Beer of the day – El Camino (Un)Real Black Ale – Stone / 21st Amendment / Firestone Walker

This one is a group effort from Stone, 21st Amendment,  and Firestone Walker.  An all-California brew they decided to use many California-local ingredients including chia seeds, pink peppercorns, fennel seeds, and Mission figs.

I can say they were right on the “roasty” part.  They were also right on the “black” part.  I honestly can’t taste figs, or fennel, etc.  There is a spice note there but to me its just big black ale.  Tasty but worth the $3.40 a bottle I paid?  Not so sure.

I’d definitely drink it again if provided by someone else 😉
