Golden Ticket Black Emperor NZ Edition (330ml Bottle)
Return of the Black Emperor, this time with all NZ hops. Same malt and yeast, but with Southern Cross and NZ Cascade. Drier, a little stronger, but still black and delicious** This beer (GT Black Emperor) is bottled in a limited run especially for the Beer Store and therefore does not have a label.
Dark brown to black. Medium body. Roasted malt evident. Low sweetness in aroma and flavor. Low to medium bitterness. Low bitterness from roast malt. Hop flavor and aroma, "noble-type" OK. No fruitiness, esters.
