Steve’s Beer Advent Calendar Day 7 – Dive Bomb – Powell Brewery

Vancouver, BC’s Powell Brewery, Dive Bomb, a dark ale.

It pours an almost perfectly opaque black, held to the light there are deep mahogany highlights. The head is a nice light khaki with very fine bubbles.

The nose is almost leathery with a slight cola note.

The flavours include beautifully bitter cocoa powder, dark toffee and burnt caramel. It is very dry, giving a champagne impression. The body is dense but the very fizzy carbonation makes feel light.

Commercial description:

This far Ale is surprisingly light and refreshing and sessionable. Flavours of caramel, toffee, chocolate and nuts are complimented with holding hops that add just the right amount of bitterness and a slight floral aroma.
