Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a New Belgium globe glass.
Appearance: Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black - just a hint of light shines through at the bottom of the glass. Three fingers of off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves ton of lacing. As this type of beer should look.
Smell: Citrusy and grassy hops, slightly tempered by sweet malt (caramel) and chocolate in the background.
Taste: A strong bitter mix of chocolate and hops. The bitterness quickly fades into a long-lasting, sweet, smooth finish. Not as complex as the nose would indicate, but very enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation, and a little bit thin.
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer - a nice take on a style that is difficult to find, and a nice change-of-pace from the other winter beers. Very enjoyable.
Serving type: bottle
