I bought this at the Giant eagle off Route 8. Amazing election there.

A: Close to black with copper undertones.
S: A little bit of Canadian whiskey and the sweetness of a great stout.
T: Wow, I've been a supporter of this brewery but this time they really pushed it up a notch. This is thebest beer that I've tasted from Pittsburgh.
M: There is little in way of carbonation but the stout is full flavoured and thick on the tongue as I want it to be.
O: Full Pint has finally it the make that I I knew they would. I hope that they keep producing on this level. If they do then we in for some great treats in western PA.

Aroma: Wonderful. Woody, smoky, worty, bacon, chocolate, coffee, lots of grains. I love it already. I want to buy another bottle and I haven't even tasted it.

Appearance: It's official, the darkest head I've ever seen, topping the previous champion the Alaskan Perseverance Imperial Stout. Good retention and a lot of lacing. Black, opaque.

Taste: Bacon, serious bacon. Rye, chocolate, coffee, wood, smoke. Lots of sweetness, with the bitterness of the rye, coffee and smoke to balance it out. Wow, incredible. No alcohol! Wonderful roasty coffee finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Mild carbonation. Very oily. No warming from the alcohol.

Overall: Impressive. Bold. Complex. Delicious. My first "5" rating, fitting being that this is my 100th review on BA.

On tap at the Pine for Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week! Served in a 12 oz snifter.

A- Body is a menacing dark brown, nearly black. Served with a 1-2 finger creamy tan head. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. Held up to the light side by side with Big Eddy this brew was much darker and richer in color.

S- Balance. Great Balance. Dark Chocolate, Roasted Malt, Oak Barrel, Whiskey, rye, malt everywhere.

T- Flavor is very similar to the nose. The base beer is moslty present upfront with that signature rye backbone. A lot of barrel comes through for the finish-but it balances well with the base beer and does not overwhelm it. There is a big alcohol warmth at end and a moderate, balance flavor-but none of the associated astringency.

M- Exceptional. Low to medium carbonation and a thick, deep, very smooth, complex body.

O- Overall this is a fantastic stout. I love hoppy rye beers because they add such a smoothness to the mouthfeel but I didn't realize what a difference it would make in a stout. Fantastic job by Full Pint in putting this one together. I bought a four pack and I hope its just as good bottled.

Poured jet black in to a 22oz DFH snifter. One finger of mocha colored head that disappeared pretty quickly. There was a little bit of lacing that clung on for dear life.

Coffee, chocolate, and a roasted woodiness. The burn of booze that is pretty consistent.

Roasted malt and coffee up front. A bit of oak and astringency. Light, bittersweet chocolate finish. Minor notes of vanilla. Lots of flavors.

The mouthfeel was incredibly smooth. The carbonation was light and crisp. Medium body and a dry and smooth finish.

Fantastic stout that is incredibly drinkable. As one reviewer said this one will creep up on you, and I fully agree.Totally worth the try.

On-Tap into Pint Glass

Appeared a deep, dark black with two fingers of dense, tan head. Smelled of chocolate, coffee and malt. The smells come through immediately in the taste with a very slight bitter finish. The use of rye in this beer is evident as the heavy flavor and body of a typical stout are thinned out nicely. Overall, an excellent rye stout that is well-balanced and very easy to drink. Will certainly have it again.
