Brewery: Beau’s Brewing Co.
Type: American Black Ale
Thoughts: Gorgeously thick creamy head sticks around forever leaves the glass a mess. Pitch black. Striking beer. Nice label too. They have a great graphic designer. Very pretty thing. It’s interesting I didn’t expect it but it’s a hop forward smell (I didn’t see that it was IBU 60 until afterwards). It’s jumpy- excited. Emily says she smells grapefruit. That may be it. The mouthfeel is excellent. Smooth and dignified but complex. It’s got cocoa and liquorice. I have no idea what I am drinking with dark beer- I should research how they make it because I am completely (pardon the pun) in the dark. But this is a seductive and fine beer- perhaps a new special occasion beer as it is quite expensive. I’ve never had a better dark beer.
