L: Very dark with orange to brown lacing. 1 finger off-white head
S: Notes of chocolate, but a little bit sharper, perhaps a sort of black licorice twang.
T: Good flavors but not well balanced. Tastes like most stouts but after-taste comes abruptly.
M: Carbonation definitely helps to blend these flavors together.
O: It's alright, I don't know if I'd drink it again because I favor Left hands fade to black, but I was craving a stout and it satisfied my craving.

Can at Old Chicago.

Pours a black colour with a small off white head of foam.

Things got weird. ..I get no roasted malt, maybe a hint or 2 of chocolate, but the smell I get the most is a fruity tartness.

Tastes like it smells, complete with that fruity tartness.

Good mouthfeel.

I read a few reviews after drinking this limited Upslope brew and didn't see a mention of any tartness. Doesn't fit the style anyways. Infection?

Edit: yep, it is referred to so I guess this is what the brewer intended.

Pours a very dark black, and smelled coffee right off the bat. The head went away about immediately. The nose has plenty of coffee and chocolate and some toasted walnuts. Flavor is pretty good. Not too bold like other stouts. Lots of chocolate and coffee and for being over 8%, there are no trace amounts of alcohol. Dry finish with lingering flavors of coffee and chocolate. Very good!
