3.88/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: appearance is a clear dirt brown with near no carbonation and one finger of a very light brown chocolate coloured foam, residing to a thin crust.
S: malt driven with a seemingly hoppy backing smell to finish. Citrus notes and some bready character as well.
T: really bitter and dry at the beginning. A lingering bitterness that surrounds the tongue and sides of mouth with a slight caramel flavour. As the smell suggested a malty presence and an apparent milky cream touch. Quite unusual but in saying that quite pleasant and enjoyable.
M: a sticky residual results throughout the mouth, As though lack of carbonation in this case has been replaced by other prominent features. My tongue feels dry and overwhelmed from the front on hop character but again the creamy milk side smoothes over replenishing any unpleasant sensation.
O: an extremely unusual beverage, whether it be something discouraging the true taste as in dirty lines or maybe something else.. A bad keg? But if all is well and this is the beer even though it now sounds like im being harsh, I definitely would have again to see if the same result is present. And I look forward to bottled inversion. A beer that is perplexing to the pallet. And now im half way through the pint I want another! Try this beer! Deschutes always amazing
Serving type: on-tap
