A stunning American Black Ale! Bottle picked up at the brewery in November. Pours a murky dark auburn that's approaching black, with a surprisingly light coloured head.
Knock-out aroma of pure "west-coast" hops. Wish I could name the specific hop medley, but no simple terms like pine/citrus/mango even begin to give this credit - it's none of those standards while presenting the best of all of them and perfectly balanced with its chocolate malt supporting cast.
The flavour is also hop-forward, with dark roasted malts fleshing out the body and rye notes most evident during the bitter finish. The 8.3% ABV is very well hidden - I hadn't read the bottle and had no idea until logging in to BA - with only a hint of alcohol warmth near the end.
Very sad to only have one bottle. Highly, highly recommend!
