Holy wow this is fantastic. This beer is deceptively light-bodied, but has plenty of malty, chocolatey, toasty flavors. No hop presence aside from underlying bitterness. A tiny bit of floral hop aroma is almost hidden. There’s almost a milky flavor/feeling but it might be the texture. The beer finishes as powerfully as it starts with bread crust and a bit of fig/caramel. Fantastic, and a beer West Virginia can be proud of!
