3.94/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A pitch black pour with a massive tan head perched upon the liquid; great retention and lacing

Smell: Leafy, resinous hops dominate, with the roasty malts hardly discernable underneath

Taste: While there is a bit of roasty and chocolate mocha character, up front, the leafy, resinous hops overwhelm the palate from start to finish with the stout elements returning to add a vague coffee tone in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This beer has to be way more than 40 IBUs and I wouldn't be surprised if it were 140 as it is an assault on the tastebuds; as others have noted, this is much more of an American Black than a stout (perhaps that is why they call it a "stout ale" using stout as more of an adjective than a style descriptor)

Thanks, aslamm75, for the opportunity

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a jet black body that I can only assume is the liquid wall of death color. There is a cocoa tan head that sticks in sheets on the glass and some microbubbles that pop out at the surface.

S- The pungent green fresh hop pellets aroma blends with some black char notes and some hints of black roasted malt come through in the finish.

T- The slightly sweet chocolate black roasted malt has an inky quality that grows as it opens and some pungent pine wood bitterness in the finish. There is a mellow char note with some chicory hints underneath and a tart hop note in the finish aswell.

M- The medium-full mouthfeel has a slight slippery finish

O- The mellow char and dark roasted black malts with slight sweetness is strong and nice and the tart green pungent hops are interesting with the chocolate qualities.

Smooth hoppy, fruity start with a bold chocolate finish. It grabs your taste buds before even hitting them. Amazing mixture of hops. A great dinner stout, light but just as filling as any other stout. A great beer to pair with a meat filled meal. Let it breathe for ten minutes and it tastes more like a stout than an ale.
