fiulijn (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle from CoOp Bellingham, WA
The bottle is gushing a bit, quite a rare event for American beers and for this style; it has therefore a very large head, but rather compact, beige colored, while the beer is dark brown nearing black; nice lace too. The aroma is a nice combination of black coffee and resiny hops, with an impression of citrus fruits. The mouthfeel is dry and smooth; good flavor of roasted malts, without excessive burnt character, and well integrated with a quite strong bitterness, and loads of soft hop resins and hop oils; long final.
Very drinkable; excellent example for the style.
