COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and surprisingly light-bodied. Malty sweetness and caramel flavors shift to distinctive dry-roasted malt notes.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks Jeff! Pours a hazy, dark brown appearance with a fluffy, deep brown head. Roasty dark malty, slight pinesol/cleanser, organic aroma. Burnt, roasty, dark chocolate malty flavor again with a piney, cleanser-like flavor and a bit of fruitiness. Some nice elements like some roasty espresso, but I am totally getting a cleanser flavor that Iím not fond of. I think itís just that the hops are piney and sappy that I get the pinesol flavor. That being said, it isnít that hard to drink.

Very dark brown color with a medium tannish head. First aroma had a distinct west coast aroma but upon resting the traditional 3F aroma comes out along with coffee notes, a burning alcohol feeling as it warms. Taste is mild coffee along with a lingering pine note. A medium to thin body helped by the frothy head that lingers. Gains some momentum as you drink it but not as impressive as itís price tag would lead you.

weihenweizen (1943) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2012
Refrigerated bomber poured into a shaker. Pours black with small dark brown hightlights and fluffy creamy big light brown head. Little lacing, medium creamy body, little carbonation, and light bitter hop aroma. Taste is roasted malt, some coffee, and finish is bitter dry hops. Best dry stout I have had.

maekchu (2458) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from kabutomushi. Thank you, sir. Piney hop aroma, with some dark chocolate (like a black IPA). Pitch black with a creamy dark head. Chocolate, wood, some citrus, very nice bitter aftertaste. Medium body. A very good hoppy mild stout.

KyotoLefty (6905) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 30, 2012
Bomber shared by Kabutomushi. Nose of orange, lemon, big hops. A little bit of chocolate too, maybe. Black with lovely lace. Flavor is Belgian orange chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and wood. Light burn from the hops. Rich, thick body. A bit sweet. Is this really a black IPA?

maxwelldeux (3959) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Pours thick and dark brown, not at all transparent. Rather full-headed, with a brown head. Carbonation disappears quickly. It really is shockingly light for being a stout.

Hop and dark chocolate aromas. Flavors of chocolate covered hops. Overall a pretty impressive stout.

GTCruiser01 (105) - California, USA - MAR 14, 2012
Black with a tannish brown small head that fades quickly. Aroma is a combination of a big roastiness balanced by a sweeter sugary chocolate. There is also a little smokiness and a decent amount of tart cherry in the smell. Flavor starts with a big deep roasted malt that goes quickly past a sweetness in the middle to a powerful sour-tart sweetness. A bit overpowering.
