It's a pretty fine toasty hoppy stout/ ipa... Good but not as smooth and loveable as I once remembered

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and dark chocolate notes with light hoppy notes also noticeable. Taste is a mix of rich roasted malt notes with some black chocolate notes with hints of residual sugar notes and light dry hoppy notes. Body is full with oily texture and good carbonation. Enjoyable but I think it would benefits from a barrel-aged treatment. GenDV138 (7579) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2016

On draft. The beer is a very dark brown with a thin tab head and tons of lacing. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, mild citrus, and bits of sweet cream. Taste is rich dark chocolate, coffee with cream, sticky dark malts, and hints of slight citrus flavors drifting in and out. It’s not really enough to be noticeable though. Palate is thick and sticky and lingers. This is a tasty beer. fidelis83 (2496) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2015
