Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is 10 Barrel Brewing Company S1nist0r Black Ale. I picked up this beer while in Bend, OR at Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Café (here).
From the 10 Barrel Brewing Company website: “This beer has been around almost as long as the brewery. Don’t be fooled by the name, this dark beer is surprisingly light bodied and refreshing.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a tan head and excellent lacing.
Aroma: Roasted and chocolate malts and floral hops.
Taste: Roasted black malts, chocolate, coffee and a bit of a charred flavor. Hop presence is very slight.
Overall: Easy to drink, 10 Barrel Brewing Company S1nist0r Black Ale was enjoyable. At 6.7% ABV this beer is a lot like a Schwarzbier, but not quite. I’d certainly drink this one again.
