Appalachian Brewing Company Extra Special Bitter
I went to Appalachian Brewing Company after receiving an email from them about a one-off batch of Extra Special Bitter. The beer pours a dark brown color with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma consists of toasted malts and chocolate. The taste is dry and has a heavy helping of toasted malts. There is a little chocolate accent and a dry bitter finish. The alcohol content is not posted online, but I would guess it to be around 6.0% ABV. As a bitter, I thought that Appalachian Brewing Company's very was decent and followed the model as to how the beer should taste without being overly bitter.
