3rd Street Brewhouse
Pale, Caramel, Munich, Roasted, Black
German and US (Magnum, Hersbrucker, Amarillo, Cascade)
Not listed but I'm going to guess Wyest 1056 American Ale
Pours a dark black color with almost two fingers of ivory head that had very good retention before settling to a thick cap. There was a moderate amount of lacing is left down the side of the glass.
I initially get chocolate, burnt caramel, toffee, a little bit of molasses with a subtle hints of citrus orange and grapefruit from the hops.
Just like it smells. There is a good balance of dark malts and spicy hops. The dark roasted malts add a big taste of chocolate, burnt caramel, toffee, and a bit of molasses. There is a good mix of spicy and mildly bitter hops that give it the earthy, pine resin, and some light citrus notes.
Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Starts out sweet and finishes pretty dry.
A pretty good dark ale. Veers more towards a hopped up porter or stout than a black IPA. It is full of flavor and is easy to drink.
