COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve finalized a new Black Ale for Half Acre.

We can all sit on sun drenched patios and freely spill speed beer down our throats till paid transportation takes us home. You want to squirrel away a couple x-tra pales and head to yoga? No problem, Namaste.

But, there are times when fleshy black beer is the only thing that offers the necessary weight. Visiting your uncle’s machine shop to thread some pipe before hitting a dirt track sprint car race….? You might want to digest some Lead Feather Black Ale.

The might of big malts and rival hop use give Lead Feather capital dark properties. 6% ABV gives you time, but not at the expense of content.

Lead Feather Black Ale will live in the line up all year. You’ll find it on draft right now in our Tap Room and soon in bars around town. Come March, we’ll load it into our favorite 16 ounce aluminum vessel. Find one and work it into your life.

A pretty solid overall porter. Thick and black with a good amount of chocolatey malts, though a tad on the thin side. Tried with Brandon at the brewery in 2017 after ASEH.

Really nice blend of porter/stout and a hopped ale. Get all kinds of flavors, coffee and bitter hops. Pretty good.

akoeninger (748) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Dark ruby brown with tan head. Aroma of faint mocha coffee. Not much hops in the aroma some in the taste. Overall rather like a porter. Milky smooth and full bodied

BREWMUSKCLES (2671) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2016
looks great abv seems a bit more and the finish is long with wood and ivy. the flavor is moderate and the beer looks like the greats with a deep mocha head. some piney hop for sure. thicket palate that bemoans more taste.

Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Sample at the brewery. Great stuff, dark adn roasty, bitterness is split between the roast malts and the hops. Nice roast body, aroma is chocolate and some espresso notes.

Brettgraham4 (8) - - DEC 4, 2016 does not count
Keg drawn draft with 40%nitro beer gas to dispense. Lead Feather is reminiscent of a thick high gravity Porter with a relatively low volume of CO2. This creates a milky smooth mouth feel that contrasts with the bitterness of the high lovibond grains in a pleasing way. The lacing is a bit thinner than I would hope for, but the appearance doesn’t detract from the excellent flavor.

3.5
Johnstledger8 (1140) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 7, 2016
Draught. Pours an opaque dark brown with a fading bubbly brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, biscuit, caramel. Taste is of caramel, chocolate, biscuit, vanilla, dark fruits, coffee. Light oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.
