Comments on the New Brewers Cave Roasted
Black Barley Ale
"I'm a big fan of
beer. Not that Miller Lite 'might
as well drink water' stuff - real beer.
You should try this stuff...
and I were in Stillwater on Friday afternoon
and the president of this brewery was walking
by w/ a cooler. I believe he was stopping
in on the local bars letting the staff try
out this new beer. We got talking and he
gave me one to try. This beer is awesome!

elements (my fault). The flavor was
fantastic - all the way through. Sometimes
the 'craft' beers have a tough finish -
they can be 'hoppy'. This tasted great
from beginning to end.
I love beer,
but I'm not great at describing what I like
/ don't like about certain beers. I

a hard time describing why. I loved
your beer and look forward to finding it
in the store.

"I just tried the "new" Brewer's Cave Black
Barley Ale. Very tasty! It has great color and smell. The flavor was rich
