16oz CANquest, great dane imperial pint
Motor oil - quickly dissipated mocha ring - serious business here. A pretty simple, but well done stout - licorice, smoke, charred malt, some leafy pine hops. This stuff is tasty enough - its a rare occasion to even find a standard stout these days, so this was a nice change of pace

Enjoyed this stout in downtown Austin outside on a patio deck in beautiful weather. Might bias me in favor of this beer. :)
Appearance - Extremely dark opaque; continuous, white/tan head; about two fingers of head initially.
Smell - Very hard to place; can't smell much; slightly citrus-like and hoppy.
Taste - Very hoppy for a stout; diesel-like hoppiness; strong aftertaste; bitter chocolate/malt taste; burnt; roasted; hoppy.
Mouthfeel - Bitter but still relatively comfortable on the palate; sharp aftertaste after hops.
Overall - A little too much hops for a stout (in my personal opinion) but still tasty; probably wouldn't seek this beer out again but I still appreciate what it is.

3.76/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Very, very dark brown/black with highly-retentive yet slightly small head, even with a full pour. Lacing is excellently-tiered
Scent: Chocolate malt, blackened coffee beans, astringent pine hops, light spruce bark, bitter and resinous, some orange and various citrus here and there
Taste: Incessant in its delivery of roasted and charred malts supported by a complex and varied hop profile. Satisfying, to say the least
Mouthfeel: Fairly full-bodied but can seem watery and even too hoppy, especially when it’s colder so I’d let this sit after a long refrigerated period
Drinkability: Excellent; the dry-hop lends some astringency but it’s so well-tempered by the malt bill that it finishes quite smooth
Overall: This should probably be a regular beer for Sixpoint; given their penchant for bucking trends, perhaps it should seek to be released in the Spring months to change up styles a bit? Regardless, this is a very tasty beer that features SP's pension for disregarding style rules in favor of brewing excellence.

tallboy can poured into a beer stein.
best before date on the bottle of the tallboy stating: May 2013.
Appearance: Black bodied beer with 3 fingers of thick light brown colored head. It looks exactly like the head formed on top of a rootbeer float. Great staying power and thick lacing all over the glass. The head never dies on this beer... a thick cap remains until the glass is empty.
Smell: roasted malt profile. Its fairly hoppy nose that matches and might even over power the malts. Its lots of pine notes with a grapefruit compliment.
Taste: Yeah this beer balances out really nicely. The malts start things off; they are roasty with a hint of sweetness. I would say mild coffee, mild chocolate, and mild molasses notes. A really nice malt profile! The hops are not really bitter for 68 IBU. Pine and grapefruit, but mostly pine. Everything blends together nicely in the finish, with a mildly bitter pine finish that lingers for just the right amount of time.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Creamy and subtle carbonation. Just right for this beer. A nice flavorful yet drinkable stout!
Overall: This beer is very well balanced and flavorful. Not alot of flavors in this beer, but it got everything it needs, trust me. This is probably my new favorite Sixpoint beer to date. Bonus points as always for being craft beer in a can! This beer seems to hover indecisevely between a hoppy american stout and an american black ale. But who cares its a really good beer!

4.6/5 rDev +21.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: A deep cherry red cola color. Imagine a Dr. Pepper that has been concentrated down to be a bit darker. Pours out with one finger of head with decent lacing.
S: A huge smell of piney/resiny hops and some biscuit. A small hint of the darkness from the malt pokes through.
T: Everything seen in the smell backed by roasted malts. A hint of coffee and booze in the background.
M: A mid/heavy body with somewhat light amount of carbonation.
O: For anybody who has tried Sixpoint's Resin DIPA, it is like a lighter version of that with a roasted malt background. Tough to rate because it is so unique. It isn't like traditional stout, but more like a black IPA. Overall, a great beer. Balanced in every way, and the dry hopping is incredible. Plus, Sixpoint cans are really cool.
