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.

It pours a dark brown and gives a nice one inch off-white, almost slightly tan head about an inch thick and then gently dies to a half centimeter. It leaves some nice lacing. The smell is hoppy and has some slight coffee notes in the background. The taste is basically the same. The mouthfeel/palate is about a medium, maybe close to heavy, kinda creamy, I like it. Overall, good American Stout that should please the masses as far as Sixpoint puts it out. I’ll get this one again.

PorterPounder (6705) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Growler Country. Pitch black, motor oil like pour, bubbly mocha colored head, nice sticky web of lacing. Licorice and creosote find their way into the aroma. Solid, bold flavor with bittersweet baker’s chocolate, some earthy topsoil notes, a touch of espresso. Smooth mouthfeel, just a hint of chalkiness. Sixpoint is proving to be a consistent, solid brewer.

Can, as well as tap, Tap was slightly better Appearance: black with a tan head, a bit more of a head on tap (either that or I suck at pouring) Aroma: Light sweetness, some rich dark chocolate, light bitterness, caramel Flavor: Some bitterness from the chocolate balanced out nicely with caramel, excellent Palate: Semi-refreshing, a bit of sweetness and a TINY hint of alcohol My favorite beer by them I have had, which is odd since I tend to not love Stouts.

TXBadger (2220) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours almost black with tan head. Very thin on the pour. Roasted malt, some pine, and a bit of caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. This beer is interesting, but I’m not sure it knows what it wants to be.

Darkmagus82 (2128) - - JUN 16, 2014
Transfer from BA review on 5-17-12 - Poured from can into pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep brown color with a large billowing tan head. The head has large carbonation bubbles entrapped within. It has great retention and once faded gives a very nice level of lacing. Smell –The aroma is big of dark roasted malts mixed with a pine and earthy hop aroma. Taste – A taste of dry dark malts great the tongue. While alone at first they are quickly meet with bitter hop flavors. The hops are predominantly of a pine flavor with hints of earthiness mixed within. These flavors persist the whole rest of the taste and at the end leave a bitter dry aftertaste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body was very creamy; much creamier then I would have anticipated from the strength and style. Its carbonation was a little on the low side. While the creaminess was nice for the roasty flavors it could have used a tad higher carbonation as it would have quieted some of the bitter hop flavors quite well. Overall – Not really my kind of brew. The roast and hop didn’t meld as well as some other dark IPA’s and the mouthfeel was a little off for the flavor profile. It was roast and bitter through and through.

Pours a deep black with only the slightest ruby highlights when held to a light. Large sticky off-white head with lots of lacing. Thin and almost dry roast smell. Thin mouth feel. Grainy and almost burnt flavor.

annunz123 (945) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Chocolate, coffee, nuts, and raisins in the aroma. Flavor starts bittersweet and nutty, with some coffee/chocolate bitterness in a somewhat chalky finish. Pretty good, but not as good as some other beers from sixpoint.
