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.

Pours very dark into a tulip glass with a 1.5" tan head. The head lingers lightly as you drink, but returns quickly with a slight swirl. Subtle lacing.

The smell is roasty with a good dose of cascade hops. Slight hints of chocolate can be picked up.

The taste is a nice balance of roasted malt and hop bitterness. The cascade bitterness comes through pretty firm, but works well with this brew. A little sweetness lingers on the tongue after the bitterness of the hops has passed.

Mouthfeel is medium/thick with good carbonation.

All in all, this is a really good brew. The large, citrusy hop profile separates it from other stouts. While drinking this I'm reminded of Troegs Dead Reckoning.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is black, opaque, not even feint hues on the edges; head is brown, solid initial presentation and some nice lacing.

Smell is sweet, chocolate, caramel malts, roasted malt comes through subtler, noticeable hop presence in an earthy scent.

taste is sweet, less chocolate, more coffee and caramel and roasted malts, not too cloying but sweeter overall than the scent; bitterness and hop flavors are earthy/grassy, hints of pine.

Mouthfeel is strong on the tongue, slightly cloying with some stronger lingering sweetness; bitterness compensates but hard to overcome for balance.

Overall, a little sweet for drinkable stronger stout, hop presence is decent but just hard to overtake the lingering malt sweetness and heavy hand on the darker malts.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color, deep-deep brown color with a tiny brown colored head. The head fades rather quickly leaving a greatly level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and some spotty island of foam on the top of the brew.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt and some chocolate notes. Along with these smells are some aromas of a caramel and molasses sweetness and a bit of vanilla coffee. Rounding out the aromas is a bit of an earthy and herbal hop.

Taste – The taste starts out with a big dose of roasted malt and a moderately strong hoppy taste of an earthy nature. While there is chocolate in the nose, there really is none detected on the tongue. The caramel and molasses sweetness, that were also in the nose, are very light in the taste, with them largely lost more toward the middle to the end of the flavor profile. While the sweetness fades, a big coffee flavor comes to the tongue bittering the taste. Along with the bitter coffee, more hop of an earthy nature as well as a bit of an herbal and grassy flavor. Some flavors of char and toast also develop during the taste, with the combination of flavors at the end leaving a slightly bitter and rather roasted favor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and chewy with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The creamy body is quite nice for all the roasted flavors of the brew with all the dry roasted and bitter coffee flavors of the brew really soaking into the tongue.

Overall –Dry and bitter with a big coffee flavor in this one. It was actually a little too dry and hopped for a stout in my opinion, but if that is something you are looking for then this is certainly a good choice.

My recent haul focused on sampling beers that were suitable to bring to Halloween parties at the end of the month. Of course, that means mostly pumpkin ales, but this stout made the cut due to its name.

Pours almost black with more than a finger of creamy brown head that dissipates rather quickly but leaves nice layers of lace behind. The nose had both roasted and hop notes. The body and roast profile are on the lighter end as stouts go, but it remains tasty. The hops come through on the finish and complement the roasted bitterness.

I'd likely score this higher if it was considered a black ale, but there needs to be a small deduction for not staying true to style.

Still, this is a tasty offering that would fit right in at any Halloween gathering.

12oz bottle, lot 378 (best by 2/14) poured into a pint glass
A: Pitch black with a 1/2-finger head that slowly settles
S: Dark malt, coffee and a solid hop aroma as well
T: Burnt coffee, some pine hops but those dominate without much other complexity to back them up
M: Intense but mostly from bitterness, from a texture standpoint it's a bit thin
O: I wish there was a review button for the label because this one's great. Overall not a bad beer but I would call this a black IPA given the emphasis on hops over other quaities

Bottle into stout glass

Appearance- Black, nice sized tan head good lacing.

Aroma- Roasted malt, chocolate, some carmel, pine and herbal hops, coffee

Flavor, roasted malt, piney hops, some citrus as well, coffee, some chocolate, earthy on the backend, some lingering bitterness that takes this down a bit but not bad.

Mouthfeel- medium, with good carbonation

Overall- Once I read the lable it made sense. This is a very bitter hoppy stout. I liked it as a change up in the style, you could call it black ale. They do say its a west coast style stout, and its hoppy and very bitter, so if thats not your thing or you want a more standard stout maybe not the best. Glad I tried it.
