Hop Knight India Black Ale
Mouthfeel: Really thick body with a low level carbonation, but enough to allow the hop complexities and encourage a focus on what the subtle flavors of this beer have to offer. Dry and a bit resinous at the finish, and an ever-remaining grassy flavor.
Overall Impression: Decent at best, though I probably wouldn't seek this beer out again. I felt the stale hop smell was a big deterrent. I did however enjoy the development that came once the beer warmed - more maltiness and sweet flavors emerged among the hop backdrop.
