Finally found a fresh bottle. Re review.

A: Pours jet black. Finger and a half of decadent espresso creme head. Excellent retention. Very creamy looking head. Looks like one mean imperial stout.

S: Smells like a hopped up version of that. Big hops in this one. Lot of pine, citrus and floral. Backbone of roastiness. Some sweetness in there as well. Bits of coffee, some baker's cocoa and even a malted milk chocolate presence.

T: Tastes much more IPA than black. Up front is a big surge of hop bitterness. Very west coast in style. This melds into a delicious roasty characteristic. Hops bring out a huge tropical element. Pineapple, mango, papaya.Mid finish is a woodsy/leafy element akin to something Sierra Nevada would do. Finish is some apple skin, with a deep roastiness and tobacco(?) that turns to bitter in the aftertaste.

M: Surprisingly light for the style and ABV. Goes down smooth. Carbonation is toned down, but this one feels like it's closer to 7%.

O: Great brew. Nothing really stands out. Not nearly as bitter as the 109 IBU's. The dark malts help to accentuate the fruitiness of the hops. While it doesn't meld perfectly, it's still damn tasty.
