Served in tulip - Starbucks espresso-dark. Head is tight, rye/whole wheat in color but dissipates quickly.
Scent is loaded with coffee and hearty roasted chocolate malt. Good stuff - piney hops way is background - not a lot of alcohol here. All working well together.
This is hefty hefty hefty...loads of malt with slight vegetal hop presence and a hint of alcohol burn that keeps it from being too chewy.
Mouthfeel is a little disjointed - this one rolls a little heavy with an alcohol spike on the finish.
Definitely a sipper - maybe time will even this out. Good stuff - a little heavy with an independent alcohol burn though.
Serving type: on-tap
