COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, malty beast of a beer that exemplifies the way we roll here at Drake’s. Two-row malt is blended with Chocolate malt, roasted barley, and dark Crystal malts to make up the grist. Only one hop addition, Columbus, is added for bittering, allowing the abundance of malt in this beer to shine through. Enjoy the dense brownish head, the silky maltiness, and flavors of licorice, coffee and chocolate, rounded out with a slightly dry finish. here’s to those who don’t fear the mighty!

Drakes is one of the best when it comes to the dark beer categories. Dense black color with a light brown fluffy head. Black licorice, burnt sugar, semi-sweet cocoa, mild roast coffee, and rich caramel aromatic and flavor notes clash in absolute harmonic bliss.

Looks magnificent. Smell is roasty, a tad sweet and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is really quite good. Thick and chewy but not at oil levels. Really quite good stuff.

Smells and looks great. This is pretty tasty. Not too thick or heavy, and with a nice amount of hops in the finish. A good beer from a great style.
