From the tap list of Longship Brewery is an American Dark Ale called “Abomination”, with an ABV of 6.9%.
Appearance: Reddish-brown/chestnut, slight haze, medium tan colored frothy head, clusters of fast-rsing small bubbles and occasional medium-size bubbles within the head. Good head retention & lacing.
Taste: Sweet milk-chocolate malt balls & caramel front, dark chocolate covered raisin middle, moderate herbal tea & tangerine-like medium sweet finish, with a hint of a rich English Toffee aftertaste, and mildly detectible alcohol warmth.
Smell: Very aromatic sweet toasted chocolate caramel macaroon with raisin and a hint of tangerine.
Mouthfeel: Light, soft body low astringency medium carbonation with a medium dry finish.
Humans, here is a great beer for watching movies! It started as a reminder of my favorite Milk-Chocolate Malted Milk Balls, and turned into Dark Chocolate Covered Raisins, and yet held an awesome hop/malt balance throughout the serving, with a subtle, lingering finish of tangerines. It would go well with rich, roasted meats such as lamb, pork or roast beef.
