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.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours an inky black body with a thick creamy coco tan head that fades to a thick ring. It is a bit too dense to see any carbonation.

S- The big earthy black roasted malt has some green woody hops aroma to follow.

T- The smooth flavor grows to a full rounded black malt character with some coffee roasted malt and mellow charcoal notes that linger through the aftertaste. There is no real bitterness but a nice fuggle green hop flavor in the finish that supports the malt nicely.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth and a nice thick texture in the finish.

O- This beer is full of nice big dark roasted flavors but is is very drinkable and a nice hop support with clean yeast. The alcohol is well hidden making this a nice solid stout with English and American qualities.

Batch 8

A: Gorgeous oily opaque black pour - slips out of the bottle and forms a creamy mocha head.

S: Heavily roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate hit first, then some raisin and caramel, some slight vanilla sweetness.

T: Big roasted coffee and dark chocolate, some ash. Milk chocolate sweetness and caramel in the middle of the mouth. A pretty bitter and ashy russian imperial stout

P: Very smooth. M/F bodied

O: A really awesome beer. Spiteful is off to an awesome start

Black as night with a oily and wet head of tight knitted foam, the beer laced with a curtain of foam along the glass.

Chocolate malt at the forefront of the aroma, there was some strong Graham cracker graininess and then ended in charred coffee.

The taste is so smooth with rich chocolate malt, toasty Graham cracker, roasted coffee and then some char. Smokey, sort of campfire ember, the taste is full and the feel easy.

Very good, tasty beer. Nice entry from a Brewery I'm just now hearing of.

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.
