Good carbonation level. Intense citrus hop aroma is very inviting and leaves me wanting for more. Intense hop taste and mild carbonation tickles the tongue fading into dark malt flavor. Not a ton of roasted malt flavor, but enough for me. Viscous mouthfeel. Excellent!

Pours a deep, deep brown black with ruby high lights around the edges. A tall tan head sits on top leaving lots of sticky lacing.
Its dry hopped so along with a nice roasted malt bill we have some pungent oily hops with a citrust scent. Taste finds a good roasted malt bill and some light hops citrusy as in the nose but more complimentory to rhe malts. Drinks well.
Smooth tasting but a little flat also. Finishes semi dry and semi bitter. A solid offering from the boys at New Holland.

Had this charm on tap at reverend's and i must say besides the imperial hatter this is probably the best of the series. A very malty BLACK hatter. A truly rare beer that should probably be bottled sometime. Not very hoppy but still a verry good brew.

2011 Vintage, first bottled version, I think. Remember having this in the brewpub two years ago. Glad it's bottled now.

Poured into my New Holland Pint glass. Pours a clear deep garnet with a sandy tan colored, rocky head. Head stands up pretty well, leaving some lacing.

Aromas of grassy, citrusy, hops, with a hint of roasted malt and dark coffee.

Flavors of lightly roasted malt, dark coffee, citrus and piny hop bitterness. Finish is medium, with a nice citrus peel bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium, with a nice mouthcoating bitterness.

Overall, a very nice, balanced, ABA. Not too roasty. Roast malt and hop bitterness pair nicely.
