2014 Vintage 6.8%

Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate/cola brown with two fingers of frothy light mocha head. Excellent horizontal lines of lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Roasted malts, cocoa, earthy and citrus hops, citrus rind.

Taste - Upfront roasted malts and bitter cocoa, followed up by the earthy and citrus hops that linger with bitterness into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-full bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall - An excellent Cascadian dark ale by Deschutes Brewery. Hits all the marks in terms of style with roasted malts and an earthy/citrus hop profile. I like the the hops held off until the finish, allowing the malts to showcase their roasted flavour. A real hit.
