III FLOYDS. SURLY. BLAKKR IMPERIAL BLACK ALE
Poured from a 16 oz can into a shaker pint. This was served chilled.
A) Deep brown... Nearly black... This had a small tan head. Really good retention, and plenty of lacing.
S) This beer has a fantastic piney aroma with a light amount of roast. Light citrus and tropical fruit stay in the background.
T) Very near the nose with the exception being just a hint of black licorice. Now I typically don't like black licorice, but this really works. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste. And my goodness, the ABV is so well hidden. I can't believe this is almost 10%.
M) Medium body with moderate carbonation. Even with the bitterness this is really smooth. Semi-dry finish. Nice mouthfeel...
O) This is a really good brew... Right up there with Black Top from New Glarus as far as I'm concerned. Glad to recommend.
