12 ounce bottle, bottled on 12/29/14. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half tan head that stuck around for a little while. There's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, pine and citrusy (orange peel, grapefruit) hops, bittersweet chocolate, and a bit of coffee. The taste is pretty much the same as the aroma, but there's also some burnt/charred malt and dark breadiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I think this is a good hoppy stout, its definitely worth picking up! $10.99 a 4-pack.

On tap at Fat Heads Saloon in Pittsburgh, PA.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like a pretty hoppy stout, with pine, grapefruit, charcoal, chocolate, and roasted malt.

This is a pretty tasty little hoppy stout, a good amount of bitter chocolate and bitter pine are the dominant flavors here. None of the flavors clash, as can be found with beers like this. There's a little bit of dark fruit flavor as well.

This is medium bodied, with a creamy, full and rich mouthfeel. Very, very drinkable.

I definitely enjoyed this one, the criss-crossing flavors all came together very well.
