Short’s Devil’s Lettuce

Dank hop aroma. Initial taste is hoppy in what I guess is “dank”. Not overly bitter, but lots of dank hop flavor that is quite intense. Not much aftertaste, which is impressive with as much hop flavor in the first taste. Quite flavorful. The ABV of 5.7% let’s you focus on the hop taste without being overwhelmed with maltiness.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

Dark Horse Reserve Special Black Ale

Dark roast malt aroma. Smooth initial taste with a sharp afterbite of malt darkness that’s a mix of dark chocolate and almost coffee (but not really ’cause I don’t like coffee). There is a strong hop flavor that then comes in, blended in with the malt darkness, and the whole thing finished very cleanly and dry. No real lingering aftertaste other than a mild smooth black malt flavor.

5 out of 5 stars.
