so-so, a bit too much hop bitterness for my liking in a stout

L - black with a tan colored head
S - fresh dank, piny hops, grain, caramel
T - roasted barley, dank and pungent piny hops, caramel, chocolate
F - creamy and smooth, punishing pungent bitter finish with lingering pine
O - I have a hard time calling this an American stout. It seems more like an American Black Ale to me, especially with its huge bitter finish (seemed more like 90ibu rather than the 65ibu the brewer's website indicates). For a stout it's far too hop forward for me. As a beer in general, I loved it!
