This is not your run-of-the-mill fruit beer: It's best described as a flavorful blend of an imperial stout fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and a tart shot of pomegranate. Midnight black with a frothy, brown head, the beer exudes an intense aroma that wafts forth with delightful milk-chocolate-covered cherry scents. Less sweet that the aromoa, the swallow leaves you with a mouthful of roasted grains and cocoa powder underscored by soft pomegranate tartness. There are no overt hop flavors, but a mild bitterness plays in the background. Full-bodied and softly carbonated, Mack in balck flips the style on its side with an obvious alcohol presence and lingering chocolate flavors.
