Aroma is resiny thick. First drink has a slight crispness of hop bite to it, followed by a caramel malt flavor that’s not too sweet, and a little dark tasting. Aftertaste liners with expressive malt flavors and edge of hop bitterness.
Bottle marked that it was brewed in Virginia brewery on 4/8/21, enjoy by 8/6/21. This review done on 7/8/21.
Thin head that fizzles down quickly. I can smell the dark makes and spice aroma with the glass sitting a foot away from my nose. Aroma up close is not as strong as I would’ve thought- nice mellow dark malts. Full flavor, with a zing of cinnamon spice cutting through the dark malts, then quickly disappearing. Aftertaste is fairly mild dark malt. The 8.1% ABV is hidden well, with no detectable alcohol burn.
I’ve had this before, but never made an official review. Reviewed here on 7/8/2020, bottled on 6/3/2020, so still fresh.
Notable aroma of hop bitterness and malt. Crisp bite of hop bitterness, decent malt flavor without caramel sweetness. Lingering hop bitterness that is notable but not overpowering. But still don’t venture here unless you definitely like hop bitterness!
Great aromas like sniffing a bag of hops. You can even get the aroma while holding the glass a good 6-8 inches from your nose. Phenomenal. Nice sweet hop bite that’s very flavorful and not bitter. A good chunk of caramel malt sweetness rushes in for attention, but generally gets pummeled back by hops flavor. Notable, but not overpowering hop flavor in the aftertaste that lingers a long time. Great beer, but I don’t think my taste buds could handle the onslaught of more than one.
Nice clean crisp hop aroma. Slightly sweet hop taste immediately backfilled by a nice malty Munich malt flavor. Great hop aromas and nice malty tasty smoothness. Almost like two different beer personalities.
Beautiful aroma of hops. Nice complex hop flavor, nothing harsh. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel, leaving hops flavor lingering. Very flavorful but not harsh at all. Again, I have to note how awesome it smells!
5 out of 5 stars.
Says bottled on 3/14/16 so it’s amazing the freshness expected, with just a little over a month shelf life. Nice aroma of fresh, sharp hops. Crisp hop bite with a bit of a sweet aftertaste that’s a bit tangy. If “dank” means halfway between resinous and fruity, that’s how I’d describe this.
4.5 Out of 5 stars.
Craft beer and homebrew from a Michigan perspective.
