22oz bottle poured out into a big stein. Straight from Portland sent by homeboy GD via Jeff and Phyllis.
A: Dark chocolate brown with an eggshell white head that settles into a thick film.
S; Very malty as expected - pumpernickel or spiced raisin cake. Some earthy European hops are also slightly noticeable.
T: This is substantially more bitter than most alts I've had previously. Along with the sharp hops, there's chocolate and smoked malts, coffee, and some alcohol spice. Has some slight fruit characters, especially raisin, but they take a back seat to the hops and are most apparent in the finish.
M: Light to medium body, slightly sticky with full carbonation.
A little bitter, but overall, a well made beer that's easy to appreciate. Would love to have another bottle of this stuff.
Serving type: bottle
