Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
This pours black with a thick tan head. Nice malty aromas of sweet chocolate, coffee, and hops is reminiscent of a stout. I can taste a mild malt backbone that starts surprisingly clean and drinkable before a harsh, moderately bitter hop finish that lingers extensively with an aspirin-like bitterness. Malt character when detectible is very mild chocolate and coffee. The malt profile is nicely subdued as it should be in this style, but the hop flavors need to shine and in this case are a bit one-dimensional.
