Best Quote During Tasting
If their pants are that tight, they have an agenda.
|Aroma - Big hops actually come out first as pine, resin and a little grassy. They bring some alcohol aroma with them also and the malts are actually kind of hard to find but they are there as chocolate with no roast.|
|Appearance - It pours an opaque black with a tightly bubbled tan head that floats atop the beer the entire time you're drinking, leaving behind great lacing.|
|Flavor - The hops and alcohol are big right up front but it's pretty darn nice, I must say. The big pine needle and resin are matched by slight chocolate and even slighter roastiness.|
|Mouthfeel - Carbonation is high and the body is medium so it's a little thinner than I would hope for the style.|
|Overall Impression - I was super surprised when I saw the reviews for this one on Untappd. The hops were such a welcome addition to this beer. It wasn't too sweet, it wasn't too hoppy, it was a very nice and balanced beer with a big hop profile. I wish I had more because this would definitely be a beer to drink after a long day at work.|
|Aroma - Hops hit hard at first with pine and citrus at the forefront. The dark malt backbone consists of chocolate, coffee roast, and some nuttiness.|
|Appearance - Deep brown verging on black with a thin tan head that lingers for ages.|
|Flavor - Very similar to the flavor with pine and citrus once again leading the way, followed by the sweet and bitter chocolate notes. The roastiness goes nicely with the bitterness from the hops. With the resin from the hops, it reminds me of a chocolate/citrus edible you might find in Denver.|
|Mouthfeel - The body is a bit thinner than the taste. However, the carbonation hides it pretty well.|
Overall Impression - I received this beer from a new beer friend I made on a beer it forward style group. He gave me this after I gave him his winning beer. It was a really nice gesture, and one I hope to repeat when I'm lucky enough to win beer. It's always nice to have a solid beer that isn't available in our area. Thanks Michael!
