A blend of malts give a sweetness and body usual with dark beers but full hopping allows the bitter flavor to come through.

From old tasting notes. Deep reddish brown color. Massive rocky tan head. Sweet brown sugar malt nose.mtasty bittersweet dark malt flavor hints at chocolate, currants and coconut. Wonderfully complex and flavorful.

Bottle at Chriso’ Blue Mountains of Virginia tasting. Smells of a sugar lined cardboard box. Not a huge amount of body, very old, some roasted malt. Just not very good. Aroma is frankly revolting.

22nd May 2010. ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting! (Early hours of the morning rating). Clear dark brown beer. Light creamy palate. Tired aged malt. A little chocolate. That’s it! Showing it’s age.

(Bottle) Pours dark brown with a light brown head. The aroma is of mild cocoa-like roast and a mild oxidation alongside light notes of fruits. Light acidic. The flavour is acidic and light fruity with some light cocoa notes. Bit sourish. Light bodied. This bottle was too old.
