Saddle Black (5.1% cask, 5.8 keg & can, IBU 65) is a gnarly black beer using Pilgrim, Chinook and Cascade hops to help give a full smoky and citrus aroma.
The roasted malts used to craft this full flavoured black beer will give a taste of chocolate and espresso, whilst the use the of smoked malt gives saddle black a well rounded finish.
The aromas are a mix of black pepper, deep fruits, orange and spices. The mouthfeel is full bodied and complex with a lingering bitter finish. Surprisingly drinkable for its strength…
