This brew fills the glass with a very dark amber hue and a frothy, beige crown. Bursting with sweetness, roasted almond and soft molasses aromas welcome the nose. Black Noddy’s flavor nudges the tongue with toffee and roasted malt notes that deepen into coffee and chocolate tastes. The hops carouse with peppery flavors and assertive bitterness. Buckbean’s brew has a dry finish and a thin body; its alcohol is subdued and the carbonation is soft.
