Deepest black color, black hole is an appropriate name, not even light ray escaping. It made a two finger thick caramel head with medium retention but keeping a constant plate.
Really nice and bold aroma, truly balanced meaning roasted notes don’t offset hopping and other nuances. Notes of licorice, espresso, cocoa, earthy and citrus hops, pine, wood, powder milk, grapefruit and some dark fruits.
Sweet flavor of lactic acid, piney and citrus hops, molasses, honey, coffee, licorice, vanilla, red fruits and oats. Dry and bitter aftertaste with a lingering roasted note.
Full creamy body with low carbonation. Definitely does not feel as 13.1% abv.
Good beer with great looks and smells, very lactic and a tad overly sweet though. While it was cold, citrus and piney hops was refreshing its bold and complex flavors and it was really pleasant. Still I enjoyed trying it.
