The aroma and appearance are true to the style. The pour is thick and syrup like. Night black with a thin tan head, the flavor is strongly cough medicine and biting alcohol. It's mouthfeel is thick. A big disappointment. Missing the normal roasted chocolate and strong coffee flavor.

I poured this beer into a snifter, it has a black colored body with a large mocha colored head that hangs around for a while
The smell is of roasted malt, not much else.
The taste is of roasted malt and some chocolat.
The mouth feel is ok, has a very bitter after taste. Overal not impressed and not really good

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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.
