Taste Notes

What is the Enigma Ale? A pitch black beer with a great hop aroma and has a light drinkabilty. A mixture of a porter and an IPA, the Engima Ale has the light aroma of an IPA with the light herbal and citrus notes, but then as you drink, you find the chocolate, coffee and a bit of smokiness that reminds you of a good porter.
