It's nice to be able to finally brew some beer without restrictions on it. we came from Colorado where we could brew or try anything. We've been waiting 7 years to make a stout and we harnessed all that frustration into this batch of beer.

We didn't get caught up in the parameters of a specific style we just brewed a big fat hoppy beautiful beer. The timing of the law change couldn't have been better for us, because it has taken until this summer for us to get set up in our new brewery. We finally have some capacity to experiment with some new style. This could lead into a seasonal offering from us in the future. For now we're just glad we can satisfy the demands of the folks who have been on us since day 1 to make a stout.

Malt: 70/80 crystal malt, chocolate malt, black malt, roasted malt

Hops: Centennial, Willamette and cascade - on the dry hop!

Bottle share. This exceeded what I was expecting. Pours a very thick and dark brown/black with a nice sudsy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, roast coffee, and burnt malts. Flavor was bold roasted coffee, chocolate, and some burnt malts and light smoke, some leather, and hints of dark fruits. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, a bitter bite on the end.

Taste is of citrusy hop oils, licorice, tar/tobacco, roasted and chocolatey malts .... Has a big bitter dry hop bite ... Finish has a big lingering citrusy dry hop to it and roasted chocolate .... Mouthfeel is very oily and slick ... Very black IPA-ish ... Good stuff

NikkTwist (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Draft at Moriartys. Opaque black pour with a generous dense tan head. Rows of thick lace. Feels big and full but not overpowering. Quite nice. Unforced notes of dark chocolate, cold coffee, charcoal, black pepper, liquorice, browned stone fruit and berries. Darkly sweet. Molasses. Blackberry cordials. Tobacco. Blood oranges. Solid mix of flavors. Well balanced. Refined and understated. Impressive.
