This enigmatic ale is a surprise for the senses, with its black color hinting at roasted malt and coffee notes, but its big hop character really stealing the show. Packed with citrusy and piney American hops for a big flavor and clean bitterness, this brew will keep you on your toes through to the last sip.

Narnad (1513) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Pours a dark brown/black in color with deep ruby highlights and a creamy tan head. Aroma is very complex with a solid hops nose composed of a spruce pine presence and a strong lemon citrus followed by a lighter orange citrus note. Malt provides a sweet caramel malt backbone with some light toastedness and stronger coffee and roasted malt presence. Coffee, light anise, some raisin and a touch of chocolate start the beer off with a lighter pine note in the middle and a mild citrus orange ending. Body is modest with a smooth feeling and a slight dryness imparted from the roasted malts. Good beer but there are a lot of aromas and flavors going on in the beer. Makes it enjoyable but a bit too much.

12 oz bottle: Pours a very dark brown, almost black; thick tan head. Aroma is mellow with chocolate malt, some coffee and a little bit of citrus hops. Taste is excellent. Nice dark brown malty goodness with incredible citrus and piney hop to balance. Nice and complex, easy to drink. I really like this one.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma had dark malt with a little bit of the hops. More of that in the flavor with a bit more of the hops coming thru. Not bad.
