This is my favorite beer hands down, it's what a Guinness should be.

Perfect smoothness, slightly hoppy, but exactly right. My only real complaint about this beer is that it's not available in the summer when it's replaced with the horror that is Apollo.

This beer is great. If The Brazen has it on tap, i'll be drinking it.

Beer is pitch black in color.

Smells like beautiful roasted nuts and chocolate.

Tastes like dark chocolate with a nutty finish.

Has the mouthfeel of liquid gold.

I personally love this beer and can enjoy it all day. No one should be "pounding" this beer. Its flavorful glory must be enjoyed.

Can into tumbler.
"Keep refrigerated, dry hopped with fresh hops." Sounds marvelous and promising.
I always enjoy a can of these beers, I never know what style it is when I buy it or open it. A, always surprised when I review it.

Oh an American stout... Smells like a CDA or a BIPA whatever designation they go by these days.

Opaque black pour with ruby highlights around the edges. Two finger creamy light beige head with sticky lacing around the glass.

A wonderful hop wallop followed by dark roasted coffee and some nice subtle bittersweet chocolate. There is some vanilla and caramel in there somewhere. Very non-traditional and excellent.

Dark roasted coffee, bitter dark chocolate, bitter pine, sweet brown sugar, fresh baked cookies. This is truly something other worldly. Everything just goes together so well.

Medium body, good carbonation, sticky on the lips.

This was totally unexpected. I started buying random cans from Sixpoint every time I head to Buffalo. I don't read the reviews before and leave the surprise until the end. I think this one is my personal favorite. Will definitely be getting much more of these next visit South.
