500ml bottle (bottled 6/11/13) poured into a Portsmouth 20th Anniversary stemmed glass.
A - Pours super dark brown that approaches black in color. Two fingers of fluffy head caps the dark liquid with a deep mocha that rises up and above the rim of the glass while still retaining its shape.
S - Grassy and citrusy hops take the lead on the nose immediately noticeable on the pour into the glass. Mild roasty aroma just perceptible behind the hops. Hops smell very fresh...looking forward to the first sip.
T - Quite roasty in flavor, burnt toast like malt base. Acrid, a bit smoky, charred, a bit astringent, mild coffee bitterness. Hops are layered on top rather thickly and manage to cut thru the burnt base quite well. A bit sweet tasting citrus and grass hop flavors - very bright flavors. Some oranges, lemons, grapefruit.
M - Lighter body, low-medium carbonation with a good bubbly tingle to it. Burnt flavor hits up front and lingers far into the finish. Hops are light and bright on top of the char and bring a nice balance to the beer pushing it more towards a refreshing quaffer of a beer.
O - I'm not a huge fan of the Black Ale style and had some reservations buying this, but glad I did. One of the best black ales I've had. Hops have really good fresh citrus notes that lighten the character overall for this beer. Going down pretty easily with dinner.
