Nice aroma of dark malts mixed with a strong hop sweetness. String dark malt bite with a coffee like roastiness. Hop bitterness wipes the palate clean with a gusto, leaving the faintest remnants of sweet dark malts way in the background. Crisp and refreshing for such a dark beer.
Nice solid hop aroma. Taste has a slight twinge of sweetness to it, slightly puckering the taste buds. Good flavor of dark malts in the background- recognizable but not overpowering. Finish is mix of nice hop flavor combined with yeast taste. Very refreshing and flavorful overall.
Nice aroma strongly of fruity hops, with dark malt in the background. Taste is malt forward, mixed with hop flavors. Not a strong dark malt flavor, but aftertaste is nice smooth dark malt flavor, without a harsh bite.
Faint dark malt aroma and nice hop aroma. Taste is soft and smooth with a nice mellow hop taste and subdued black malt taste in the background. Goes down very smooth. Had in Mexico City craft beer bar, from Mexican brewery.
Dark malt and hop sweetness aroma blended together. Clear dark malt taste with a bit of hop fruitiness buried in the background. Aftertaste is one of clean mild dark malt fading slowly. A lot of flavor but not a lot of bite on anything.
Clean dark malt aroma like a stout. Slightly sweet, crisp flavor of dark malt and carbonation. No real hop presence to speak of, perhaps some hiding in the background behind the malt aftertaste that slowly fades away. Seems to slightly mellow the dark malt bite. Very full flavor for a session ale.
4 out of 5 Stars.
