look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A very sessionable brew with a great hop profile and a light body and moderate carbonation. I can easily polish off a few pints of this before moving on to an 077 "dub dub."
Pour is nearly pitch black with a wispy whitish head. Some stickyness to the head making for some decent lacing. Held to the light deep chestnut highlights are evident at the edges.
Smell is floral hoppiness with some roasty notes -- a touch of coffee?? Some pine?
Taste is more on the dry side than the sweet, the malt is there, some espresso, some sour notes, but the kicker is the strong hop profile. Caught me by surpise when they called it a "milk stout" I was expecting more sweetness than I found. Not disappointed though, I love the flavor profile trending toward the hops on this one. Refreshing and light. Works year round for this Bayshore dweller. I would pair this with some local shellfish or a surf-caught Striper.
Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Carbonation is moderate.
Overall this is a great go to beer from the first brewery in Atlantic Highlands since the Dutch Arrived here in the 1600's.
Keep up the good work lads!
