Newcastle Cabbie is brewed with dark malts and noble aroma hops to create a flavour with hints of chocolate, coffee and light fruit.

Ron (2684) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Roasty aroma with chocolate and subtle coffee and hop notes. Pours brown with a good beige head and great lacing. Roasted barley with notes of chocolate and coffee. Finishes smooth and dry with kind of a watery finish. Not for me again..

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2014
bottle - Pours clear, dark red with a tense light tan head. There’s a mild roast malt aroma. The flavor is roast malt with maybe a hint of coffee and a lingering roasty finish. Medium bodied. Drinkable. It’s okay, better than some of this brewery’s recent efforts.

Mibeersnob (50) - Howell, Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2014
Left much to be desire. Very thin in the pour. Great anticipation, but let down with everything. This black ale is lacking character. Not a rich, deep dark ale, but rather thin. Taste is nondescript. A bit earthy, somewhat crisp. Unfortunately, I purchased a 6-pack. Had difficulty getting them down. Not worthy of pouring into sink, but close.

mansquito (3555) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 26, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC ($1.95): Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is malty chocolate, some sugar, and a hint of fruitiness. Taste is slightly sweet and quite malty. Easy to drink and certainly inoffensive. Not bad at all.

This black ale has a great flavor and kick. My local beer warehouse has a bunch of it at a great discount - lucky for me.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Appearance: Clear ruby brown. No lacing. Any head it has is fizzled away in moments. Smell: Cheap roasted malt. Grainy and quite sweet. Has a lot of "red" qualities to it. Simple. Reasonable. Decent at best. Taste: More of the same. Very thin as well. Moderate carbonation. Not a lot of flavor here. Mildly roasty grains with sweetness, and a tinge of artificial sweetness at the end. About what I’d expect. Not a beer I bought, or would have ever wanted to buy for myself, because it tastes just as I figured it would -- quite mediocre. Pretty much the very definition of an A-OK beer.

drostj (105) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a faint head. Rich, slightly sweet aroma of roasted malt and caramel. A bit thin tasting at first, but that is followed by nice flavors of coffee, malt and caramel; some sweetness but a slightly bitter aftertaste keeps it from being cloying. Nice effervescent feel, and not heavy as I expected a black ale to be. Pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste.

4/15/2014. 12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate, dark malt and fruity aromas. A bit metallic flavors, but malt eventually show through. Malt, caramel and chocolate.

Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
POurs a cola color with a minor coffe and chocolate aroma. Taste is simple, light and refreshing. Notes of faint coco mixed with clean malt flavor. An easy drinking beer that has a light fruit and sweetness flavor on the palate. No distinct aftertaste.
