Old Dominion Brewing Co., 9% abv
Aroma: Dark roasted malts sit lightly behind a strong espresso bitterness.
Appearance: Very dark in color, even in front of a light. There is a very light carbonation, barely noticeable. It raised a strong tan head that fell to a bubbly layer.
Flavor: Very nice malty flavors. There is a smokey, roasty flavor, followed up by a nice coffee finish. The flavors blend well, and present an excellent brew.
Mouthfeel: Very heavy on the tongue, with a light carbonation. The malts sit well with this brew.
Overall Impression: This is a great beer, with the best of many worlds. It has a great malty flavor, delicious coffee flavor, very high alcohol, and a bombshell on the label. (Jess picked this one up for me.)
As I said, Jess picked this one up, both because of what is it, and because of the label!
