Beer Tasting: Pressure Drop Pitt the Elder

Here's a beer that I think got very limited distribution. I picked this bottle up at the Cock Tavern but I don't recall seeing it anywhere else. The beer pours deep, oily black-brown with a moderate, rich mocha head. The aroma is quite dynamic. The elderflower punches through with its green pepper notes, then you’ve also got well roasted malts, milk chocolate and hints of tangy, ripened dark cherries. The flavor carries on nicely, with moderate sweetness, a bit more spicy elderflower, ripe green pepper, silky chocolate and toasted bread. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation, the feel of this beer is spot on. It finishes lightly oily with mellow earthy bitterness, ripe berries, milky chocolate, soft roast, florals notes and subtle chocolate cake. Wonderful stuff. Really well integrated. One of Pressure Drop’s most mature constructions to date. (Score: 3.9/5.0)
