Pounder. Best before 5/20/13. 69IBU Stout? Interesting.
Appearance: Dark cola color with hints of light shining through. Big frothy two finger tan head that lasts for the entire consumption. Levels of lace lingering after each drink. Fine looking beer. Sweet can.
Aroma: Roasted malt. Burnt almost. Hints of charcoal and chocolate. Pine.
Taste: Dark roasted malts up front with almost a hint of smokiness, like stale dark roast coffee. A little bit of milk chocolate sweetness. Finish is bitter piney hops with a bit of orange zest. Interesting. Comes off as a Black IPA rather than a stout with that much hops coming through. Ain't complainin' though.
Mouthfeel: This is where I get tripped up. It is a very drinkable easy going 6.3% stout. But as a stout, I feel like I want a bit more fullness and body. If I look at it from a Black IPA view, it's fantastic. Either way Medium body with soft carbonation. I'll just call it even between the styles, with the added bonus of being very drinkable.
Serving type: can
