look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
App- Pours a dark copper--almost a mahogany in color with a thin film for a head. Spotty lacing and residue on the glass.
Smell- First a smell of musty hops and the sweet smell of rich caramel malt comes later. A tinge of alcohol can be sensed as well. Alot going on here and difficult to separate it all out
Taste- The beer is more bitter than I would have assumed. The bitterness is of a coffee/dark chocolate type rather than one of hops, although those are present as well. A hint of what seems to be smokiness and/or peated malt comes in as well and gives the beer an earthy flavor. Sweetness is subdued and not as present as in the smell, but shows in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability- Full bodied and has a lasting impression on the tongue, so not one to chug. The alcohol is hidden well by the various flavors in the beer, but there is a lot to try and concentrate on.
Serving type: bottle
