COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An Americanized version of a Foreign Extra Stout. It has a strong coffee-like roasted barley flavor and prominent roasted malt aroma. The American citrus hops lead to a brightness on the palate with a moderately dry finish. This rich stout pairs well with hearty fare like steak, BBQ and chocolate desserts.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a clear black (SRM 40) body....nose is cocoa, chocolatte, coffee, from the roasted malts, light herbal tones, slight citrus from the hops, no esters, balance to the malts.....taste, is coffee. chocolate, cocoa, slight citrus notes, with a moderate, hop roasted malt bittern finish, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, medium to heavy body, minimal alcohol, slight creaminess. The roasted malts, are just balanced by the bitterness of the roasted malts and the hops. The hop backbone is a bit light on complexity in both aroma and flavor, and could be a little more obviously "American". BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Draft. Roast-forward highly-hopped American stout creeping into Black IPA territory with its grassy cannabis and pine resin hop profile. Highly carbonated, apparent sweetness is medium, bitterness is high, acidity may be making carbonation seem high and rough. Peppercorn spice and tropical fruit playing in a bath of black malt and roast, and a little bit of cheese rind mustiness that I typically pick up in Black IPA / hoppy stout. One of the better beers to come out of Fate: highly bitter and roast-heavy but fits well within the style characteristics and seems mostly clean to me, but I don’t find it that interesting and the style is not something I regularly enjoy.
