A: Appears black in the glass. Forms a large, thick, and fairly stable mocha colored head that leaves a good bit of lacing on the way down.
S: Aroma is fairly hoppy for a stout, with notes of citrus and pine. However, it's not all about the hops either as there are aromas of charred malts and chocolate as well.
T: Taste is similar, but the malts are more dominant. Heavily roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee. Maybe a bit of char. Then there are the hops, mostly grapefruit and pine.
M: On the heavier side of medium. Medium carbonation. Dry and chalky on the finish.
O: A nice beer, one that showcases how hops can still play a dominant role in a stout.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/12/2012. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice hoppy aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/roasted earthiness. Slight pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, pineapple, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, light char, toast, floral, grass, light pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and well balanced hop and roasted malt flavors; with nice robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice American stout style. All around good balance and robustness of hop and roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
