We thought it had a great aroma and complex flavors. It was a terrific change of pace after a double IPA.

On-tap at Buffalo Wild Wings in Hermitage PA. Served in a pint glass.

A- Body is a dark brown nearly black hue that is served with a 1-2 finger foamy light brown head that has good retention and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.

S- Lots of pine, full of hops. The pine dominates the nose, with hints of citrus and roasted malt in the background.

T- The initial flavor is pine overtones, with a hint of citrus and a faint milk chocolate in the background. The finish is slightly bigger with refreshing pine coming through and a hint of roasted malt bitterness.

M- Medium to heavy weight body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly milky body.

O- Overall this is a good, hoppy stout. Lots of pine everywhere with a nice thick, milky stout backbone. Nothing particularly special-but nonetheless good.

Night of The Living Stout has an ash-black tone and is buried practically six inches under a heaping mound of dirt-brown head (fortunately that initial foam dissipates to a reasonable level). Its complexion is like a moonless midnight: entirely opaque. The lacing that spills across the glass is, appropriately enough, in blood spatter pattern.

In terms of aroma, this stout combines a spritz of grapefruit, rose petal essence, pine and spruce needles, and the air of a spring meadow with bittersweet, lactic, lightly chocolatey notes. It's like Full Pint invented some kind of jasmine-infused milkshake. There are semblances to both over-steeped green tea and heavily creamed coffee.

Given the rather modest reviews online, I was expecting something relatively light, clean, and uncomplicated. Those descriptors aren't unfair but Night of the Living Stout is a little bit more than that. As referenced already, there's a frothy milkshake-like mouthfeel and traces of lactose sweetness to compete with all the budding floral, herbal qualities of the hops.

Even at 7% alcohol this is a stout that could be drunk by the bucketful. The reported 110 IBUs must be a mathematical error - I'd bet my right eye on it. This doesn't taste anywhere near as bitter as it claims to be (the obvious presence of Cascade hops notwithstanding) and the stout side of things, for its part, offers that custardy, creamy roundness it should.

Full Pint did just about as good a job with the recipe for Night of the Living Stout as they did the name and label art. It may not have what it takes to achieve the cult-classic status of the George A. Romero film from which it takes its theme, but it does have enough cocoa and citrus qualities that it could very well "have beer nerds returning from their graves". This beer nerd anyhow.

If I were to tell you that a beer with 110 IBUs was a stout, you'd kick me off this site. Let me tell you that this beer is outstanding.

Growler from store. Pour is dark and heady. Aroma is burnt marshmallow, but in a good way. Taste is a bit coffee at first but the bitterness of the hops comes through and everything works out really well.
