Why we're here...

Beer culture is coming of age. At any store, restaurant, bar, or friend's house you can now find at least a few good brews. In fact, there seem to be so many new beers, breweries and bars it's difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the mediocre.

If you're going spend $10 on one beer, what should you buy? If you're going to drive 2 hours to check out a brewery, what's worth your time? If you're going to plan a Friday night, what has a good selection and friendly atmosphere? We're here to help you answer these questions.

Dark Night

Dark Night is an Oatmeal Stout by the Santa Cruz Ale Works of Santa Cruz, CA.

I picked this up at Total Wine and More on Arden in Sacramento. It has an ABV of 6%.

The aroma roasted coffee and chocolate. The taste has the roasted, coffee upfront followed by a bitter coffee finish followed by sour note and a metallic, coppery taste. The body is watery for a stout.

Blah, not good. Skip It.

  1. Coming from my home town, I really wanted it Try It recommendation, however, having tried several other Santa Cruz Ale Works beers and not being impressed, I must say I'm not surprised.

    That said, I think it's time for some reviews of Moylans brews.
