Black Beast – American Black Ale

2010 December 2

John – has a smell somewhere between mango and celery. I didn’t think celery had a smell, but there you go; this beer has taught me something. Despite this crazy aroma, there’s a BIG blunt (good) roasty taste to it. ¬†You know when the weather man tells you about an approaching cold front? The curvy line with the pointy teeth on it? It’s like that – a looming, inescapable carbon-based maltiness that is damn tasty! Not sure I like the burnt aftertaste, but this beer is definitely worth a go.

Graham – Big. Bold. Taste. I really like a dark beer that has some hops in it – it’s such a rare find in Australia. I guess what makes this an American Black Ale is the addition of American hops, but I would have to consult the style guide to make sure. It’s not opaque or heavy like a stout. A lingering bitterness on the back palette. Delicious!

Rating: ★★★★☆
