Comments: This is cloudy, bright yellow beer with spicy, citrus aromas & flavors. It’s a nice balance although my glass tasted somewhat weak and flat compared to previous tries of this beer. Perhaps a bad keg or a bad pour? At any rate, a decent refreshing beer.
Comments: A reddish-brown beer with a thick head, it offers a dark-roasted aroma and a good balance of sweet & bitter flavors. It kind of seemed like a wheat beer evolving into a porter. It’s an interesting beer and a nice change of pace.
Comments: Starting with an orangish hue this beer has a juicy motif that screams citrus in aroma and flavor. It also leaves a slight taste of wheat on the lips. It has a lot of hops so it’s very bitter but not to the detriment of this beer.

Comments: Another beer sampled on our Martha’s Vineyard weekend. The beer had the blackness of its name and style, but flavor-wise it was lacking the stout punch. Other than some chocolaty overtones I found it tasted weak and watery. I was disappointed by this beer.

Comments: Sampled this at the Off Shore Ale brewpub in Oak Bluffs. A light brown beer with a thin, quickly-disappearing head. The taste is bitter hoppiness followed by a fruity tang that tickles the lips. A good beer but I’m not crazy about it.
