleprop (5226) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Pours a transparent, deep brown (certainly not ’pitch black’) with a ring of off white head. Nose has some coffee, toast, dark malt, caramel, cracker. Flavor is sweet, caramel, toast, cream soda, malt, molasses. Everything is quite mild. Clean finish. Well balanced.

radarsock (1003) - Vermont, USA - MAR 16, 2014
$5 flight from the source. Had shared with jamesewelch. Pours a smoggy mahogany brown with which a trim off-white ringed head stood. Tastes and smells of licorice root, charcoal, coffee syrup, rust, cranberry sauce, and bubblegum. Was agreed by Jim and myself that this was indeed a unique brew.

Taster at the source. It is indeed pitch black, with a scant beige head. Aroma is toasty, smoky malt. Taste is caramel, black coffee, smoke.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Wooden hops, roasted cereals and toasted bread crumbs coalesce in this quenching dark brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-hued darkness.
-Beechwood smokiness is alluded to.
-This is very drinkable; a Lost Nation signature, it seems.
-Fruitiness is kept at a minimum, even though it works quite well to increase drinkability.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

on draft at craft beer cellar, big ans roasty adn ashy with hop bite but not much for hop flavoring. I like it however.
