|Black Toad - Distinctive Dark Ale|
Just like their Oatmeal Stout we picked up a pack because they were such a great deal. $5.99 for 6 ends up being a dollar a beer! Great for people on a budget like us who also love to try new things in the beer/wine department.
So what did we think?
Black Toad - Distinctive Dark Ale
from Joseph Brau Brewing Company
Colour: A mahogany/chestnut brown. Translucent - some light gets through, not quite opaque.
Taste: Roasted malt - kind of like baked bread, nutty flavour, hoppy, caramel notes. Could taste a hint of either chocolate or perhaps coffee.
Overall: For a dark beer, this one is not very heavy. It has moderate to low carbonation which we like. This beer is great value for the money. It's a good dark/brown ale with an English influence but it's not the best we've tasted. We enjoyed drinking it by the fire while snacking on some fresh baked bread.
