Black Toad Ale
March 18, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Black Toad Ale is a dark, top-fermented beer with coffee & chocolate flavors from the roasted Crystal and chocolate malts. A nice sweet-bitter balance is the result of the roasted malts working in concert with the Fuggle hops. Add a medium level of carbonation and you have a dark brew that’s a good partner to myriad foods (sausage & beans, cheese, salmon…) and eminently enjoyable, especially at $5.99* (plus deposit where applicable) for a 6-pack of 12 ounce bottles.
*Black Toad Ale is currently available in Trader Joe's stores where beer is sold. It is $5.99 unless otherwise noted here: IA, NE, IN, MA, NJ, ME, NY, DC, NC & SC: $6.49; NH & GA: $6.99 and KY: $7.49. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
