The Crabtree Brewing Company is in Greely, Colorado.
This 7.7% ABV beer pours pure black in color, with a large billowing head of brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted malt, with sour and bitter notes. The taste upfront is deep, dark roasted malt, lots of coffee, a touch of dark chocolate, then a much more light, airy, tart and fruity note, ester-like, finishing nicely bitter, but clean. Compared to the black IPA's I have tasted, this is lacking the IPA part, but it makes a very tasty and clean finishing American porter.
