4.24/5 rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: A big 4 finger head head was built on a moderatly aggresive pour in the 3Floyds Teku glass. The foam was a mocha, kahki colored with smaller bubbles at first that sustained for a minute or two. When it started to receed it became chuncky and honeycomb like and left a big lump inthe center and small traces of lacing on the edge. The beer is nearly opaque but when held to the sun a brownish mahogany hugh emerges.
S: When it was first poured there was a pronounced grapefruit hop aroma that made me think of "black IPA". However, as the foam fell, roasted malts, coffee and cocoa along with a hint of toast and chicory.
T: Lots of dark malt flavors; coffee, burnt toast, dark chocolate, chickory, roastey and vanilla and tobacco flavors that get more apperant as the beer warms up. A moderate pine like bitterness stays consistant thoughout. It finishes a lot dryer than expected so its not sweet like some bigger stouts can be but just malty and roasty.
M: Moderate carbonation that keeps the hops noticable but in check. A dryer finish and moderate body. No significant astringancy making it very drinkable.
O: I got 2 bottles of this from DLD '13, the first I split with a friend and remembered it being much more hoppy. I think the age made it more 'stout like' and less Black IPA like (which is a good thing) but I'm still not a huge fan of the chickory notes I'm getting from this (similar to "in the name of suffering") Good beer for any stout lover to try once.

Spent one year in the cellar bough fresh from the brewery
Pours pitch black in color and pretty viscous. A big finger and a half foamy light tan head retains nicely.
Smell is good. Lots of roasted barley maybe some rye are forward in the nose and fade to a toffee aroma. an earthy hop aroma finishes.
Taste follows the nose with big roasted barley and rye flavors upfront. Malt is decently balanced with a mild bite, hints of tobacco and saddle leather, moderate earthy hop flavor and mild bitterness.
Mouthfeel is moderately thick with a little bit of stickiness and some oily hoppy resin.
Had I realized how hoppy this was I would have drank it fresh. Not a great stout but I'll give it the benifit of the doubt considering it's age.
