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.

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 a dark black coffee with a dark tan head that laces well. Smells of roasted malts and citrusy hops. This is an interesting, although not a favorite, stout. I like hoppy beers, but this is just a bit too harsh. I had to force myself a little to finish this one. It seemed to me that the hops were in conflict, instead of in harmony, with the malt. But perhaps that's the intention. Worth trying for the novelty of it, but won't revisit this one.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance
Pitch black with 2 fingers of creamy, chestnut brown head. Great retention and lacing. You cannot see through this at all.

Nose
Dark chocolate, graham cracker, bread and hints of honey. Lighter notes of sugar coated oranges, grapefruit and pine.

Taste
Very, very bitter. A lot of the maltiness detected in the nose unfortunately drops out and the hops burst forth on the flavor profile. Sugar coated navel oranges, grapefruit and resinous pine. Lemon and grapefruit zest. Big floral notes coming through. Underneath all of the hops are hints of espresso, earth and bitter charcoal.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, creamy, slick and smooth.

Overall
The flavor is filled with hops. 110 IBUs...yep, that's about right. Not much of a Stout but a very nice Black IPA.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color, deep-deep brown color with a tiny brown colored head. The head fades rather quickly leaving a greatly level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and some spotty island of foam on the top of the brew.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt and some chocolate notes. Along with these smells are some aromas of a caramel and molasses sweetness and a bit of vanilla coffee. Rounding out the aromas is a bit of an earthy and herbal hop.

Taste – The taste starts out with a big dose of roasted malt and a moderately strong hoppy taste of an earthy nature. While there is chocolate in the nose, there really is none detected on the tongue. The caramel and molasses sweetness, that were also in the nose, are very light in the taste, with them largely lost more toward the middle to the end of the flavor profile. While the sweetness fades, a big coffee flavor comes to the tongue bittering the taste. Along with the bitter coffee, more hop of an earthy nature as well as a bit of an herbal and grassy flavor. Some flavors of char and toast also develop during the taste, with the combination of flavors at the end leaving a slightly bitter and rather roasted favor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and chewy with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The creamy body is quite nice for all the roasted flavors of the brew with all the dry roasted and bitter coffee flavors of the brew really soaking into the tongue.

Overall –Dry and bitter with a big coffee flavor in this one. It was actually a little too dry and hopped for a stout in my opinion, but if that is something you are looking for then this is certainly a good choice.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is black, opaque, not even feint hues on the edges; head is brown, solid initial presentation and some nice lacing.

Smell is sweet, chocolate, caramel malts, roasted malt comes through subtler, noticeable hop presence in an earthy scent.

taste is sweet, less chocolate, more coffee and caramel and roasted malts, not too cloying but sweeter overall than the scent; bitterness and hop flavors are earthy/grassy, hints of pine.

Mouthfeel is strong on the tongue, slightly cloying with some stronger lingering sweetness; bitterness compensates but hard to overcome for balance.

Overall, a little sweet for drinkable stronger stout, hop presence is decent but just hard to overtake the lingering malt sweetness and heavy hand on the darker malts.

Picked this up a few weeks back at the Buy-Rite in Jersey City, having never had this before nor any other beers from Full Pint. I didn't think that a Stout could have 110 IBU's and still be tasty and this nearly pulled that trick off. To me, this was more like a Black IPA or a hoppy Coffee Stout but as an American Stout, this seemed a bit of an anomaly, even though it went down easier than I anticipated.

Huge, huge head to this - to the point where I thought it was pretty excessive. Tan tan bubbles settled down to give this beer the appearance of a dark ice cream float. It was more than compensated by the gorgeous rings of lacing that stuck down the side of my pint glass as I worked my way through this. Lots of bitter chocolate up front that gave way to the pine and grapefruit in the back, with a hint of chili powder tossed in for good measure. Smooth and somewhat creamy, this was a beer that went down surprisingly easy given the potency of the hops and relative strength of the booze.

Yes, this was strong and just a tad gritty in the aftertaste as if there was a bit of burnt charcoal in this. While not roasted like a Porter, this could have been mistaken for a coffee version of that style. Had this been a Milk/Sweet Stout and backed off on the hops a bit, this would have been a wonderful beer. As it was, I enjoyed it for being mellow and flavorful while still packing enough of a punch, even if its impact wasn't that long-lasting.
