Review - Weyerbacher Brewing Company's Black Hole Ale
"This hearty, chocolaty, dark brew is made with an intriguing amount of Blackstrap molasses added to the kettle." -- Weyerbacher
Pours a somewhat cloudy dark brown to caramel color that settles out very dark and produces a very large tan colored fizzy head with some sporadic yet super sticky lacing. Aroma is of medium strength with some roasted malts and an intriguingly complex wild yeast aroma, similar to a Geuze, and Sean is getting some sour raspberry. Initial taste is sour and slightly bitter and as the finish approaches, the sour takes over the bitter and rides out through the finish. Medium bodied, there is a syrupy mouthfeel and surprising fizziness with some wild yeast tastes and a bit of chocolate. Reminds us of a Geuze, Sean thinks this would be Ignace\'s favorite porter.
