AirForceHops (4684) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Draft @ When Pigs Fly. August 14, 2012. Poured deep black with near no head at all into a chalice. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits and some chocolate. The flavor is complex with layers of roasted malt. Semi-sweet chocolate, followed by licorice. The finish has a light hint of smoke. Toward the backside there is a faintest bit of a hop note to edge off the sweetness. Notes of deep, burnt coffee. The carbonation seems real soft. I wouldn’t call the body thin but, it isn’t full or even medium by any means. This is a sipper for sure, although I can’t directly pick up any alcohol. It went great with my meal and was a very tasty treat.
