Big Shot

22 oz bottle.
Nice clarity om the pour to yield a red/bronze body. Some good, ice-cream dollop type head and some impressive lace. Solid looking.
Nose is a little soapy and reveals the larger than necessary hop character that follows.
Dry, cocoa notes and bakers chocolate with a dose of greenish hops that seem a bit out of place in the Brown category for me. Finishes with more dry notes. The chocolate comes back in the aftertaste.
A bit “green” for me, this beer gives a bit of a fresh hop presence when it really ought to be rounded out with a sweeter note IMO. A bit edgy and slightly too bitter for the style.
OK, looks good but he experience doesn’t quite hit it for me.
