Odd beer. Hoppiest stout I've ever had, pretty much a bla k ipa. Pretty good, though. (85 characters)

Overly hopped, too astringent for a stout. Body too thin for a stout, especially for the higher gravity. More like a less flavorful black IPA. (143 characters)

Totally overrated and overpriced. The finish is a complete mess. (65 characters)

5 oz taster glass, from tap.

Appearance: Your typical stout - black of color, dark tan of head, with good retention.

Smell: Straight hops, nothing else. This smells much like I imagine perfume that has gone rancid smells.

Taste: The taste follows the aroma, nothing but a solid wall of acrid floral bite. I can't even conceive of any other descriptor than what I would guess taking a swig of some excessively flowery perfume right from the bottle could be like.

Mouthfeel: I got two sips in, and couldn't even register mouthfeel, so I default this category to decent.

Overall: This is a black IPA that is mislabeled as a stout. Those of you who don't share my hop sensitivity would probably find it amazing - I get a single note barrage of disgust. (753 characters)

22oz bomber, dated 12/16/2014. Pours black with a medium-sized brown head which leaves rings of lacing on the glass. Smell is dominated by piney hops and grapefruit. More colorful taste of piney hops, grapefruit, roasted malt, and cocoa. Some bitterness throughout and alcohol warming on the finish. Below average body and present carbonation. Overall, this feels more like a black IPA than an imperial stout, but is flavorful and well-crafted nonetheless. (462 characters)
