Fiction Beer Alternate Present

Aroma: “Moderate chocolate with roast and toasty malt. Rich Munich-type malt in there to support overall, and there’s a very light touch of slight smoke. A faint hops note loiters deep in the background.”

Flavor: “More rich and toasty malts with hints of coffee, smoke, and bitter chocolate. Moderate sweetness morphs into a moderately low bitterness.”

Overall: “A pleasant, roast-forward beer with hints of smoke but a slight sweetness that softens any possible rough edges. Nice malt character and malt complexity, but still very clean—that body doesn’t linger in the finish, and it closes in a crisp and refreshing way. A tasty beer overall.”
