Odd I recall black hearted to be…..black? I suppose I was just expecting the trend of black IPAs. Pours a copper and straw color, strong density with a tall white head, leaving lacing all over.
There is a very clear “funky, earthy” English hop profile here so the style seems legit (darn). That said there’s a strong American something here I like.
The beer opens with intense assault on the front of the tongue where the hops simply dominate and nothing else is heard. From there the hops subside and the malt dominates just as intensely leaving a caramel malt sugary sweetness from the middle to the back of the mouth. Balance is perfectly flawed on both sides! Ok after reading the comments on the bottle the malt makes more sense. The toast and oak are what makes this malt so intense and effective. Huge props for this usage! Not sure how English they are…..
The carbonation is perfectly creamy and interesting, the malty back is thick and nearing the syrupy stage. I’m digging this.
12 dollars for a bomber? 12 freaking dollars for a beer that must be consumed fresh, doesn’t age, and isn’t as good as dreadnaught? I’m sorry but I live with your insane prices guys, but this one is beyond out of wack! That said if you see it on tap for a reasonable price, it is amazing beer and one to seek out.
I saw a man buy old foghorn for 25+ today for a 6er. I really wanted to ask how he could justify that for a 6er of ok beer. The thing is this beer is 39 for a 6er equivalent and well I can’t even begin to accept that for this really really good beer.
