look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours a deep amber, really cloudy, big frothy head, tons of lacing
Smells bready and malty with notes of toffee. Reminds me of some doppelbocks I've tried. Smell of alcohol is not strong but noticeable. A bit of citrus/hop aroma, but not much, definitely not what you'd get from a typical American DIPA/IIPA.
The taste hits you with tons of malt flavor. This is way malty for an IPA, more malt than anything else in the flavor. Again tastes of bread and toffee. There's plenty of bitterness to balance the malt though.
This definitely doesn't stick to style guidelines, but it's a really interesting beer, unlike any I've had. Really enjoyable. But at 9% it's definitely not a session beer!
