black ? sludge ? maybe the toxic moniker will come through because the rest is just not a good description...
dark brown with some ruby hues, pretty clean looking in terms of clarity, a good amount of head rises up, around the 2 finger range and you know what? it decided to stay around without even a proper invite (rude bastard)...
good lacing and nice uniform microbubbles make a nice night cap for the top of this beer...
so the look is sort of give and take.
hoppy. in the more herbally-honey variety, almost some dry stout tones in there also, not much else for me to expound on
the carbonation seems a bit much, this drinks pretty smooth, there is some hop character, some malt presence, a hint of chocolate.. and that is pretty much it, mostly hints of this or that, nothing memorable is going on
the hops have a decent bite, and there is some warming from the ABV
this beer is OK, not bad in any sense but nothing special. some nice hop punch and good ABV kick but it just seems to be missing an all around mission.
Serving type: can
