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.

Capa (2209) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Dark with a small head. Aroma has light roasted malt, some molasses, plenty of citrus hops. Medium bodies. Flavor is packed full of American hops. Background roasted malts. Good brew but would have liked a more powerful malt profile instead of the hops.

Tap: Jet black with a tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma of broccoli when being cooked. It has an interesting zing in the flavor as if the malts are crashing with the hops instead of blending which is ok in this case. It has an intense earthy taste followed by spices like nutmeg.

jeremytoni (3011) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2011
From a can poured a brown color with a small amount of head. More of a hoppy flavor than a malty flavor as expected with a lingering finish.

GT2 (9177) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 17, 2011
16oz can. NEEDS A PICTURE!!! Pours a clear cola with a medium, tan head dissipating quickly. Big green apple nose (acetaldehyde) with soy sauce and vegetal DMS. Tart apple taste with continuing vegetal DMS. Very gritty, powdery mouthfeel. Wildly tart back end. Overall green and cooked veggies abounding. Drainpour.

Pours black into an English pint. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Thin with resin and chocolate aromas. Sweet hot chocolate upfront turning to resin before the lasting charred resin finish.

Nanokeg into a pint glass. Pours a very dark translucent brown with a nice tan head with great retention. Taste is a little mild but pleasant. Lightly roasted coffe, dark chocolate, and slight hop bitterness. Palate is extremely thin for a stout which was dissapointing but very easy to drink none the less. Not bad but far from exciting.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Can from Canal’s in Lawrenceville, NJ. Pours a near black with greyish/rd highlights and a thin quickly dissipating dirty white head. Odd roasted cereal aroma with a little burnt coffee. At first, this beer reminded me quite a lot lot Rogue’s Morimoto Black Sobi - it has some sort of light vegetable thing going on. After a few sips you start to get some dark chocolate, toffee and deeply roasted malt. Very, very light texture and quite a lot of carbonation. Finishes surprisingly dry for a stout.

Draft. Light chocolate aroma, deep brown to black color, light tan head. Decent stout but body is a little too thin.
