I finally got around to returning the two 32oz growlers to Beyond the Pale this afternoon. Naturally, I needed refills. :)
I picked up The Darkness, which I had tried at the Brewery Market back in July. It's 5.6% ABV, 30 IBU. Pretty easy drinking.
It's not a very heady beer on the pour, unless you intentionally pour fast, but it dissipates fairly quickly.
The aroma is coffee. The taste is coffee with a bitter finish. This might be a good cupcake beer. ;) The carbonation is pretty light. I'd almost think it was rather flat.
I enjoyed it, but the others I've tasted like it that I prefer more.
