COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pssst. Come a little closer. Weíve got a little something shakiní that may interest you. Is it a Stout or an American Black Ale? Well, well, well, you can never tell. Eyes on the prize, put your nose in the glass. Donít drink too fast. Gotta make it last. Just let it roll across your tongue like a hopped-up velvet thundercloud.

Donít tell me this stout ainít got no hops. You just gotta sniff around. Come on over to the dark side of the street.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
13 oz draught at Pint Room, Dublin. Black; foamy tan head that dissipates into a light covering. Good lacing. Aroma roast, coffee, chocolate. Medium-full body, predominantly roasty with coffee. Very good, yet very forgettable; I had multiple Dragonís Milkís after this and they blew this beer away.

12 ounce bottle. A chocolate creamy hoppy stout that feels a bit less than its abv. Very drinkable.

jsporrer (417) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2016
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.

markwise (5082) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2016
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.

Macegan75 (803) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle from Matt McCue. Thanks, bro. Pours black with slight brown hew and some foam that fades. Aroma is grilled stone fruits, smoke, and brown malt. Flavor is similar with black malt and coffee. Finish is a slight coffee bitterness that fades nicely. Nice beer.

Turboninja (427) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2016
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.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and citrus hops. Flavor is the same with some bitterness on the finish. The hops really blend well with the roasted malts.
