(Note: my scoring system is whole number only)
22oz bomber dated 12/12/12, consumed today in a Bell's goblet 3/5/13
Aroma: Very hoppy. A good amount of pine, a bit of sea salt with hints of roasted malt sweetness. Nice strong nose for a stout. (4)
Colour: Pours a nice dark cola brown, 2cm brown head with strong retention. Lacing is fantastic on this beer; after I take a drink it forms honeycomb-like patterns on the side of the glass that sticks for a good while. Not much it could do to improve on the looks front. (5)
Flavour: Full of piney bitterness put together with the underlying roasted malt sweetness hinting of chocolate and caramel. Put altogether its got a faint teriyaki flavour with predominant pine flavour. Very interesting beer. (4)
Mouthfeel: On the thicker side of medium body, which is thick for the American stout style. It's definitely not watery. Carbonation is solid. The brew runs a bit dry and the aftertaste is predominantly that teriyaki flavour sticking around for a good while. (4)
Overall: This beer is pretty good; one of the hoppier stouts I've had. It reminds me of Goose Island's Nightstalker but not quite as syrupy and a bit less hoppy. I think hoppy stouts are a bit of an oxymoron, its like a syrupy black IPA or something like that. However I know that hopheads will like this beer a lot. Looks good and smells good; but It could use some more work to bring the flavour together better and I wouldn't get it again the next time I come to Chicago, but I think it's a good beer to try a couple times.

4.2/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance is pitch black and well carbonated. Almost no head.
Smells of chocolate, roasted nuts, and hot sugar.
Slight caramel, chocolate, burnt sugar, and a hint of coffee.
The mouthfeel is lush and smooth but a little thin for my taste.
Overall I was only slightly disappointed with this brew as I was looking for something thicker, but still a damn good choice.
