Sweetwater "Dank Tank Fresh Sticky Nugs"
Sweetwater Brewing Company - Atlanta, Georgia USA
American Strong Ale (ABV 8%) (IBU 130)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky chestnut brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige rocky head that reduced after a short while to a few puddles and a medium collar of residue, letting forth some excellent sticky streaks of lace.

The aroma was of a dark bread malt, a moderate pine hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, dark fruit and a bit of citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was a little sweet and yeasty with a note of caramel early on, but got extremely hoppy very quickly with a big dose of citrus and a mild touch of dark fruit towards the end. The flavor lasted average duration after the swallow with a nice lightly sweet citrus hoppiness left to linger.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with as dry texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall a good and hoppy Strong Ale with a nice mild sweetness to it...
