Mother Earth "Dark Cloud"
Mother Earth Brewing Company - Kinston, North Carolina USA
Dunkel 9ABV 5.1%)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a clear medium brown with a enormous (4+ finger) light tan frothy head that lasted throughout and had some excellent spotty sheets of lace.

The aroma was of a roasted dark bread malt, a pine hop and a musty yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee and dark fruit (raisins and prunes).

The taste was nice and malty with a touch of toffee sweetness and a hint of chocolate from the beginning then proceeded to become mildly bitter and hoppy with a note of coffee and just a light presence of dark fruit towards the end. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow with a nice roasty hoppiness left lingering on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was a shade or two under medium in body with a nice dry texture and an almost fizzy carbonation.

Overall an impressive roasty brew. Sweet, bitter and quite malty, it had it all going on...
