Poured a dark amber with a tiny head that dissipates quickly.
It smells delicious. Notes of sherry, floral hops, toffee, and sweet malt.
The taste is similar to the smell. Sherry, and sweet malt with lots of hop bitterness. The malt is trying to poke through with some creaminess that gets quickly dried up with bitterness of the hops. The bitterness really lingers on the back of the tongue.
I appreciate the American character with the huge hop profile but I'm thinking I'll get another and let it age for a year or so to let the hop bite mellow. I'd like more malt to poke through and blend with the hops.
