Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JohnnieNepal on 09-16-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

L - Wow, this is dark. I expected some light to get through, but none come through even when held to the light. Several inches of tan head quickly faded away leaving patches of the side of the glass.

S - I am not a fan of the smell. It smells like burnt popcorn and citrus airfreshener.

T - Speaking of burnt popcorn, the taste starts out that way with hints of citrus. The burnt popcorn flavor just keeps coating my tongue until that is all I can taste.

M - Medium

O - This is my first session Indian black lager. This is not a good introduction to the style.

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.
