Disappointed with this one. Hoppy black lager-ish. $10.99/6

unusually hoppy for a stout. Very nice taste, a little too much carbonation. Not a heavy stout it all.

I had it in a bomber originally and personally, it was much better for some reason. I went out and got a 6er of it and didn't seem quite right.

Had from 12 oz bottle and enjoyed this unique stout. Quality stout that leans more hoppy but still has provides enough chocolate flavors to satisfy typical stout tastes. Unless you read the bottle you'd never know it's high octane at 9%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate and hops. Taste is surprisingly hoppy, some chocolate, a bit of sweetness, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

This isn't a stout by any stretch of the imagination. Black IPA, possibly. There's absolutely no trace of coffee, chocolate, barley or any of the other ingredients you would expect in a stout. If there were any of the above, the hops would easily overpower any other flavor. Hop-heads...you'll love it. Stout Drinkers....don't waste your money.
