Total black body except for a laser line of ruby along the bottom of the glass. Three fingers of rocky semi-dark tan mixed size micro bubbles. Good thick lace coating the glass as he head breaks down to stable top.

Aroma of cocoa powder, raisins, bread offers an inticing invitation.

Taste features coffee, with a bit of milk in it, chocolate, raisins. Smooth hop nudge more than a nip. Good balance. Finishes with earthy hops riding chocolate syrup.

Nice smooth mouthfell, more than medium but not quite slick and thick. Chewy though.

A pleasant size stout, bigger than many, not an imperial. Seek.

Discovered Sixpoint on a podcast called the Brewery Show on my BlackBerry and the recent posts about 16oz cans coming soon!!! Had on tap @ Blue Dog in Lansdale, PA.

Great carbonation and dark chocolate brown color. Lacing was absolutely beautiful and head was retentious. Smell is outstanding, bittersweet chocolate and caramel. The flavor reminds me of a dark chocolate snickers bar. Very rich, excellent caramel profile. Hops shine accordingly. Smooth mouthfeel and would have had loved to try it on nitro.

Purchased as a single from Wine and Beer westpark in Glen Allen, VA - belgian flute glass

Pours an amazing dark brown with a fat head, everlasting head that clings for dear life down the side of the glass. Very nice looking beer.

Smells roasty and sweet but not overbearing

Taste is fantabulous, very smooth with a roasty bite. Very quaffable. Feels great on the palate, i coulnd't ask for anything more.

Overall this is a brew I will buy again, very good am stout that i could drink all day.

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass is a black, opaque beer much like the color of a black hole in outer space. On top is a very thick rocky beige head that is almost brown. The head retention is very good and nice thick lacing is left behind.

Aroma: Well there is quite a hop aroma grapefruit notes in the front. Dark bread with a touch of rye and roasted malts. Bits of molasses are scattered here and there. Figs and other dark fruits are towards the end.

Taste: Vanilla, bourbon notes, Hops and malts are very much roasted dark. Only a twinge of citrus on the palate along side a hop bite. Dark rye bread wisps with a touch of dryness.

Notes: Such a dam tasty beer very hearty. Cheers.
