I had this on-tap at Max's during Baltimore Beer Week.

Appearance: The beer pours almost black with some red at the edges when the light hits the pour. There is a thin ring of light tan head on top of the pour.

Smell: I'm getting tons of slightly burnt roast and some mild hops. There is a sweetness behind the bitter flavors along with some dark chocolate.

Taste: The hops and burnt roast flavors clash a bit. There isn't much sweetness here to balance things out. There is just a touch of dark chocolate in the background. The finish is really bitter and roasty.

Mouthfeel: The body is just a bit on the thin side with full carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: The black IPA quality to this beer bothered me. I think strong hop and roast combinations need to be well thought out. Too intense for me, just alright.

On tap at Max's the other day.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is certainly intriguing in this beer, as I get the expected coffee and licorice, but with considerable smoke as well. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but with the smoke and licorice really dominating in this beer in a big way. It completely dries out the modest sweetness I get from the coffee and light malt, ultimatley to the point that I think it hurt this beer on the finish. Mouthfeel is at most medium bodied, with a long smoke, licorice and alcoholic finish.

An interesting beer, but not one that really works for me.

"A Hoppy American stout brewed with Cascade, Columbus, Centennial."

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured a massively dark brown (almost black) with a three finger dark tan head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, earth, earth hop, and subtle lemon zest. The flavor was of roasted malt, cream, dark chocolate, earth, and earth hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. When I heard this one was on tap I had to jump at the chance to try it. I’m actually glad that I did. Just about everything on this one was quite enjoyable. However, in the flavor, I found that the earthiness going on definitely dominated quite a bit of the subtleties going on here. Still though this was quite a good brew that no one should go without trying at least once. Tick.

Poured into a perfect pint. "Natasha Rocks America" on lable.

4.0 A: Black color. Two and a half fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is good with lots of lacing left.

3.75 S: Hoppy as hell. Floral, citrusy, piney, herbal, and earthy in that order. The hops pretty much overshadow everything else, but you can pick up on a solid roastiness, a touch of chocolate, and hints of rye. Not a huge fan of hoppy stouts, but this one at least smells good.

3.25 T: Like every other hoppy stout out there, the hops don't mesh well with the dark, roasty flavors. Jumble of roast, hop bitterness, citrusy hoppiness, chocolate, herb and flower, and rye. Everything is out of place with everything else. It's slightly more palatable than most hoppy stouts, so I gave it a minor boost.

3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Not as creamy as I'd like, which is a shame since it could easily be that way.

3.0 D: Not a huge fan. I want my hops in IPAs and my roasted barley in my stouts. I wish brewers would cut back on "being creative."

Served on-tap at Mikkeller Bar.

The appearance of this collaboration between Fano and Hoppin` Frog is black with a short tan colored head. This stout has a nose with coffee, pine, roasted malts and black licorice. Sipping on this in one of their smaller glasses and I taste chocolate, more roasted malts, hops, resin, citrus, mmm this is nice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a smooth, easy finish. This is a very nice beer and a great representation of a collaboration done well.

Poured from tap into pint at Avenue NOLA.they claim it as an Evil Twin "natasha does denmark" but this is what I found on BA. Please correct me if I'm wrong here.
Looks great. A deep brown color with a bit of tan head and lacing. Nice chocolate and roasted malt aroma with some slight hop. Taste is big time bitter roasted malts, some chocolate flavors. A bit over bitter but good. It is a great american stout. Dry, flavorful, body. Have one.

Midnight black body with a thin yet lasting light tan head. Deep chocolate and roasted grain aromas; a bit of spicy, minty smell, too. Big bittersweet chocolate flavor; strong bitterness; a bit of astringency at the finish; a twinge rye crispness and sting hiding in the background. Heavy bodied; smooth; semi-sweet finish.

Luscious and full-bodied stout. Nice balance of malt sweetness with an almost IPA-like hop bitterness. Perhaps it's the rye and hop combination that faintly resembles a bourbon-barrel character to things (I don't believe this beer was barrel aged), but whatever the case, there's a lot of pleasing nuance and depth to this stout.

a pitch black pour with 2 fingers of dark brown head (great retention), lots of sticky lacing. dark roasty aroma, toasted grains, dark chocolate, coffee beans, licorice, and grassy hops. the flavor profile and mouthfeel are reminiscent of a dry irish stout.. medium body with a dry finish, low carbonation, silky smooth going down. lots of roasty flavors in the profile, coffee, tobacco, chocolate, licorice, subtle grassy hops, belgian style yeast gives it a nice bready profile.

this is a solid stout overall, i wouldn't really call it an imperial stout as it says on the label, it's too low in abv for that, but the deliciousness of an imperial is there.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Espresso coffee bean black, a dark cream colored head recedes to a thick film. Light spots of lacing.

Aroma: Chocolate bars, oatmeal flakes, rye.

Taste: The dry chocolate presence really is amazing. A dry oatmeal cookie body comes after. There is a black licorice hidden underneath.

Mouthfeel: Dry, very dry but not heavy.

Overall: Rich oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. This beer is delicious, no flaws really.
