Kentucky

4.18/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours an opaque deep brown with amber highlights and a frothy half inch tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Chocolate, roast malt, and coffee grounds dominate the initial aroma. Notes of nuttiness, caramel sweetness, and citrus add complexity, with a hint of resin emerging late.

Flavor reveals more floral hop character at first, which ushers in chocolate and is eventually overpowered by deeply roasted malt and coffee. There's an underpinning of subtle dark fruit. The finish is somewhat bitter and fairly nutty. It's borderline acrid, but the nutty character saves the experience.

Body is a touch full, fairly creamy, with low carbonation and a hint of an acrid bite.

I didn't recall as much floral hop character, but it makes things interesting. The roast malt and coffee are kept in check fairly well. Would like a touch more chocolate. The underlying fruity notes are nice.
