The brewmaster's pet. This rich and complex black beer has a smooth, deep, roasted flavor. The chocolatey-coffee finish in this brew comes from a mix of crystal, black, and chocolate malts.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
On tap @ Silver Peak. Just about black in color with a tan head. Nose is quite heavy on the ash and roasted nuts. Some coffee, burnt sugar, and a lot of dark fruits. Just a general, sugary sweetness to the flavor. A lot of ash and roast, too. Some coffee grounds, cocoa, and ash. Decent enough, but a lot of sweetness.

Dark brown-black body with a medium to thin light tan head and spotty lacing. Roast, light caramel, chocolate, and almost a cinnamon like spice. Medium bodied with moderate to lively carbonation, semi-dry throughout, slightly muddled finish.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 "this one can hold it’s own with Great Basin’s porter, but i still prefer GB’s. nice aroma of coffee and chocolate malt, less than full mouthfeel with more of the same in the flavor as the nose. their #2regular brew."

Comes out of the tap an opaque, warm, chocolaty sable with a thick light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Smoky aroma is downright ambrosial, with mocha and burnt hops notes. Delicious flavor has notes of smoked wood, quality coffee, chocolate and molasses. Firm body has good fizz and a lip-smacking fizzy and smoky finish.

A - Served a dark brown-black color with a finger of tan-brown frothy head. The head slowly fades leaving behind some thick lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of chocolate malts and roasted coffee. There is also a touch of milk sweetness and hops. T - Starts off with roasted chocolate malts and a bit of coffee flavor. The is a bit of background hops noticeable. Through the middle a bit of lactate sweetness alongside some more roasted flavors come through. The finish is roasted and slightly sweet and lingers. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels smooth and just a bit creamy. The finish is slightly dry and roasted. D - Very drinkable. Nice balance of roasted chocolate and coffee flavors. The touch of hops that I tasted was a nice addition.

[Tap] Dark brown in color with a small amount of light brown head to it. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and a general malt roast. Cocoa, charred malts, vanilla and mild anise all come out in the flavor. Creamy texture with slightly above average mouthfeel. Nice looking lacing on the glass. Sweet molasses finish. There was more flavor to this compared to many others in the sampler.

On tap at the brewery. Poured a very dark brown with a medium head. Lots of roasted malts, coffee, and some chocolate in the flavor. Medium-bodied, mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side but very solid in general. Glad to have a good beer to start off a weekend of skiing.
