Summer is over, but cheer up pretty people, it's time for the newest installment in our Fade to Black Series. This Rye Ale boasts a deep dark brown body with an off white head. This dark brew envelopes your nose with aromas of dark coffee, maple wood and hints of dark agave nectar. The flavor is an intense evolution that starts off with nut bread flowing into molasses followed by a taste of licorice. This lands on spicy rye notes all before being washed away by earthy hop, leaving behind a slight black pepper sensation. So put away the bathing suit, pop a bottle of this black beauty and watch summer fade way.ID: 55420 Last updated 9 years ago Added to database 9 years ago

Comes out of tap coffee brown with a thin tan head. Smoky aroma has coffee, chocolate, and rye notes - rich and very tempting! Bold flavor has roast malt, quality coffee, toasty rye, earthy, and nutty notes. A winner! Heavy mouthfeel has some good fizz. This is a must.

Tasted this on a women beer enthusiasts' night out a few months ago-- just now catching up on recording some older reviews. Nearly black with a persistent ring and an aroma of coffee, maple, and whiskey. Sweet char flavor and deep like a comforting blanket.

A dark, deep brown in color with a big frothy textured, ran head rising above. There's a good hang time on the head. An impressive lacing is left. Roastiness in the nose as in the tasting. Not a lot of hops as you'd expect from the style. Light-medium bodied.

Pours dark brown/black with a 2 inch tan head. Head retention is good, and there's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark/rye bread, nuts and some coffee. It tastes like roasted and burnt/charred malt, bittersweet chocolate, dark/rye bread, nuts, and a bit of molasses and coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and coating, with moderate carbonation. Overall another good beer from the Fade To Black Series.
