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.

Poured deep brown with a chunky krausen-looking head. Lots of creamy lacing. Nose is fresh picked hops with roasty flavor underneath. Very bitter flavor, maybe too much. Finish is mostly bitter but short.

Chocolate malt aroma. Palate is creamy. Tastes of roasted chocolate. Light spucy bitterness at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is woody, piney hops, followed immediately by roasted malts. Shoe polish and the spiciness of a rye. For me, it doesn’t work at all. The appearance is deep brown, nearly black. Glorious crown of lace; formidable. The flavor is big, woody hops, and oily. It’s soon followed by burnt cookie malts. I know what they are trying to do here, but it doesn’t quite land. Feels thick and viscous. The two very disparate flavors don’t quite work. A rare miss from the boys at Sixpoint.

Dark brown with a foam tan head. Roasty malt with hints of nuts and coffee. A bit burnt in the finish.

Tap at Evening Star. Poured a dark slightly murky brown color (like a soda) with an off-white head. Aroma was roasted notes, coffee, a little muddy. Flavor was extremely earthy hops, with roasted malts. Expected something more like a stout or porter, but this was pretty much what I expect when I drink a Black IPA. Hmmm.

Pours out almost black with a tiny white head. Aroma is of some sweetness, chocolate, licorice and roast. Lightly watery body with some notes of chocolate, herbal hops, vegetables, licorice, dark roast. meh.

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.

4 pack thanks to Matt. Hoppy aroma but big creamy stout. Slight chocolate roast. Tasty and sessionable.

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 (6723) - 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.
