What a fantastic beer.
Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head.
Smell is all citrus/piney hops but with a sweet smelling twist to it.
Is this its own style? Imperial Roggen American Black Ale?
The taste is just like the smell. A sugary sweetness starts things out but the mild hop bitterness quickly takes over and lingers.
Overall a really enjoyable beer and I am just a few sips into the bottle. This is worth the price and I will most likely look for it again.
