I’ve had this beer on tap for about a month; it has been really enjoyable!
- The Basics
- 1.042 s.g., 1.012 f.g., 3.9% abv, 31 IBU, 42 SRM
- Clear, black beer, with a fine tan head that is moderately persistent. It looks awesome!
- The aroma has a prominent roasted character, with a tiny hint of chocolate behind that.
- The beer has a forward roasted/slightly burnt character with a dark coffee tone, as expected from the roast barley. The hop bitterness is smooth, in the background behind the malt.
- The beer is fairly light bodied with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry, but smooth.
- Would I brew this again?
- I think so! It’s a very drinkable beer, both in terms of its flavor/mouthfeel as well as the low alcohol. I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. If I were to make any minor changes, I would probably up the body just a little (it can tend to slightly thin after awhile). I might also experiment with a version that has more chocolate malt, to richen the profile and make it a bit more complex than just roast barley.
