For all of you dark beer lovers out there, we present this smooth, full-bodied black beer with a clean, crisp finish. The malt is truly the star of this brew— a highly roasted malt and a dark crystal malt give it a unique roasted flavor of creamy smoothness. How did we balance this huge malt flavor? We blended American and German Hops!
Brewed with Pale, Chocolate, and Dark Crystal malts. Hopped with American and German hops.

One word: coffee. Not my kind of beer, the very dark coffee taste is the centerpiece of this.

Dark brown and clear with a quickly disappating light brown head. Roasted malt, caramel, and nutty aromas. Hoppy bitterness upfront and on the finish. Not bad. Actually better than I expected.
