closey22 (1496) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Brown with red hilites and a thick bubbly beige head; aroma is distinctly hoppy with roasty toasty malt notes and hints of sweet chocolate; flava is rich and complex with blend of hops and roasted malt with some hints of cedar when swished; feels medium with strong lively foamy fizz; finishes long and strong with balanced malt tang and hoppy bitter slightly dry; from start to finish an excellent beer!
