Moon Dog Black Lung

Moon Dog

Published December 6, 2011

The Black Lung first appeared as a teaser keg at Josie Bones during Good Beer Week, where its no holds barred smokiness was undermined a little by a lack of body. No such problem this time around as it gets a full release, complete with tweaked recipe and a rich, smooth mouthfeel. Considering there's both peated malt and a bourbon barrel at play, it's a surprisingly rounded affair, with plenty of sweetness in the malt profile to balance the smoke and oak. The effects of the bourbon really come into play in the mouth, rolling around your tongue in such a manner as to make you wish it was mid-winter again. Well, almost. The chances of some still being around Crafty Towers next winter are slim, however, as this is our pick of the Moon Dog releases to date.
