I was very pleased with this Black Ale. It poured with a super thick head that had a ton of flavor on its own. As it name suggests, it is very dark, thick, and smooth. But it has enough body and robustness to give it some meat and bite. It had some sweet notes too, which meant I chugged it down quicker than I wanted. Or, I really should have had a 22oz bottle of this. Hint.
