The initial aromas are all herb, with a low floral and fruity hops aroma underneath. I didn’t perceive much in the way of grist aromatics until I took my first sip, and then it all really came together. The rich malts lingered on the tongue and the savory herbs filled the nose, with peppery phenols accenting everything beautifully.
This beer has a nice bittersweet chocolate and coffee profile, with just enough hop presence to offset any cloying sweetness. Unfortunately Dirty Hands Brewing closed their doors in 2016, but their legacy can live on.
