Very dark brown color with a moderate, stable light tan head. Some citric hops atop roasted malt in the aroma. Sweet start with some toasted malt and floral hops. Palate seems a touch thin, but otherwise ok. Some dark chocolate and hops in the finish. Rather dry linger, with black and roasted malts. Certainly in the hoppy stout mold, ala Barney Flats. 4/12

[Bottle] Very deep brown pour with decent looking lacing. Anise, char, tobacco and burnt caramel aromas. Flavors include light chocolate, coffee, licorice, some wood, herbal bitterness and some earthy spice. Thinner body compared to other beers in this style. The flavors worked well though.

Bottle. Very dark dense pour with a foamy beige head. Aroma is licorice and a hint of citrus. Taste is roasty and heavy licorice. Medium to dense palate. Lingering finish. AWISLguy (3277) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a foamy black with a brown head. Lotta lace from all the foam. Aroma has roast and caramel and some molasses. Nothing too strong. Later down the glass, some black malts show through. Taste is of sweet caramel, some roast, light licorice. Medium bodied with some alcohol. Finishes more sweet than bitter, but in that blend palate. Interesting take on the style. No real hop presence but not a bad brew. 13.3 mrjaxson (611) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2014
A rainbow of taste, from hoppy sharp bitterness to malty sweetness to, on a distant finish, dry bitterness. Best when it is drank cold. Imbibed on tap at the MKE Ale House.

Black of course with a thick head. It has a palate like a stout, thick and heavy. It has a fair amount of hops, but also a thick, rich palate. I am not sure about the style designation, but it is a solid beer. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2013
12oz bottle-thin foamy tan-black. A-licorice/roasty-dk malt. T-roasty dk malt, earthy hops. akoeninger (769) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Definitely a black beer. Smells hoppy and almost burnt. Nice balance of hop and roasted flavors. Really hits the spot for both hops and malt. Easy-drinking, a great stand by.

Aptly named, Black Iron pours black into the glass with a huge head of creamy tan foam. Nose is hops and burnt malt. Nice viscosity and mouthfeel, the beer is very flavorful with a nice blend of dark roasted malt and hops. A quality beer that pairs well with a variety of nuts or cheeses.
