Malmo - Black pour with tan head. Roasted and sweet malty with notes of chocolate and coffee, some toffee, caramel, fudge, medium body, roasted malty finish.
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of big roasted coffee and dark malt notes with a touch of dark chocolate and booze. Taste follows, big and roasty, boozy chocolate, a hint of smoke, fairly bitter. It's a decent imperial stout. GarrettB (1695) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 25, 2017
February 7th, 2015 - Hess's truly dark brews are few and far between. They seem more inclined to ambers and hoppy brews and such, but the Umbrix has been a staple personage at the tasting room for some time. With a dark, broody body and a botanical scent, it suggests something more like a coffee stout. I also detect some raw pumpkin (off note?) and some cumin, too, which helps to disguise that squashy, pumpkin guts scent. The flavor is more dry (could be the rye agent) with a nice creamy palate to enjoy. In many respects it tastes similar to a black IPA, with an assertive hop business in the background. The alcohol is also appropriately assertive, and while the overall take is that the flavor seems a little chaotic, it is also tasty and enjoyable. Heidbummer (986) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2017
