22oz bomber bought on sale from Binny's

A: Pours out thick, as thick a beer I've seen in some time. Puts KBS to shame in terms of viscosity if that counts for anything. Black as motor oil and topped with a decent sized, half and inch worth of bubbly, chocolaty brown head.

S: Pretty seriously hopped, reminds me of Nightstalker. Pineapple and other fancy tropical and sweet fruits

T/MF: Softly carbonated with the massive doses of hops providing a lot of traction on the tongue that otherwise would be lacking in this beer. Taste is sort of difficult to describe for me, other than that I can say it seems like a more abrasive Nightstalker, has sort of the character of a black IPA in the beginning stages then moving into licorice/baker's chocolate bitterness. Given a bit of time to warm this beer takes on a sweeter character, a bit of a buttery chocolate, maybe a bit of coffee and cream mixed in with this unrelenting hoppiness.

D: Hmmmm, not really sure how I feel about this beer. The hops seem to be a bit too forward and appear to cover up the "stoutier" aspects of this beer. Things just are not gelling with me like I would have liked it too. Can't really say I'd give this beer another chance, even if to cellar, unless it was on sale again. I will say one thing about the beer though, it certainly don't feel as big as it portends to be.
