COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black Rhino is an earthy ale with hints of coffee and cocoa that pours as dark as the name we gave it. Donít 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

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2012
I had high hopes for this beer. I like the brewery and I liked the beerís name but alas this was not an enjoyable brew. First of it had so much foam we had to wait forever just to get sample. The taste is iodine, creosol and just plain nasty. Overall, yuck!

onceblind (8211) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Clear dark amber brown with a light tan rocky head thatís quite large in size. Rustic earthy nose of roasted black malt, old gymnasium, stale coffee and a earthy bitterness. Smooth but roasty and rustic flavor with dark semistale coffee grounds, Belgian esters, black malt acridity, and bitter dark cocoa. Just kinda okay. Gets a little tastier as it warms.

solidfunk (8064) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2016
A hot mess like spilled poutine. Dark brown pour with big mocha head and lacing. Some caramel and unfermented sugar. Sone booze. Tangy finish with hint of florals. Tap at airport.

OldMrCrow (2427) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Gotta say I really donít get the hate for this one. Dark pour, mild smoke to make things interesting atop the mellow dark-roast character. Almost like a gentle smoked beer; I quite like it. Chocolate and sweetness is fairly background, and itís low abv contributes to an easy drinkability.

Fatehunter (2413) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is lots of licorice, anise, some roasted malt and chocolate in the background. The taste has a nice roasty character, a little bitter dark chocolate. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Enjoyable.

glennmastrange (2745) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Dark roasted and bready malts, light herbal and earthy hops and yeast. Head is average size, light beige, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts and finishes lightly acidic with a touch of bitter in the finish. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. An easy drinking beer, just nothing outstanding in this Belgian Ale.

BrewBoxer (2613) - New York, New York, USA - APR 12, 2015
Draft at the growler NYC . Pours a deep blackish purple color with no head. Malty sweet flavor with kind of artificial taste. Ok

BeerRenter76 (862) - Texas, USA - APR 9, 2015
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.
