Glassware: Best served in a pilsner glass or a heavy mug (which is what I prefer!!)
Personal Notes: Black gold
. that was my first thought when I poured this brew. Pleasant scents filled with sweet molasses, dark chocolate and slow-roasted malts. A hearty, foamy head stayed well for quite a while. But the taste
ooooh how smooth it was
so smooth I had to keep telling myself that this was beer! The taste was just a tad sweet but there was no detection of any bitterness at all! The flavors of sweet molasses, chocolate and malts come through so teasingly well in this black beer. One reviewer somewhere even said it smells like cocoa krispies, tastes like heaven
yeah I can see where they would say that!! This is definitely one full bodied, easy to drink black beer that you dont want to pass up when you can get it!!
This beer is kinda like a movie that isn't great,but doesn't totally suck either.There's a malty sweet/sour thing going on that teeters on the edge of being good- or not.It looks like a stout,but tastes like a malty porter,almost.That's what this beer is-almost something!

This beer is jet black in color. It balanced toward malts with chocolate flavor and some mild anise/licorice in the finish. Creamy and smooth - pretty good beer.
