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

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

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.

Amazingly hoppy stout... The beer reminds me of Alpha Klaus but a little thicker... Roasted chocolate malts mingle with a piney hop assaullt that won't quit...

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.
