Cask from the Beer Engine.
A great looking snifter brought to the table. Dark black liquid waits beneath a nice white head.
Smell throws me off. I swear that this smells like garbage. The hops and chocolate combine to make a smell that really can only be imagined as a black plastic bag baking in the hot sun. Not good so far :(
Taste follows the smell. Sure, I can see where they were going with this one. But there's something about the combination of the dank, stinky hops and the chocolate malt that reminds me of a garbage bag. Not that I've ever eaten that kind of thing.
The mouthfeel was the best part of this beer. Can't comment on the carb as this was a cask, but the thickness of the beer is really spot on.
Drinkability suffers tremendously. If your name is Oscar the Grouch, this may remind you of home. But anyone else should know - this is one to be avoided (on cask at the very least).
Serving type: cask
