COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Stout, full-bodied, roasted, and highly hopped.
Each dawn is clear. Cold air bites the throat. Thick frost on the pine bough. Leaps from the tree snapped by the diesel. On the darkest days of the year, light becomes a luxury. Just when you think you cannot penetrate the darkness... SNAP! Light pierces through the roasted pine forest.

Can poured into a pint glass is black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and pine. Taste is similar with roasted malt up front and piney hops taking over. Palate is medium carbonation is average. No real lacing noted. Overall, and OK stout, very hoppy for a stout.

16 oz. can from Total Wine in Norfolk, VA. Cola-like dark brown pour with a frothy off-white head. As soon as the can is opened roasted coffee is detected from a few feet away but then an unexpected amount of piney and grapefruit hops take over pushing the roasted malt to the background. The resulting flavor is more of a black IPA than that of a stout. Which is not entirely a bad thing. Very good overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5332) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with a small soapy brown head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry, roasty, toasty and had moderate floral hops with wood and coffee underneath. The flavor was strong floral hops, roasty malts, vanilla, wood and a bit of grapefruit that came out as it warmed. The finish was long, dry and hoppy.Fairly full bodied and creamy. Solid.
