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.

Full Pint Brewing
Night of the Living Stout

*12 oz bottle with a label depicting a zombie holding a bottle of beer.

LOOK: Dark, dark brown with an off white brownish head that lasts a good while. Laces the glass with brown foam after each sip. Looking like a well made stout.

SMELL: Aromas of burnt toast, coffee, and lots of herbal/floral hop notes. Definitely gives the impression of a stout that is well hopped.

TASTE: Robustly malty, with a strong roasted malt presence and some hop character. Coffee, dark chocolate and oily cigar like notes from black patent malt. There is a nice complimentary bitterness and woodsy/earthy notes from the hops. Small citrus and grass notes stick out from a roasted, almost smokey malt base. Bright hoppyness that just does not want to quit. Bitter black coffee and strong hop bitterness make for a palate wrecker. For dark beer fans and hop fans alike, this is a winner.

FEEL: Medium to full bodied, smooth, refreshing and soulful brew. Drinks easily and hides the strength well.

OVERALL: Another fantastic dark beer to add to the Full Pint lineup. The brewer/s really flexing their muscles here with a very solid American Stout to go along with several dark beers in their range. A six pack or case is the way to go with this beer, hopefully it will be made more widely available.

Off the first hit, I think that this will be a pretty roasty/toasty kind of brew. And then the aftertaste hits me and its extremely roasted on the palate. Strong and thorough and lasting. Fairly thick feel with a slightly higher carbonation than I would have expected. Definitely a winter beer.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass.

Pours black with a nice dark khaki head. Looks like a standard stout, but the smell is much more complex then the regular roasted stouts most people put out. Roasted coffee and milk chocolate mingle with citrus hops making a very pleasing smell.

The taste is very creamy milk chocolate with bitter coffee accents. Good amount of hops for a stout too. The overall feel is creamy and light. I could drink this all day. Coats your palate well and evenly. I really enjoyed this beer and will look for it again.
