Batch #3

Had this a few weeks ago when it first came out (batch #1), seemed a bit more hoppy then. It's pretty big and roasty, but the hops seem to be diminished in this batch.

Dark and oily pour into a tulip glass, generating a compact head of tan milk chocolate hued foam. Some lace is left behind around the edges of the glass.

Creamy and close to full bodied, slightly chewy. Big roasty bitterness and dry bakers chocolate. Some dark roast coffee, charred toast, dry graphite in the aftertaste. An American Imperial Stout, using Cascade hops. Pretty good and suited to the cool January night.

Recommended for fans of Bells Double Cream Stout or Dark Horse's Stout Series.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Batch number 7, should be at least a year old as its been sitting in my beer fridge for sometime.

A- Pours a deep black as expected, a very small amount of khaki head quickly fades. Not much carbonation to speak of on the pour either.

S- Roasty malts and along with some chocolate and espresso on the nose. The chocolate gets more apparent as the beer warms.

T- Roasty malts that began the aroma begin the taste as hell. After that I get some hop bittering notes before tastes of chocolate along with coffee.

M- Medium bodied, low carbonation, easy drinking stout.

This is a nice lighter stout (if there's such a thing.) Easy to drink with some nice hop presence on the end of each taste even after aging a year.

Picked up a 22 oz. bottle at Vas Foremost Liquors in Chicago back in early September, minutes after leaving Revolution Brewing across the street and just before heading to ORD for our flight home. Batch #21 scrawled on the label. Opened on the Oregon Coast, at our little cabin getaway weekend near Cannon Beach; poured to two pint glasses during an epic Yahtzee game with my wife.

Label: A one-eyed, tattered teddy bear flipping the bird. The "G.F.Y." message (vaguely detailed in text on the side label) is directed at someone/something --- although I'm unsure who/what.

A: Really dark, virtually black. Head is subdued, vaguely tan, dense. Modest sticking lace.

S: Sweeter 'fudge' aroma, deeper berry sweet-funk. Earthy, coffee, sooty.

T: Deep chocolate/coffee bean throughout. Bitter roast, then a sweeter turn. A little licorice, mild spicing.

M: Alcohol is pretty well concealed. Modest/low carbonation - but that may be the "aging" (4 months since purchase (refrigerated ever since) but no idea when "Batch #21" was created). The end result is smooth and silky, good coating, medium/full body and large lingering flavors.

O: Likable and a good sipping beer. Spiteful has created a solid stout with strong aroma and flavor. Would I have this again? I'd love to...
