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.

[5310-20130429] Tap. Coffee-infused toasted grains aroma. Black mahogany body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Boozy roasted malty grains flavour has a long sweet grains aftertaste. Full body. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

Best by 16MAY12 A: dark brown, two fingers of dark peanut foam falls slowly to a sheet of the same. Near sheet lace. S: toasted malts, coffee grounds, hint of vanilla, hint of cocoa. Dry T: Soil, bittered and toasted malts. A little too much scorch flavor. Some nuttiness and some coffee. M: Medium bodied with low carb and semi dry finish. O: Not a bad beer at all. I actually think this would be better around the 90 day mark. Serving type: can 12-20-2011

BillWyce (868) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2013
From notes: Can poured into Sam Adams glass. Pours opaque black with a 3-finger dark tan head. Roasty, chocolatey aroma with a light burnt note. Body is medium-to-full, somewhat oily, with a lightly astringent finish. Flavor is roasty with some coffee underneath and a lingering burnt note. Has a light citrus note as well.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a dull black with with light beige head. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt, chocolate and roast with a bit of hops. Solid on the palate. Pretty good.

nuplastikk (5171) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
16oz can. Burgundy hued black-brown. Soapy, foamy beige head. Sort of like a Brown IPA. Nice balance between the citrus hops and the brown malt. Not overbearing, the big malts and accompanying ABV are well incorporated. Toffee caramel chocolate. Well done.

16oz can to pint glass, dark brown in appearance with large frothy head. Taste is dry roasted malt, chocolate, with some big bitter hops in the finish. Pretty smooth. Not bad.

ROGUE (2152) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2013
12oz can. Pours an espresso brown color with a sturdy tan head that falls to a ring. Strong scent of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate.Taste mimics the aromas with more java and roasted cocoa beans coming through. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Very smooth with moderate carbonation.

16 oz can. The pour is a dark-ish brown, but way too thin for a stout. Head was humongous, and white, unlike anything I'd expect. The lacing is surprisingly good, but that's about it. The aroma is overly citrusy with hints of roast and chocolate. The taste is almost that of a Black IPA, and not anything stout like that you could think of. The mouth feel is really thin, and overly dry like the IPA. I can't wait to finish this. Damn ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
