Magic Hat Howl
From Magic Hat – Born of dark and cold and snow in the marrow of the northeast’s longest night, HOWL comes in on wailing winds with winter-weary eyes burning holes in sunless shadows. In its darkened depths out inner voids are warmed.
Magic Hat – Magic Hat Howl – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 4.6% abv. From Ray in MA.
Appearance: Pours a black with a tan 1/8 inch layer of foam.
Aroma: Roasted malt, coffee and wet dog.
Taste: Burnt and roasted malt, finishing with a modest level of spicy hops.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.
Overall: Flavorful, and a step up from a pale lager in the character department. On the other hand, it was very one dimensional, and didn’t inspire thoughts of winter or the holidays.
