Tap at Silver Creek. Brown-black, thick steady beige head. Smooth amber chocolate aroma. Medium bodied, mellow chocolate malty taste. Mild bitterness, well balanced. Rather true to style. albeit a little more chocolaty, sort of like a true mild meets a US ESB. A pretty solid, sessionable offering.

Tap at Sugar Maple. The beer pours to a black body with a super creamy dense looking tan head. Like it was a Boddington’s pour or Guinness. I was skeptical about a black ESB because I don’t so much care for most Black IPAs. BUT, this worked really well. Smooth roasty malts countered by the traditional ESB flavors. Lots of English hops and a creamy mouthfeel. The body was light and refreshing and the carbonation significant enough to add to the experience. I liked this one a lot.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2011
On tap at Silver Creek brewpub. Black with mahogany lowlights and a thin tan head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, mild chocolate, dark malts and light fruit. Taste is pretty mild with dark malts, light chocolate and light fruit. A touch over carbonated with a light off-finish. Not bad, just very mild and not very ESBish.

On tap at brewery for Milwaukee Beer Week. Very deep black, opaque. Roasted malts and light fruit. Flavor is subtle roasted malts and finishes with a light hoppiness and fruit esters. Very smooth and fairly light on the palate despite the appearance. Very slight residual roast.
