4/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: very dark brown with red light let through. Body appears to be relatively haze-free based on the deep red highlights. Head is a thick finger of frothy tan foam, leaving a nice lace as it dissipates. Attractive.
Smell: big herby, citrusy hop aromas with a thick, sweet, alcoholic malt underneath. Smells a bit like a strong ale. Not bad at all.
Taste: strong, but not overpowering hop flavor is right up front. Citrus is highlighted here; this is followed by the sweet, strong malt character and a strong but balanced bitterness. A good example of the style.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a concomitant creaminess. Good stuff.
Overall: a good, if strong, example of an American black ale. This might even be better classified as a strong ale. I would have this again.
Serving type: bottle
