Jet black and characterful, the resinous hops and carbonation Howling Hops’ impy stout give this an amazingly smooth finish for a hard-hitting 11 percenter.
Look: Fighting Ale pours like the blackest of nights with a mid-brown head that quickly dissipates leaving lots of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: A blast of resinous hops in perfect balance with roasted malts and dark chocolate.
Taste: It is well-bodied with a good level of carbonation giving it a lovely mouthfeel and helping the hops shine against the solid roasted malt body.
Verdict: Where did they hide the alcohol? This is supremely easy drinking for an 11.5% ABV beer and we love it.
