I must say, I’m really impressed with the two Flat Earth beers I’ve sampled. Cygnus cost about $4 for the giant bottle of brew, and it was great. Dark, tasty, no aftertaste. At this point, the beers are so good, if they insist the earth is flat, I’m inclined to believe them.
I enjoyed it quite a bit. It’s a dark, heavy beer that isn’t too dark or too heavy. It’s like an oatmeal stout for pussies. And sometimes, I’m a pussy.
It’s smooth, it’s a little creamy, it’s a little sweet. If it were just a tad less hoppy and a tad sweeter, it’d be perfect for me. I like that I can taste hops, but they’re not overwhelming. The tall bottle is the perfect quantity for me for an evening. Looks beautiful in a pint glass.
