Notes/Commercial Description:
A blend of specialty malts gives this beer a velvety mouthfeel with roasted notes and a hint of chocolate, balanced by a subtle hop aroma. Hard to describe but easy to drink, Harpoon Dark is rich in character and light on the palate.

35 IBU

Arguably my favorite offering from Harpoon.

Brown in appearance with a light brown, billowing head.

Smell is great - definite roasted malts and breadiness, and almost a bit of smoke.

Taste is nice - definitely not as rich as the smell would suggest which makes this one drinkable. Roasted dark chocolate, bread, and a slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium in thickness.

Overall a nice example of a dark ale.
