$11 for a growl dog of this ? are you serious ? hell yeah... surprised my bro with this one tonight.
jet black (what the hell does that mean anyway, I'm too lazy too google it, you do it.. why is a jet black? is it jet ink? is it an allusion to the jets having a black future ? eh...)
fantastic lacing, perfect little pearls of carbonation stack up on each other like so much manufactured sea foam in a movie about beer, the head rolls with the tide and this refuses to look bad or have a favorite side of face to photo, damn, this is one nearly flawless looker.
piney hops, close your eyes and you will forget the darkness of this beer, the hops are dominant in this fresh batch, you have to work to get just a faint whiff of stout qualities, so honestly the nose is not much here but a nose does not always a beer make
obviously hoppy, there is the faint echo of a normal stout crying out underneath but mostly this is over the top hop but not over to the point of overkill (say that 10 times fast), some roasty flavors, some thicker feel.... it has glimpses of stout and has a good mouth feel
looking for an over hopped stout a bit more balanced than some ? ok.
to call this Diesel ?
meh, is this a bad or non enjoyable beer ? hell no
it drinks more like a dark APA (quote me now on a new style). I like it, but don't love it, it certainly straddles the style line precariously... definitely try this one though, especially for the price vs quality ratio offered.
