On tap at Queen Vic in Houston.
A: Pours a dark black color, almost opaque. A two finger tan head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace.
S: Resiny hops up front. Soapy and oily. Herbal, grassy, and citrus aromas come out next. Dark fruits and a light sweet malt aroma lingers.
T: Follows the nose. Resiny, soapy, and oily. Citrus and grassy hops are dominate. After the hops fade this is really sweet. Finishes with a large grapefruit bitterness.
M/D: This has a medium to full body. Good carbonation. Though this is overly thick, syrupy, and oily. Not hard to drink a pint of, but a one and done for me.
For me, this is pretty typical of this "style." If this is your thing, than this is a good one. Though I don't really get it. A dark beer that is overly hoppy. Nothing special and a little over the top.
Serving type: on-tap
