Cool, ridged bottle. Didn't have a UV light to test out its claims though.

Pours black, a little bit more subdued and little less soul-destroying but still black.

Nice head with a moderately tanned head and fantastic lacing.

Smell is really hoppy. Hydroponically so. Roasty too. Bit o' malt flavour. Has almost a cookies'n' cream flavour.

Taste is big American hops, big roast. Again, a bit of fruity malt.

I do have a soft spot for a really hoppy and roasty stout. Kind of similar to Epic's Double Stout, and highly enjoyable. Wish all (non-BA) stouts were like this.

A new release from these guys and its a hoppy stout so more American than anything and pours the darkest brown almost black hue with a creamy moccachino two finger head and clingy lacing that leaves its mark,the smell is toasty dark malts with an underlining of typical berry influenced NZ hops with some herbalness as well,the mouthfeel Is medium bodied with above moderate carbonation and basically it's a marriage made in heaven of dark toasty malts and big NZ hops where each has their own space and time to shine separately while not being able to be what it is without each other and it's a tasty stout that's limited that will be another repurchase cheers.
