COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our strongest, darkest and most heavy regular offering. It is virtually black in color and features rich roasted malt flavor with a delicate caramel and vanilla finish. It is carbonated and served with the use of nitrogen gas, giving the Black Water a beautiful cascading pour and thick, creamy foam atop your glass. Made with only the freshest American malts and English hops.

Draught at the brewpub. Opaque black with khaki head that laced the glass. Roasted malt and anise aroma. Roasty on the tongue with chocolate and light toffee flavors. Full bodied and smooth mouth fell.

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2006
Never liked this brew, especially served on nitrogen. On cask it fares a little better but all the flavors, excepting the chocolate, taste a bit overripe, like burnt coffee and corked red wine.

pinkzambia (1473) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Tap at brewpub:Black with yellowish brown head. The aroma is burnt malts and the taste is sweet, almost a little cough syrup like. The feel is the classic thin slick feel of the oatmeal stouts. This one is really good.

undsioux7 (797) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2006

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2006

a big thanks goes to hellomynameis for this growler of beer. had this earlier this month. poured a dark brown to black with a nice sized tan head. aroma, roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, dark cherries a nice sweetness just lingers over the top of the glass. flavor the sweetness is just right for me , got chocolate covered cherries, malts, a touch of vanilla. mouthfeel was a little on the thin side that just made it a very easy drinking beer I just kept filling my glass I think I drank 3/4 of the growler in a very short period time (like 45 min.)

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2006
A very dark brew with a nice tan head. Nose is heavy on the roasty toasty malts but the is an underlying graininess that lends some depth to this.It was just a little thin for me but very enjoyable.

It was dark brown in color with a nice head. It had a nice smooth flavor with a taste of coffe. Of all the beers I tried at Town Hall, this was the one I enjoyed the most.
