The Black & Tackle is as the name states black with a tan head that dissipates fairly quickly.
There is a distinct chocolate and coffee aroma with a slight berry like sweetness.
The coffee and chocolate are dominant in the beginning with a nice dry finish.
Medium mouth feel with a good amount of carbonation. There is a slight alcohol feel but not much surprisingly for this high alcohol brew.
It is a nice beer to sip for a evening or to have with food. It can be purchased at the brewery in Somerset Nova Scotia or occasionally on tap at Stillwell. I guess the bottomline on this is a great beer brewed here.
