Nethergate Old Growler

500 mL bottle. I have a feeling that this came from Green’s in Columbia, SC, USA.
Excellent black colored pour with super red highlights and wonderful lace. Head is a mocha colored film that sits on the surface of the beer.
Nose has a really obvious malty, licorice note that is very strong fro the style and the ABV. Surprisingly potent.
Tastes are quintessential for the style. VERY, very light smoke, plenty of malts and a sweet undertone. The beer is very dry especially in the finish. Surprisingly so. It actually leaves a small coating on the teeth.
This beer has a Black Country mild feel about it and it reminds me a one particularly desperate summer when I found myself in Keele, Stoke-on -Trent and Newcastle-Under-Lyme.
Extremely drinkable and delicious. Good stuff.
