Notes/Commercial Description:
Night Wheeler is a dark black lager with bold roasted malt and faint citrus hop aromas. Robust flavors of burnt cocoa and roasted espresso barely give way to some mild orange and grapefruit hoppiness. Night Wheeler’s light body and crisp nature allows for a showcased bitterness that seems delayed at first, but builds to a powerful finish.

Bottle shared by Adam. Thanks man.

Dark brown cola body with a tan head. Aromas of cocoa, coffee, roast, char, tangy grapefruit. An interesting beer. Not all flavors coalesce, but still pretty tasty. Chocolate flavors throughout. Another interesting beer from Short's.
