In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Perrin Brewery. It is their Black Ale. This beer was a Black Lager. They changed this beer to an ale to keep up with demand. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get into this black ale.
It has a jet black color with a tan color head at first that disappears over time. The smell has a chocolate with coffee like notes. The taste of this light body ale has a chocolate to coffee like notes. It has a heavy malty notes but still light like a light Lager. The aftertaste has a nutty finish that hangs around. It is extremely drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.perrinbrewing.com):
Perrin Black ABV 5.8% IBU 25
The Black Ale is low in gravity, clean, crisp, and flavor-filled; giving off a bread-like aroma. This beer proves that deep colors do not signify rich potency. Our Black Ale is deceptively light on the tongue.
