Without a doubt this is another top-notch brew from the brewmaster Shane. ThIs American Stout is something that is out of this world. It pours black, with a light mocha colored head, and hangs around for as long as the beer is in its glass. The aroma is of a heavenly chocolate, nutty sweetness, with a twinge (if its even there) of roasted coffee. The taste Is all of the above that come together with the slight bitterness that is from the roasted coffee flavor, and the background of hops. Mouth feel is silky, but light enough not to be a heavy dark beer. i think this place is going to be explosive in the future. Way to go Shane.

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.

"Preview" bottle given to me by the brewers at Sixpoint. This is thick black in color with a big chocolate malt aroma and a taste like sweet, chocolate-y engine oil. I can see why they named it Diesel. As I've found with all of their beers so far, extremely drinkable with a deceiving and well-hidden ABV. Another solid offering.
