Now ratcheted up on their new brewery and popped into cans, Scratchy Vinyl pours just shy of jet black with a light brown head. It's evident plenty of hops have been squeezed into this one, in which earthiness meets a touch of grassiness, some floral hop action and a smidgen of pine, while there's a hint of roast and even a bit of smokiness too. The roast comes through a little more prominently to taste but there remains a smattering of grassy, floral hops, with dried fruits and coffee rolling in at the finish.
Were it vinyl not beer, you might go with: "Smooth notes and melodies intertwine before a hardcore rock 'n' roll encore."
