Stoudt's Black Eye PA
A beer that my friend Deuane pulled out of his cellar to share was Stoudt's Black Eye PA. The beer pours a cloudy caramel color with a frothy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of caramel, lemon, and pine. The taste is sweet and malty with a caramel sweetness, licorice, and molasses. As far as spices, there is a large pepper profile, which creates a dry finish. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. This was a spicy black IPA, and I really enjoyed the entire profile of it. It had a great sweet base to build off of, so the added spices were not overwhelming.
