Poured into a snifter.

Appeared a dark brown/black color with a light brown head.

Smelled hoppy. Wait..is this a black IPA or a stout?

Taste was hoppy and unbalanced. Why does this have 85 IBUs?

Mouthfeel was fine.

Overall this missed the mark for me. Hoping the BA version is better.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass.

Lot of head bubbling up. Quality lacing, oh wait who gives a crap about lacing.

Smell is of bitter dark chocolate and generic powder coffee. That's about it, not too complex.

Taste is exactly the nose. A total one note of bitter dark chocolate and roastiness. The body is fairly smooth yet finishes bitter and astringent.

I have to be brutal here and say despite having high expectations for this well regarded stout, I find it one of the worst stouts out there. It has no complexity. Solely dark chocolate and the worst tasting gas station coffee caught up in a horrific amount of bitterness throughout the beer and especially in the finish. The IBUs are absurdly high, 85, why would you do that in a stout? This is brittle, miserable and painful to drink. It's a struggle not to drain pour.
