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

An overly roasty black IPA

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.

Totally overrated and overpriced. The finish is a complete mess.

A- Black body, thin tan head
S- Hops... a bit like a DIPA
T- Roasted malt up front, pine hop bitter on back, but not overly bitter
M- Full

O- Overly hopped stout? Yeah, it works... and works well.

Really great hop infused stout. I would expect a chocolaty malt flavor to clash with a strong crisp hop flavor but they combine very nicely. Definitely worth a purchase.

Black with a moderate amount of tan head. Good retention and eventually resolves to just some bubbles around the edge.

Smells of bakers chocolate, dark roasted malt, and some berries from the hops.

It has a mildly hopped up approach in the flavor. Berries, chocolate, and coffee. There's also some piney notes in there.

Very smooth, heavy body. It drinks easy for 10+%. Low carbonation that lends to the smooth mouthfeel.

A very good hoppy stout. The hops weren't overdone and added nice depth.
