New Belgium Enlightened Black Ale


5.6% abv

As the name and picture suggests, this is a dark, thick, meaty ale with strong malt flavors. Nice head and a thick syrupy feel that coats the glass. At first, it tastes like a typical well-rounded stout, but has some very sweet flavors mixed in with chocolate. It is very good, but the sweetness was a surprise. An excellent sipping beer.
