Innsmouth Olde Ale: Lovecraft Series Chapter 1
Narragansett started a new series named after the "Father of Modern Horror" H.P. Lovecraft. Chapter 1 celebrates the story of Innsmouth Olde Ale and its brewing origins. You can read the story about both below. The purple pounder can has some spooky art done by Jason Eckhardt. It appears to be a sign in front of the Innsmouth Tavern on a gloomy and stormy night. 7% alcohol.
Malty, raisiny aroma. Malty flavors to start too, mostly sweet raisins and brown sugar. Also a bit herbal. A bitter nip comes toward the end though never overcoming the initial sweetness. A little thin; low carbonation. Was OK though I wasn't a huge fan. Looking forward to Chapter 2 though.
