On-tap @ Tony's Darts Away - reviewed from notes; served in a tulip.
Very dark grayish-brown with a hint of cordovan, but opaque (at least when held up to the brightest lights in the bar) body with a thin sticky desert sand/khaki head. Superior retention, nice sandy lacing, and a light glassy varnish of legs.
Roast malt, black malt, faint coffee, scalded sugar, and earthy hops in the nose. Powerful, unique, and inviting.
Immense dry malt, licorice, grassy hops, loam, clay, chicory, cinnamon, tobacco, green peppercorn, the list goes on - this is just packed with flavor. Dry light-roasted finish with mild bitterness and citrus throughout. Hops are contributing substantial flavor on their own I think, but I can't put my finger on analogous tastes...Very fresh and perfectly crafted.
Moderate carbonation, medium-light bodied, zesty feel...alcohol is well hidden.
Hard not to drain your glass in moments - each sip demands the next and your thirst is never slaked.
Serving type: on-tap
