What the brewers say

“German malt and just the right amount of hops to create an ideal balance.”

What our panel thought

“Light-roast coffee and strawberry ribbon candy in the nose; like Neapolitan ice cream. Blurs into stout territory—fairly rich and full-bodied. Pleasant and complex malt character, but a bit roast-heavy, with a lingering sweetness to wrap it up. Balanced mouthfeel that leans sweet, yet the bitterness keeps it restrained.”

What our editors thought

“Woody hops and roasty malt in the nose. Sweet latte in the sip, with creamy roast and unsweetened chocolate that finishes a bit soft.”
