Very interesting take on a stout. I thought Victory storm king was an interesting stout with all the different flavors. This stout has a grassy note with a strong roasted scent and taste with a nice backbone of bitterness not usually found in stouts.
The drinkability is very high for me on this one. Very easy to drink even though it looks like a heavy stout.
Pours pitch black with a thin off white foam.

Just another great offering from sixpoint.

On tap at The Pony Bar last night.

The pour was on par for the course, jet black with dark brown highlights, and a dense, brown head with great retention. Moderate lacing is present too. The nose is loaded with dark, bitter chocolate, quite excellently so. There's also a rather noticeable earthy and citrus hop character. Plenty of roasted malt bitterness is also perceived. The palate opens with a robust roasted malt bitterness and a dark chocolate character. In fact, it tastes like it smells, with some coffee character added, mostly a chicory-like bitterness. The hop character is most noticeable up front, before it whelmed by the malt character. Moderately fruity with a little plum, this finishes dry with a pronounced roasted grain bitterness. Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation, this beer is solid. Not really something you'd shotgun, though.
