Black Rhino is an earthy ale with hints of coffee and cocoa that pours as dark as the name we gave it. Don’t let the name fool you. This dark ale is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking. It pairs well with salty appetizers, bold musky cheeses, and wild game dishes

Aromas of chocolate, booze, and faint fruits. Body is murky black/ brown tinged, the head quickly dissipated into nothing. Flavor is belgian yeasts with slightly toasted malts, with a alcohol finish. Overall its decent enough.

750ml bottle c/o Elise shared at GTMW ticket line 2014. Unfiltered black-brown body. Foamy beige head. Medium bodied, roastier than most Belgians. Nice fluffy carbonation. Sort of like a Dunkel, belgified. Sweet and easy, rich, nice depth. Classic, well done.

Bottle. Gusher. Very dark brown color, massive tan head. Aroma of burnt caramel. Taste is fruity caramel. Hmmm...

Pours pitch black from bottle with tons of head. Smells smokey and a bit chocolatey. Med/light mouth feel with lots of carbonation. Taste is roasted goodness with flavors of chocolate and chicory. Sweetness and a little hop as well.

Surprisly underrated . Black color , medium beige head . Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Balanced taste of roasted malt , caramel and earthy hops. Decent ale.

Surprised by the ratings below I thought this was a very solid beer. Pours very black with a nice lacy head. Aroma is somewhat subdued not as roasts as I would expect. Taste is very well-balanced rich toasty coffee chocolate. Very complex for a session strength beer. Finishes refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown pour, minimal head. Nose is heavy roasted grain. Little sweet. Middle is coco. Finish comes in dry and roasty. Not bad.

I thought this was better than the average rating indicated. However, I was somewhat surprised that it was classified under Belgian ale. This was almost like a mix between a schwarzbier and a Belgian. Faint caramel malt aroma. Dark brown color with a sustainable head. The palate was actually favorable with a weight and solidness I enjoyed. Flavors were subdued with caramel and burnt sugar flavors. A certain roasted character also came out with a hint of Belgian yeast. Not a great beer but better than expected. This was batch 5 and from what I understand the original releases left a lot to be desired. Here’s to getting better at your craft.

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is dark malt with a touch of cocoa nib type chocolate. Med body or so. Flavor is earthy, dark malt and not much coffee - but a little bakers chocolate seems present. Earthy, unsweet chocolate. Not really very bitter, except for the earthiness, and I’m not getting much in the way of fruity ester. Maybe a little yeast/spice. Yeah, sort of like I’d imagine a Schwarzbier made with Belgian yeast. Don’t know why it has such a low rating, except perhaps it is very different. I’m a drinkin it all!

cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bottle shared at GTMW ticket line, pours a very dark brown with a thin head, the aroma is of light chocolate with maybe a little bit of coffee poking through, the flavor is light and watery with some chocolate in the finish, not sure what to think of this one.
