Day #217 – Austin Beerworks Black Thunder

August 6, 2011

Brand new beer from a brand new brewery today!

Austin Beerworks Black Thunder

Austin Beerworks opened up earlier this year.  At this point they only have 4 beers in production, and I have one of them in front of me today!  I was super excited to see this beer; so excited in fact, that I forgot to take a picture!  Haha, so here is what the tap handle looked like:

This beer is classified as a Schwarzbier and has an ABV of 5.2%.

Tap at Black Star. So cool to see this here. Very dark brown color that let’s little light through. Tan head.

Aroma is chocolatey, dark malts,light roast and other sweet flavors.

Flavor is dark roast, bitter malts and grains, some dark chocolate. Finished bitter.

Man it’s so good to see so many new brewpubs and breweries popping up in Austin.  Very nice!
