Review: Newcastle Cabbie Black Ale

Newcastle Cabbie bottleThis latest release in Newcastle’s limited edition series is definitively its best, a black ale called Cabbie. Seductively dark, the brew is surprisingly mellow, with chocolatey malt notes and a nutty finish. Think coffee — but freshly picked berries, not dark roast. Cabbie’s got enough bitterness (just 25 IBUs) to keep it mouth-cleansing, but has a big enough body to keep things interesting, rumbling, and fireside-friendly.

Watch for point of sale displays that feature a $5 credit toward Taxi Magic cab fares. Not a bad deal!
