Holy Mackerel Mack In Black

11oz pour at Taco Mac, East West Connector, Austell, GA, USA.
Jet black pour that is reminiscent of a stout, but lacks the creamy consistency and mouthfeel that you would normally associate with that style. Thin collar of lace forms.
Strong apple cider acidity in the nose that has me a little worried. It almost smells infected!
Tastes are better than the nose would suggest. Sweet, mildly alcohol licorice. A little thin and the cider infection taste comes through a touch too. I’m pretty sure that the beer is NOT infected but it appears to be a “natural” trait of this brew.
Easy drinking and the sweetness certainly reduces the alcohol profile.
Odd beer in some ways since it lacks much of any hop profile, especially considering the American Strong Ale category. I’m also a little suspicious of beer marketing companies with 100% contract brewed products.
