New Beer Blog Perrin Black Ale


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 (

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.

Closing, this brewery is one of my favorite craft breweries in the State Of Michigan.  I am a fan of Petoskey Brewery, Right Brain, Frankenmuth Brewery, and Canton Brew Works.  The goal for this craft brewery is to brew beers that are drinkable and does not matter the beer style.  I will say they did a great job on this brew.  This is not my favorite beer style. I am not saying this is a bad beer.  It is a really good beer and respect what they did with this beer.  I can see many people liking this beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
