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.

Growler. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roasted malt, chocolate, wood. Medium mouth feel, similar flavors to nose, very sweet, light vanilla, good.

Steve_0 (3270) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at the Brewery. Pour is deep brown with a big khaki colored head and great lacing. Roasty, cocoa, graham crackers, marshmallow, some caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is cocoa, coffee, somewhat earthy, lightly grassy, brown sugar, light cinnamon and bread. Medium body with medium carbonation. Solid stout, but could use some more body.

On tap at brewpub. A ruby reddish black with a short lived white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roast. Flavor is roast, coffee. Finish is dry, coffee bitterness. Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Flavorful, but lacking in body and complexity.

Part of a flight at the taproom. Notes just say surprisingly sweet without being cloying. Not crazy about nitro beers usually, but this one was very pleasant.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
On tap. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, light oatmeal. Taste is very smooth and the flavors are there. I was expecting the roastiness to hit me in the face a bit more but it was well-balanced.
