BKS Artisan Ales Rockhill & Locust
What the brewers say
English style dark mild ale.
What our panel thought
Brilliant amber-ruby in color with an off white head. Rich cherry laces with sweet caramel malt notes in the nose. Light bitterness, with very low hop flavor. Chocolate comes across almost milky in the taste, accentuated by a creamy mouthfeel. Toasted caramel notes, light astringency, medium finish, boosted by medium plus carbonation. A malt lover's dream, almost decadent in nature but easy to drink and even easier to enjoy.
What our editors thought
Soft nutty aroma with notes of tea. The flavor wavers between nutty and lightly fruity with an over-roasted nut bitterness that amplifies the savory element. Dry, and remarkably characterful.
