Beer Review: Adelbert's Black Rhino

As I continue my journey through the beers of Adelbert’s
Brewery out of Austin, Texas, I now feast my eyes on the Black Rhino. This dark
black session ale comes in at 5.6% and my palate is feeling up to the challenge
to see or taste what it has to offer. Let’s see how it compares.

Commercial Description:

Black Session Ale (5.6% ABV)
2013
Craft Beer Awards Gold Medal
Bronze Medal Belgian Strong Dark Ale from Best of Craft Beer Awards 




THE
ALE:
 Black Rhino is an earthy ale with hints of coffee and
cocoa that pours as dark as the name we gave it. Don’t let the name fool you.
This dark ale is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking. It pairs well with
salty appetizers, bold musky cheeses, and wild game dishes.
 
THE
STORY:
 Del loved photography, and his time in Kenya provided
many opportunities for this passion. He would seek out and photograph amazing
things on his adventures. We named this black ale in honor of the rare black
rhino that Del would “hunt” during photo safaris in Kenya. This rare ale, like
the black rhino, is truly a beautiful sight to behold.
