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.

bytemesis (2576) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Tap. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is strong coffee and dark roasted malts. Flavor is about the same, with notes of vanilla and molasses. Medium sweet, lightly bitter on the finish, and a light citric astringence. Body is medium to full. Nice beer.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Truly a pitch black body, a few fingers of fluffy khaki head recede to a thin cap that goes on to retain from start to finish. Loads of fresh oatmeal, milk chocolate, some faint dry flaky hops, fresh cream, some brown ale characteristics. Super smooth and velvety, oatmeal, slightly bitter chocolate... incredibly smooth and easy to drink. I think this growler’s gettin’ kicked tonight no problem.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Some pulls from my wife’s two pints at Town Hall. This one pours a dark brown with a finger of beige head that dissipates into a film and ring. Notes of roasted malts, chocolate, oats, cream, caramel, toasted nuts, vanilla, and toast. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Roasty, sweet, and right to style.

On tap as part of the sampler tray. My first taste if town hall beer. Coffee flavour. Bit too cold for a stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Growler to glass. Pours dark brown black with a quick khaki head that dissipates to a thin ring around glass. Aroma has roasted malt and cereal with a touch of soy. Taste is bitter roasted malt and black coffee with some cereal and soy or faint peat and prune flavors. Palate is full and slick with a dry finish.

On tap at Town Hall Brewery. Good mild chocolate and sweet roast aroma. Black. Mild creamy chocolate flavors; some balance in mid palate; final peters out rather quickly. Smooth, medium body, and a bit fizzy. Okay. Tasty. but nothing special.
