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.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beerfest. This was definitely the best of the Sixpointers I tasted. Not a great stout but quite drinkable. Nice smoky roast tastes.

Nice lacing. Good color-cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of hops, roasted malt and coffee. Flavor had mostly hops, pine, and roasted malt. Thin consistency makes it more like a black IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Hand bottle obtained in trade from Shane aka sixpoint, thanks for the opportunity. Poured a dark brown with faint ruby highlights and a huge fluffy/creamy off white head that stuck itself to everything on the way down the glass. Smells of cocoa, brown sugar, and a bit of caramel. Taste is chocolaty roasty with burnt and brown sugars in the mix. Finishes kind of dry with a touch of alcohol and bitter roast that lingers. Body is a bit on the thin side, Mouthfeel is bubbly, slightly oily, carbonation is on the high side. Decent brew overall, I would definitely session this one. I really would have liked a bit more body, but its great as is.

italarican (1520) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Tap at Sweet Afton. A good looking pour: pure black with a thick and frothy khaki head. Aroma is predominantly roasted malt, coffee notes, with a decent amount of resin in the background. In contrast, the flavor is more earthy with the roasted malt more in the background. Flavors of wet coffee grounds, spruce, ethanol, and dark chocolate. Roasted malt again takes center stage in the finish, with the hops falling to the background again. Back and forth it goes. The flavors themselves are overall simplistic, but it was an intriguing ride.
