Finally found this seasonal ale on the shelves! I have been looking forward to it for quite some time. Picked up a 6-pack at Lukas Liquor the day the first shipment hit the shelves
Poured from bottle, undated, to pint glass. The beer is a very solid black/brown color with a creamy 1 finger tan head with pleasant retention and lacing. The nose presents a good mix of citrusy hops and chocolately malt character. Hop forward but not over the top, quite nice. The flavor consists of very much the same powdery cocoa with mild bitterness and a good amount of citrus hop character. Mild toasty malt presence. Well balanced. Medium bodied with a mouthfeel of soft creaminess. Finishes with a slight chalky texture but is relatively smooth. Very drinkable. I really enjoyed this beer, excellent representation of the style. Look forward to the next!
