Black Hawk Stout is a reasonably-priced, average dark beer. Their website claims that their “intent was to create a Stout that did not overpower the palate.” They have succeeded. Maybe I’ve become hard to impress with all this beer tasting, but I need something a little more “overwhelming.”
There isn’t all that much taste to it. It is overpowering in one respect, though – it is very bitter. The aftertaste is even bitterer. There’s not much of a change in flavor throughout. It has little sweetness, is a bit malty, and sort of rough going down.
