Growler Purchased Today, Poured into a Tulip

A: decent size tan-ish head, recedes fairly quickly, but not entirely, tinges of lazing, pretty, black opaque body, dark

S: roasty with touches of chocolate, roast is the most prominent and quite pleasant

T: chocolate picks up a bit more in the taste, but the roast is the key to this beer, this is both flavorful and an easy drinker, easy to take the next sip. I don't get a ton of hop notes, but there is enough bitterness there to keep the beer together. English yeast lets itself be known on the back end.

M: light and smooth for such a dark beer, nailed the style

O: Damn, I was hoping to be the first review here. This is the latest offering from Nebco. They have yet to take a misstep in my book and this is not exception. Nailed the style with a great drinkable brew. Would love to see this out in the Fall as a seasonal. Too bad it was released in Gold Stock season, so it will be mostly ignored for the time being ;)

Deep chestnut with a light brown thick head that recedes slowly. Low aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Rich Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and molasses, some espresso and smoke. Rich and full mouthfeel, a bit tannic. Overall, this is s really good beer. Another CT beer to be proud of.

Surprise (at least to me) from New England Brewing. Poured into a tulip glass.

A) Nice deep dark black, small tan head which quickly dissipates.

S) The nose gives off some coffee and chocolate also sense a slight bitterness.

T) Charred coffee, cocoa with some licorice undertones. This finishes with a nice hoppy bitternes (40 IBU's). I like this combination.

M) Smooth and thin which I think is representative of the style.

O) Nice to have found this tasty treat. Hopefully it goes into the rotation.
