In a snifter, black color. Small tan head with a tiny bit of lace.
Roasted malt aroma with some pine resin.
Chocolate taste up front, leading to a pine finish.
Interesting beer. Different.

Can from ABV.

Black with a thin brown head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is a blend of heavily roasted malt with chocolate and coffee, along with a noticeable pine hop note. The palate opens with a pleasant bitterness, rather roasty with a blend of unsweetened cocoa and black coffee. This is followed by a noticeable pine hop note, mildly oily, that amplifies the roasted malt character. Drying, hoppy, bitter and mildly resiny on the finish, this beer is medium-light in body and softly carbonated. The low carbonation lends a pleasant heft to the palate. Solid.

Misc.: Best by Aug. 12, 2018

Picked this up on a recent work trip to Albuquerque. Probably spent way too much money at a Trader Joe’s and at Jubilation Wine & Spirits. Generally had really enjoyed Marble brews and was expecting the same here. Can description read, “Yo, this stout is legit bro! It cruises low with a dark blend of roasted malts and bounces high with a pop of bright Pacific Northwest hops.” Also saw on the can that it was a 2017 GABF gold medal winner in the American Stout category. Nice.

Poured a black color with 1-to-2 fingers of frothy khaki tan head. Some slow moving bubbles creeping up along the sides of the glass. Excellent uneven foamy lacing. World-class foamy retention. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled closer than a black IPA than a stout initially. Specifically got chocolate syrup, dark chocolate, pine, dark fruit, toasted grain and roasted barley. For hops would lean toward Chinook, Cascade and Centennial. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted similar to the nose, reminding me more of a black IPA. Got woody pine, bitter dark chocolate, Chinook, dry Centennial, dark chocolate syrup, dark fruit, roasted barley and toasted grain. (Taste - 4.00)

Full body. Sticky-to-slick texture. Average carbonation. Roasty finish. (Feel - 4.25)

Just a solid stout, even if I think it would also be labeled a black IPA. (Overall - 4.00)

an interesting stout here, flirting with the black ipa category, this is way hoppier than most beers in this style, but it still hti the deep roasted grain and full bodied aspects of a classic stout. its well made like all the marble stuff, but strikes a weird balance that i dont totally love, despite this being objectively good ale. its near pitch black, not overly lively from the tap, with a big resinous nose thats weed-esque, oily, and piney, its almost more hop driven than grain driven in the nose, although i get a bitter black drip coffee component here. in the flavor i get a quick flash of port wine, the zesty citrus aspect of the hops come early, and then the roast, charred but not smoked on the grain side, good bitterness all the way though, but also a surprising freshness for the style because of the hops, an unexpected element that ends up really defining this one for me. a weird mix of flavors but it tastes good once i warm up to it a little bit. not my favorite beer i had in here, but a pretty interesting one! black ipa meets sturdy stout.
