16oz can dates Feb 22 2019. Poured into tulip glass.

Pour: dark brown with solid 2 finger head. Tons of sheet lacing that sticks and stays. Really looks good.

Nose: subtle malt sweetness, a little hops, vanilla and chocolate. Somewhat odd.

Taste: someone else said chocolate and hops competing and not well...I agree. Oddly metallic tasting with bitter coffee/hops dominating.

Mouthfeel: ok but maybe a little thin. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: not really enjoying this and will likely drain pour the last half. I wouldn’t bother trying.

A very nice stout sampled on tap at a local bar. Pours a deep dark rich brown color with some creamy white head and beautiful looking sheets of lacing. Really looks very appealing. Smells of a great, well-balanced mix of dark chocolate and medium roast coffee, in addition to roasted nuttiness, caramel, vanilla, bread, malt and some milder hops. Taste follows the nose, and the mocha flavors don’t overwhelm like they do in some other stouts or imperial stouts. This one had the depth and complexity of a higher ABV imperial stout without the deeper alcohol burn. Smooth, moderately creamy, full mouthfeel that coated the palate. Good carbonation. Really a pleasure to sip and savor.

On tap at the Burning Bridge in Wrightsville, PA. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Initial impression is bitter and chalky, with dark chocolate and hops competing (and not very kindly) for your attention. Mouthfeel is oddly astringent - again, the chalkiness dominates. It's not particularly smooth, it's not exactly rough, it's just...odd. Finish is more of the same.
This shouldn't be classified as a stout. Or at least it ought to have a warning label or disclaimer. Would not try again.
No, wait: will AVOID in the future.

Pours dark brown with a thin mocha cap that fades to a ring, but laces the glass liberally. Aroma is unpleasantly hoppy and acrid with only slight roasted malt tones peeking their way through. Flavor is fortunately much better balanced by a slightly sweet malt presence that brings cocoa and roast into the mix. Finish is dry and bitter. Not great.

Canned 11/28/18
Pours a large foamy creamy 1 finger head nice retention and soapy lacing, basically pitch black beer

Nose brings a ton of piney spicy hops, hint of dark roasty malt, but pretty much just hops

Taste brings more of the same, loads of piney spicy hops, quite bitter, a bit of creamy base malt, a touch of chocolate and roast but barely, little citrus rind too

Mouth is a bit thin and watery light carb

Overall this beer was offensive and atrocious. This was not a stout in any way whatsoever, and was just a much of terrible hops. Lord hobo should stick to being a great bar and stop brewing beer, with beers like this and boom sauce they are insulting the craft beer industry!
