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: ★★★★☆
