This beer is full of bold flavor. Citrusy hop nose is complimented by coffee like roast aroma. Firm bitterness gives way to a rich roast malt backbone that plays very well off the American hop flavors. Finishes long and roasty on the palate, reminiscent of a strong cup of coffee. Large amounts of dry hops give this beer a surprising fresh hop character that is an amazing counterpoint to the rich deep flavors of the chocolate malt and roast barley.
