Bridgeport Dark Rain
"The Pacific Northwest's rain is almost as famous as its beer. Dark Rain, an intensely hopped, yet surprisingly smooth black ale, will shower your taste buds with roasted malt and chocolate flavors derived from black wheat and dark crystal malt."
I found it smooth and pleasing but lacking any hop flavor or aroma. Ignoring that "intensely hopped" description, it's a great beer similar to Dick Danger Ale from Dick's Beer in Centralia. I find I like a dark ale for times when I want something dark but not the harshness of a stout. I would recommend this beer.
