Review - Pizza Port Brewing Company's Old Viscosity Ale
"Definitely not your Dad's Wimpy 30 weight. An enormous & luscious dark ale that's as opaque and dark as the most well used motor oils." -- Pizza Port Brewing Company
The Old Viscosity poured a tiny light brown head with out any lacing. The head was very small and fully diminishing, and thhe black body had a very thick density. The nose detected a moderate amount of malt presence with hints of very sweet molasses. It was quite pleasant to the nose, but a strong alcohol presence was noted. The taste buds were not surprised with the moderately sweet initial flavor, but were rather surprised with the light bitter finished that hung around for a while. Creamy and with a full body, the Old Viscosity had light astringent characteristics with very soft carbonation.
Reviewer's notes: As you can see with the scoring, we were quite pleased with this offering by Pizza Port. It is a very strong selection and we recommend giving this a try...with caution.
