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.

Draft @ 4th ave pub. Smells of roasted nots and chocolate. Tastes of coffee, toffee woth a cigarish guinniss malty aftertaste. Not bad

Nickls (2168) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2010
(Old BA rate - sampled the 2005 version of Diesel that was tapped at Blind Tiger) Poured with a thin white head, and had a dark ruby brown color. Malt up front with some dark fruit and a touch of hop bitterness. Like the aroma, the malt shows up first but instead of fruity is much more of a roasted and chocolate quality. Dryish finish. Medium to thin MF, with a very low carbonation level that is expected for the style. Decent drinkability, and not too overwhelming on any front. A well balanced and easy drinking brew. Overall, this is not a powerhouse brew and not too showy. However, it is a very well balanced and tightly packaged brew.

daknole (10740) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Almost a black pour. Rich tan head. Aroma is roasted as hell with some bitter chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor is bitter and roasty. Some chocolate and coffee are there. But its quite roasty.

tgncc (3048) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2010
The aroma is roasty, with a note of bread and butter. The appearance is a dark brown/black, tan head. The flavor is dry, roasty, again the bread and heavy butter (I donít know if this is a defect or infection). The finish is a bittering due to the roasted malts. Medium body, a little thin for the style. Not bad.

blipp (7618) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasty aroma with some sweet malty hints. The flavor has roasted malts, coffee, a light swetness, and a hint of hoppy bitterness at the end. Decent.

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at Barcade. An above average stout. Pours a charming black with a thick, voluminous tan head. Aroma of well roasted malts and coffee. Flavor packs more of the same. Burnt malts and some smokiness. Hops are detectable in the tail. Full bodied and creamy, this beer is a smooth drink.

dagimp (882) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2010
On tap at Horizonís restaurant Philly; they always seem to have at least one Sixpoint beer on tap. Pours dark as midnight with one finger of thick head which eventually dissipates. Lots of lacing. Nose is of coffee... and some more coffee. Mouthfeel is thick but slightly dry. Taste is of coffee with some plums. This is a very creamy stout. The menu described it as an oatmeal stout and Iíd guess this is correct due to the smooth and creamyness of the beer. This beer really grabs at your mouth as itís soft and creamy yet dry and tingly at the end. It really lands right inbetween a regular stout and an imperial without being heavy or drenched in alcohol. I really liked it and would happily drink it again.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Growler sampled on 6/28/08: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a wispy, clingy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty dark caramel and milk chocolate with some light plum character. Body starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation along with lots of dark chocolate and a touch of roasty coffee in the finish. Pretty smooth and drinkable with good body.

Dark rich pour, love this one. Always a hefty body, nice roasted malts and cream. Aroma has some coffee and rich roasted malts. Flavor has coffee and bitter roasted malts with a nice finish.
