12 oz bottle poured into a nonic
Pours near pitch black with a finger of off white foam. Aroma is predominately spicy hops, with some raisiny malt notes as well.
First sip is very smooth, minimal bitterness or hop bite at all. Slight metallic twang on the back end. Also surprisingly dry, without much malty sweetness. There is a sneaky bitter flavor that catches up to your palate a few seconds after you swallow. Flavor is lacking a bit. Hops are not assertive, and I get just a kiss of roasted malt.
Overall, not bad. Quite drinkable due to the dry mouthfeel. One of Magic Hat's better offerings, in my opinion.
