COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We craft our S1NIST0R BLACK ALE using a special German dehusked black malt that is free of astringency, giving the beer a rich black color without the traditional dark beer characteristics. You will notice subtle hints of chocolate with an easy drinking balance on the back end. In the glass the dark color may look intimidating to some, but don’t let this beer fool you. Our unique combination of malts creates a very light body and smooth finish.

Barreras (1601) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Pours a dark cola color with a dark beer malt aroma. Taste is clean, crisp, dry amd simple. No distinct flavor, but light and smooth finish. Wish there was more complex flavor but a nice beer for the style.

On tap at Hop City. So tasty, the roasted flavours have a hint of chocolate but not much bitterness, great beer.

onceblind (7869) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Deep dark brownish under a thin ivory cap. Dark malty aroma with a kiss of coffee and roast. Smooth dark flavor that’s got cocoa and a little brown malt with a biscuity base and a kiss of Java. Like an aggressive schwarzbier (note-I didn’t know this was a schwarz when I was rating it).

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2016 Wonderful, but have to knock points of for being called the Sinistor. I?d expect it to be darker.

22oz bottle 9/11/16 (Plaid Pantry-Vancouver, WA)-42° in Lager Glass-Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste of the same with a bitterness and more chocolate on the back end. This medium bodied brew is darn tasty as I am not a fan of this style.

tightslice (1071) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is malts, cocoa, raisins, fruited breads. Taste is malty, cocoa, bready. A pretty pleasant and accurate take on a Schwarzbier....maybe a little mild but still good.

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2016
Sample at Tap House Grill. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium foamy beige head that recedes gradually to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, burnt coffee, chocolate and a bit of earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a malty aftertaste.
