There's a creaminess to this that brings to mind chocolate milk, but it's as if someone dropped a few blackened hazelnut shells into the glass. Hops playing a supporting role here, in the best of senses. Great stuff.

Faint roast, light grains, floral hop on the nose. It pours brilliant black under a 2” light tan tinted white foam cap. The bubbles are very fine and the cap is persistent and lacy. The beer offers a very creamy palate with light roast flavors, a slight sweetness from dark sugars but the overall sense is dry with a slight grainy astringency of the finish. There is some hard to identify fruit in the background. An interesting oscillation occurs in the finish between a very light crystal malt type sweetness and a base malt to unmalted barley astringency that is actually quite pleasant. There is enough bitterness to balance the malt but it is not out of bounds. Nicely balanced.
