A - Black with a fairly large, smooth, creamy, fluffy, cafe colored head. Good retention leaving a nice, sticky layer of lace.
S - Loads of sweet, creamy chocolate. Hints of grapefruit and sweet citrus. Notes of mocha. THe more I smell, the more ruby grapefruit aroma I get. A slight earthiness on the end.
T - SImilar flavors to the aromas. Sweet, creamy chocolate is front and center. A constant background of ruby grapefruit that bursts out mid sip. Subtle underlying earthiness and stale coffee grounds throughout. Finishes with a stronger mocha flavor along with a slight earthy and citrus rind bitterness.
M - Medium body with above average carbonation. Lively with a slightly spritzy finish.
D - Very drinkable stout. Alcohol is very well hidden. Great balance between sweet and bitter, dark stout flavors and hoppy goodness. I easily finished my bottle and enjoyed every last sip.
Notes: A very well done hoppy stout. Great job balancing the flavors. Hops are very present, particularly the grapefruit, but it is undeniably a stout as the sweet and earthy chocolate flavors are up front. Overall well done. Really nice beer that is worth a try.

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.
