Blind Spot (High Water Brewing)

8.2% ABV
Purchased at Taylor’s Market ($4.99/22 oz. bottle) and poured into mugs.

His Notes:

The very curious Blind Spot pours black with amber highlights and a fluffy tan head.  It has an abnormally heavy and earthy nose containing chicory, sassafras, and licorice root, very similar to an old-fashioned root beer.  Blind Spot’s taste follows suit – there is very little in the way of traditional malty/hoppy flavors offered, but rather more chicory and root flavors with a strong and silky menthol finish.  It’s more similar in taste, aroma, and color to a natural root beer than an American black ale, and as much as I like the bold attempt, I doubt I will ever be compelled to sample this brew again.
