3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a very dark brown to black with a tan head and plenty of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of citrusy hops. Medium body with some carbonation. Starts as a smooth roasted malt flavor that quickly turns to somewhat bitter and stays on the palate. OK, but not my favorite style. Too much lingering bitterness for my preference.

On draft at Stogies and Stouts 2016. Pours a stout brown with a tan head. Nose is huge piney bitterness, roast, cocoa, and black coffee. Flavor is similar with roast, dark chocolate, huge pine, and black coffee. Medium in body and not my favorite, as I am not a fan of hoppy stouts.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle@home, from Constantinoís, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong aroma of dark berries, malts and bitter licorice. Pitch black color with small light beige head. Strong taste of dark berries, malts and some licorice. Averagely balanced with medium taste spectrum and long hoppy aftertaste with malts. Light/medium body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, somewhat awkward hybrid of stout and black IPA. In addition way too light body.
