3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An unnecessary nightcap on my first full day in Philly, drunk at some bar that I don’t have a prayer of remembering. Deep amber beer. Aroma is quite malty. Soft brown sugar sweetness with a kiss of treacle and light kettle caramelization. Hops are here and are earthy tasting, but this is very much a malt-dominated brew. Chewy toffeeish sweetness. It’s a pretty nice brew really. A touch of blackberry fruitiness that is quite subtle but that works well with these darker, toastier malts. A hint of molasses on the finish. This would make a nice session ale.
