Beer Camp #12 September 2009 ABV 6.9 IBU 63
Edge of Darkness is deep chestnut brown color. The light roast continues in the flavor and feels relatively dry (drier than the apparent extract would suggest!), but with a nice malty sweetness as well. Hop character is slightly piney and slightly spicy, but not overpowering. Definitely an assertive hop character, but balanced into the roast malts nicely. A nice, big hop bitterness along with a pleasant amount of dark malt roast character in the finish along with significant alcohol warming to the back of the throat.

(Draught at Ft. Worth Flying Saucer) Captain Keith describes this beer as an Imperial Wet Hopped Brown Ale.
Pours clear brown with nice creamy head. Nose of bitter hops and cocoa. Tastes like roasted malt, bitter hops and a creamy body. Nice and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer Fort Worth. Wet Hopped. Pours a clear mahogany brown with a sticking tan head. Good lace. Aroma is quite nice and hoppy (floral and citrus) with a decent amount of chocolate. Taste is really hoppy (India brown?) with some bitterness and a nearly windex like note (not as unpleasant as it sounds). Some burnt brown sugar and dark caramel malts backing. Lively bubbles. Nice.
