Featured Review – Black is Beautiful from Crowns & Hops

Thanks to the Glendale Tap who have been killing it as a to-go spot, I picked up the Crowns & Hops version of Black is Beautiful, Pecan Pie Stout.

Right in between silky and robust. Good strong taste here. Pecans are a light touch, have to dig a little to taste.  Lactose seems light as well. But overall it comes together as a real nice robust Porter edging into stout territory.  Would have liked to ge5 a little sweetness for a version labeled as pecan pie.  Don’t need pastry stout levels of sugar but a touch would be nice.
