Saugatuck Brewing Company Double Black Ale

Short and sweet tonight.

Saugatuck Brewing Company’s Double Black Ale is 8.2% ABV and rates a 93 IBU.  Bitter.  Bitter.  Bitter.  I didn’t even want to try it.

It was a pour-out but it was close.  Ok, I liked.  It’s dumpable.  The third sip was it.  I can’t do it.  It’s very dark and bitter.  The back-of-your-throat-disgusting kind of bitter.  I will say that it doesn’t linger as long as some of the others and the bitterness goes away more quickly than some of the others but I still couldn’t do it.

It doesn’t taste of coffee or smoke.  It doesn’t have a particularly roasty flavor.  Strangely, it’s quite citrusy.  Mister thought it was quite flowery. It doesn’t smell like much of anything but sweet to me.  Good luck with this one.  Unless you really like dark and bitter beers, don’t bother.  It’s just strange…

Cheers…I think…
