Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark brown color with red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is great. I get a lot of caramel and roasted malt with some pine and citrus hops. The flavor is roasted/burnt malt, coffee and chocolate, but I also get a lot of bitter pine and orange notes. The alcohol is completely hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice hoppy stout.

Bottle shared at the LCBS 10. I’m not a fan of hoppy stouts. Bitter hoppy flavors with coffee and licorice as a supporting cast.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. A black beer, clear-looking, and with a big, rocky, dark beige head. It tried to escape the bottle on its own when I popped the cap, but nothing spilt. It has a wonderful hoppyness to match the else coffeeish, roasted aroma. Green pinecones, citrus peel, grapefruit, coffee, roasted malts and even more coffee. The flavor has loads of coffee, generous amounts of hops and some notes of alcohol. Resiny, coffee-ish, bitter (both coffee-bitter and hop-bitter)flavor and finish with a touch of warming alcohol. Dry, and a bit carbonated maybe. Wow, a wonderful beer, combining the hops and darkness in a wonderful way. Make more of this one! 101006
