SweetWater Brewing Dank Tank Ghoulash

My buddy Ed brought me back a bottle of SweetWater Brewing Company Dank Tank Ghoulash from Atlanta. This beer is a “double black double dry hopped double India Pale Ale,” or a beer with a lot of doubles. The beer pours a black color with a lofty and frothy beige-colored head that leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate, lemon, pine, spruce, pepper, and molasses. The taste is dry and bitter and is very hop-forward, bringing pine, lemon, and spruce flavors right up to the front of the beer. It finishes with a dark chocolate flavor that has hints of caramel, molasses, and toasted malts. The after taste lets pepper and lemon linger on the tongue. The alcohol content is 8.5% ABV. If you are looking for a beer that is dark and chocolaty and hoppy and bitter at the same time, this is the beer for you. It really presents its dryness, and the slight hint of citrus is quite enjoyable.
