BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Twin Leaf Brewery
North Carolina, United States

Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer you could drink all day and all night. Dark amber in color. A delectably complex malt profile reminiscent of bread, toast, and biscuits, with hints of caramel, chocolate, and fruity esters. Perfectly balanced bitterness from the earthy, floral hops. Take one sip and another is sure to immediately follow… and another… and another…

Murky brown with a light tan head. Caramel, cocoa and brown sugar on the nose. The taste is chocolate and sweet malt with a nice finishing bitterness. Nice carbonation. Very good ESB.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, amber coloring, with a thin, off-white halo of head. Nose of sugary caramel, roasted notes, biscuits, and candied sugar. Flavors of chocolate, caramel, dark cherry, and subtle bitter notes. Smooth, slick bodied, with a tangy and bitter aftertaste. Smoked and sugary, with a slick, smooth finish. Balanced and solid.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: dark amber with a nice thick head that lasts a while.

Smell: there is a light bready aroma here.

Taste: caramel, bread, a hint of nuts, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: light-medium in body. Lightly crisp throughout.

Overall: a real easy to drink ESB that hits the spot.
