7% ABV, Draft

Appearance: Dark brown, essentially black (as the name implies) with a small, creamy head.
Aroma: Fungal and smoky.
Taste: Spices and a hint of vanilla almost disappear behind a tyranny of peat.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a clean finish.

This provocative beer is a love-it-or-hate-it, but well worth the experience either way. The smoky, earthy flavor comes from the peat-roasted malt and will give you plenty to talk about at the office on Monday.
