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.

Growler, courtesy JW77. The pour yields a dark chocolate brown body with a small, foamy, light brown head. Patchy sheets of lacing cling to the glass. The nose is simple but well executed, notes of bittersweet chocolate, burnt caramel, and coffee all smoothed and drawn together by roasted oats. Flavors are largely the same, displaying a nice balance between the same sweet points in the chocolate-caramel profile, and the roastiness of the coffee with the earthen hops. The creamy oats are the glue that binds everything together and keeps things smooth. Medium bodied and silky, the palate is balanced but lacking a bit in substance. Overall, a fine, tasty, sessionable stout. Good stuff.

June 15, 2009 on tap at brew pub. Pours very dark with minimal head. Aroma of roasted malt/chocolate/oats and hint of vanilla. Smooth, thin with good balance. Easy to drink and leaving you wanting another one. Nice stout!

On tap @ brewery. Black water...the name someone matches my experience. Appearance is ebony with just the slightest splinters of mahogany around the edges when held to the light. Tight and creamy latte head produced a number of small ringlets. Flavor and aroma of burnt malt, cocoa, coffee, oat, and vanilla. Also has a slightly lactic/sour quality. Palate is surprisingly thin...a bit more body would have improved this significantly.

Pretty good stout! Pours black with very little tan head. Notes of smoke, and chocolate. Aroma is roastiness. Sweet, but not cloying. Dry finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Tap at brewpub. Pours a deep black with a chalky chocolate with a slight hint of smoke. Flavor is molasses-infused chocolate. Average mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

Draft: pours dark black, burnt coffee, chocoalte, malt aroma, taste is a bit like sour coffee with some malt backbone, fairly thin mouthfeel for a stout which is always disappointing to me. Still, this was the best thing I had while at Town Hall.
