Hello and welcome to the after dark edition of my annual Halloween double feature! Hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable night so far. Let’s take a quick look at my featured beverage this evening!
Beer Name: Doom Sauce
Brewery: Lord Hobo Brewing Company (Woburn, MA)
Style: Black Double IPA
Description: A darker take on the brewery’s popular Boom Sauce NEIPA,
Appearance: It poured to a deep black body topped by a bubbly light tan foam.
Smell: Light roasted malt with hints of citrusy bitterness.
Taste: Creamy, smooth dark mark swirled with citrus and tropical notes upfront. Keeps the malt backbone through mid-sip and ends with a lightly toasty and moderately hoppy finish
Mouthfeel: Medium, pleasantly smooth body with moderate carbonation
Hype: None. I didn’t even know this existed until a friend brought it over a few days ago. Talk about a pleasant surprise!
Overall: I really liked this one. It is everything one could want from the style and super smooth to drink. Black IPAs were kind of my thing when I first got into beer years ago and since the style has been out of favor for some time now, finding a really good one is a nice treat indeed. Grab this if you can!
