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

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.

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.

Extremely black and gluggy for a 7% stout. Looks like used motor oil. Sudsy sepia head. Looks fantastic. Awesome label, too, by the way.

Roasty and laced with dark chocolate/cocoa notes. Lightly charred and slightly spicy. Touch of black cherry and French roast coffee. Hops are well-sprung and add to the spiciness. Great aroma.

Very well-roasted. Black char, earthy hops, bitter cocoa, and black coffee. Massive chocolate malt grain flavor imparted. Rough and bitter. Faint notes of cherry pits and lemon zest. Weird, but awesome.

Medium body with a little more. Carbonation is medium, also. Alcohol is barely traceable.

Excellent stout of the American style. Perhaps the best of the Full Pint beers so far.

Another from a recent drop-off by my local, in-person trader, tone77, who keeps me satiated with bottles. Many thanks!

From the bottle: "They keep coming back in a thirsty lust for great taste"; "From the Depths of the Full Pint fermenters comes a Spine Tingling Stout that will have beer nerds returning from their graves. We single hopped this brew with [C]ascade for a citrus character perfectly balanced with roasted malts for unrelenting great taste[.]"; "West Coast Style Stout"; "Beer Nerd Stats: Malts: Pilsner, Crystal, Roasted Barley, Black Hops: Cascade O. G. 16.5 IBU 110 Alc. By Vol. 7%".

The trick to a good aggro pour is knowing when to begin backing off to avoid overflow. Also, pour away from the direction of the computer and its keyboard. I have become proficient at both and this time, I created two fingers of dense, rocky, deep-tan/light-brown head with good retention. Color was a deep, dark-brown (SRM = 44) allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose was roasty, notes of dark chocolate and even a light smokiness. I don't always drink stouts, but when I do, this is the kind of thing that I really enjoy. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but close. The taste was like licking charred wood and I mean that in a good way. It tasted like the aftermath of a campfire, plus some dark chocolate for good measure. Finish was dry, roasty and while not enough to tempt me back from the grave, it was a dang good beer. Thanks again, tone77!

Bottle from jbwimer. Thanks! Pours pitch black and thick looking with a one finger mocha colored head. Big roasty aroma with a bit of bittersweet chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor is strong roastiness, light bittersweet chocolate, more roast, and some nice lingering earthy coffee tones left on the palate. Big bold mouthfeel to match the flavors with medium carbonation. This is a really excellent big roasty stout. Serious body and flavor for the ABV. Underrated brew here.
