Boothbay Craft Brewery, Inc.
Style | ABV
Black Rocks is a dark rich beauty with pronounced coffee and chocolate flavors. She starts out harmless enough with the use of chocolate, caramel, and black malts and roasted barley. Over 300 lbs of base malt brings this up to a robust 6.7% ABV with west coast hops spicing up the finish and giving it a hop bite to cleanse the sweetness of that chocolate cake your eating. Brewed by my wife, for my wife, and ended up just like her! And that's all I have to say about that.

Grabbed one on nitro at the Boothbay Craft Brewery in Boothbay Harbor. Beautiful two finger dark brown head. Aromas of nuts, wood, coffee and malt. Taste has coffee, chocolate and malty finish. Heavy body initially, but it kind of disappears quickly after a sip. Not much for lingering flavors. Still an excellent choice.
Serving type: nitro-tap

From the growler into my nonic:
A: black body gives a two finger foamy tan head that gently spider webs and concaves into the body
S: strong notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. Some malts come out subtley as the beer warms.
T: has the coffee and chocolate dominating as some of that nice malty flavoring comes out once again as the beer warms.
M: medium to heavy, yet still drinkable, dry bitter aftertaste and finish
O: I really like this and would definitely have it again. I will be making more trips to the Boothbay area as more of their beers come out.
