Go ahead and read the story of H.P. and what to expect from this Chapter 3 salute. The can depicts what I called an elephant monster hugging the Providence Capitol building. Then I found out that nice monster was really Dread Cthulhu waking to devour the Rhode Island Statehouse. Illustration by local artist GunSho aka James Quigley. 8% alcohol.
Caramel aroma, straight up. Nice rich caramel flavors followed by an interesting toffee. Citrus orange, lightly zesty. Very spicy with a big hoppy bang.
Candied hops, sweet but with a great hoppy, bitter, spicy answer. A little astringent and alcy at the finish but I can overlook that. I liked it.
