Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 09-18-2009

Born of dark and cold and snow in the marrow of the northeast's longest night, Howl comes in on wailing winds with winter-weary eyes burning holes in sunless shadows. In its darkened depths our inner voids are warmed.

I held this one longer than I should

Appearance: Black as night, doesn't even give a ruby edge when back lit. Holds a white halo of foam and a thin cover.

Smell: Mild searthy hop, cleanly fermented malt, roasted barley, a hint of smoke.

Taste: Some stout flavors, the roasted barley in particular, a slight almost lactic milk stout sweetness, then goes very clean and balanced. Finishes with a light chalky dryness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, slick texture, firm but moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice sipper! Good flavor kept in check, balanced, easy to enjoy.
