3.96/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours slick dark black in color, relatively thick. Head is tan and about two finger with good retention.

Smell is great. Some rich caramel malt along with some toffee and light coaco aromas. Herbal hoppy resin finish and ties it all together in an interesting way.

Taste is good, moderate piney hop bitterness is forward along with a mildly sweet roasted charcoal like malt that adds to the bitterness. Mildly sweet rich toffee flavors finish on the back end with a light residue sweetness.

Mouthfeel is good. Thick feel, big body and moderate carbonation are all balanced nicely. Sweetness is offset with the bitterness but the bitterness is a little high for me.

3.79/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The first couple full reviews pretty much nailed it on the head. This is much more of a black IPA than a stout.

Practically pitch black with some light passing around the edges. Extremely active head nearing an inch. Spotty lacing.

It's hopped to the gills. Pine and leafy. Light chocolate, super heavy roast.

Medium mouthfeel, heavy carbonation. Extra bitter.

Overall, I liked it quite a bit though I was expecting something more heavy and sweet given the name. I should have known the beer has nothing to do with marshmallows.
