look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a "balloon" glass.
Deep and dark, with a moderate-to-short head of tan foam.
Aroma-Citrussy hops and dark malt
Taste-Bitter black coffee and citrus rind. Flavors seem to fight each other rather than complementing. A bitter mix of flavors that don't play well together.

Pours jet black with a dark tan head. In the aroma, dry chocolate and almost leathery. In the taste, a decent roast with some dry coffee, and a touch sweet. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry coffee and a note of dry chocolate in the aftertaste. A bit thin, but nice coffee and notes of chocolate.

"Best by Feb 2014" printed on the bottle.

The beer pours a half finger of rich brown head over a nearly black body. The head disappears in moments. No lace noted.

Malt and baker's chocolate are strong. A little coffee fills it out.

Malt and very bitter coffee are the main flavors here. Almost needs some creamer or something...

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and meh. It seems like it ought to be creamier.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of coffee, some roasted malts. Taste is bitter, coffee, lots of hops, a bit unbalanced and off in some ways, not what I was expecting from a stout. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall, while not terrible, I found this beer to be over hopped for the style.

A. looks correct for a stout dark in color with a sub zero head very little lacing

s, it has a very burnt smell like burnt coffee grounds

T. this is the bad part not that impressive. taste more like a german swartz than a stout

M. vert watery again more of a German Swartz

O. not bad if they would relabel it is not a stout but more a black ale,

Poured from a bottle with a badass label into a tulip glass. Lot 223 - best by 3/13.

A: Pours a fairly thick completely opaque black. A one finger khaki/mocha head forms full of tight little bubbles...head sticks around for the duration. No legs. Plenty of lace. A damn fine looking stout.

S: Wow - a ton of piney hops in the nose for sure. They call this a "west coast stout" and I'm realizing now that they're referring to the massive hop character going on here. Checking the label...110 IBU...yep, that'll do it! Some chocolate and char also, but mainly a big ol wollap of hops right to the sniffer.

T/M: First thing you get is the bitterness detected in the nose...piney, resinous, bitter hops. Maybe a touch of that roastiness in the midde, but man...mostly just this overwhelming, somewhat unpleasant bitterness all the way from the front of the palate to the back. Both of the dark malts used (Roasted Barley and Black Malt) are known to be bitter as well so that's probably not helping. There's really not a lot of flavor here...not even hop flavor to accompany the bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty decent. Surprisingly creamy considering the pour looked thin. I'd call it medium-bodied but somewhat chewy and coats the mouth nicely...higher than average carbonation for the style, but that's the least of my concerns.

O: I hate to say it cause I really wanted to like this for so many reasons, but I think this is a miss...or at least a miscategorization. Maybe this could go in the Black Ale/Black IPA category and be a success. But as a stout - even a hoppy stout - I just don't think it delivers any complexity at all. Completely one-dimensional in the direction of the hops. I'm going to age a few bottes of this and revisit when those hops die down...maybe it'll be better with age. Bummer.

Magnificent, rocky tan head on a black brew.

Smells of nuts and roasted malts.

First thing noticed upon drinking is the thin-body, followed by faint notes of pine, grain and a little pepper even.

Not going to dig too deep for things that aren't there on this one.

I poured this beer into a snifter, it has a black colored body with a large mocha colored head that hangs around for a while
The smell is of roasted malt, not much else.
The taste is of roasted malt and some chocolat.
The mouth feel is ok, has a very bitter after taste. Overal not impressed and not really good

I can't believe somebody tasted this and thought "Oh wow, this is good! Let's try and market it to make money". What I really can't believe is that it did. Down the drain it goes.

The aroma and appearance are true to the style. The pour is thick and syrup like. Night black with a thin tan head, the flavor is strongly cough medicine and biting alcohol. It's mouthfeel is thick. A big disappointment. Missing the normal roasted chocolate and strong coffee flavor.
