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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

This brew pours a solid coal black with plum colored highlights when held up to the light. There is also a mocha three finger head which, even though it dissipates fairly quickly, leaves a nice remnant floating on top of the beer and as a collar. There is a lot of moca lacing.

The smell is piney and grapefruit like. Floral hops, cocoa powder and nutty. There are also lightly roasted and sweet malts present.

The taste follows the nose with sweet and roasted malts first, followed by light chocolate then a deep earthy nutty taste. This beer could be an imperial stout due to the bold, up front hop presence from start to finish. The feel is light and creamy in spite of the hops; the finish is slightly dry. Overall another winner from Full Pint.
