Tried this wonderful beer out of Sixpoints Brewery in Brooklyn, NY the other day and I’m hooked!
I haven’t been able to find out too much about it, but it appears to be a limited one-time only brew according to the kids at BeerAdvocate. I had it out of a bottle, but it was a generic no-label bottle directly from the brewery as a sample. Apparently, it was introduced earlier this year for the third anniversary of the brewery and it was only to be sold at a BBQ joint in Williamsburg. So I don’t know why I am even reviewing it, because I don’t know if it will ever see the light of day again.
And that would be a shame, because this is one damned fine brew. It was definitely a smoother, less bitter brew than many dark beers out there on the market. Something that might appeal to the drinker that normally shuns the night.
It garnered a healthy B+ from the measly 8 reviews it garnered from the BeerAdvocate faithful. But the comments seem to back up what I thought. Smooth, drinkable, tasty…all good things. Let’s hope that Sixpoints introduces it to a wider market one of these days.
