Gonna be drinking this with the new Walking Dead show..

A-black with a nice thick brown head. looks perfect.

S-actually smells fairly hoppy with a good amount of cocoa to it as well. it's a good mix, so it smells like a black IPA to me. there's a good strength to it.

T-comes in with a great flavor of aged hops and strong bitter chocolate covered cocoa beans. it's a really great flavor with a good roast to it. the after-taste is matching and quite strong. it's a very long lasting flavor, quite impressive.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a nice creamy finish.

O-this is actually an amazing beer. the flavors are all strong and bold. it's definitely a hoppy stout, with the main focus on dark roasted grains, but still with a good hint of hops in there as well. very natural tasting. no off flavors.

Enjoyed from bottle; I'll edit this review if I try it again with proper glassware.
Smell is roasted coffee and malts. Taste follows, and then doubles, nose; darkly roasted coffee and chocolate are finished by bitter hops. Medium-bodied. Overall a different take on the style than others; I'd pick it up again.

110 IBUs in a stout, that must be a record. Pours a pitch black night of the living stout style with a nice lively carbonated tan head forming thick and billowing up above the rim of my glass. Aroma is full of citrus, floral, and pine hop accents, with a dark black patent malt roastiness in the backend. Black roasted malt pairs well with bitter ass hop notes, these beers from Full Pint are extreme and this is no different layers and layers of hop pellet flavors like grassy, herbal, floral, citrus peel collided on the palate with a big West Coast style stout. Dark chocolate nearly burnt malts actually work well with the big hop layers if that's what you like bitter harsh finish in a good way, carbonation is working a full bodied approach to this beer lively carbonation until the last sip keeps me on my toes. Overall it's a great beer, if you like big hops and big dark roasted malts.

Black as the pit from pole to pole, the aroma is dominated by deeply roasted malt and charred wood. Velvety and smooth texture. Then WHAM! those hops hit. This would be shocking if you expected a stout but didn’t know the IBU content! Toasted malt, smoke, and charred wood stand up to the intensely bitter hops.

Poured from a bottle with a badass label into a tulip glass. Lot 223 - best by 3/13.

A: Pours a fairly thick completely opaque black. A one finger khaki/mocha head forms full of tight little bubbles...head sticks around for the duration. No legs. Plenty of lace. A damn fine looking stout.

S: Wow - a ton of piney hops in the nose for sure. They call this a "west coast stout" and I'm realizing now that they're referring to the massive hop character going on here. Checking the label...110 IBU...yep, that'll do it! Some chocolate and char also, but mainly a big ol wollap of hops right to the sniffer.

T/M: First thing you get is the bitterness detected in the nose...piney, resinous, bitter hops. Maybe a touch of that roastiness in the midde, but man...mostly just this overwhelming, somewhat unpleasant bitterness all the way from the front of the palate to the back. Both of the dark malts used (Roasted Barley and Black Malt) are known to be bitter as well so that's probably not helping. There's really not a lot of flavor here...not even hop flavor to accompany the bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty decent. Surprisingly creamy considering the pour looked thin. I'd call it medium-bodied but somewhat chewy and coats the mouth nicely...higher than average carbonation for the style, but that's the least of my concerns.

O: I hate to say it cause I really wanted to like this for so many reasons, but I think this is a miss...or at least a miscategorization. Maybe this could go in the Black Ale/Black IPA category and be a success. But as a stout - even a hoppy stout - I just don't think it delivers any complexity at all. Completely one-dimensional in the direction of the hops. I'm going to age a few bottes of this and revisit when those hops die down...maybe it'll be better with age. Bummer.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of coffee, some roasted malts. Taste is bitter, coffee, lots of hops, a bit unbalanced and off in some ways, not what I was expecting from a stout. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall, while not terrible, I found this beer to be over hopped for the style.
