COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Black pour with a big fizzy dark tan head and light oily lacing ..... Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, dark chocolate, licorice and citrusy hop oils ..... 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

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.

12 ounce bottle. Opaque black pour topped by a dense rocky tan head and big clinging lace. Aroma has loads of dark roasted malt, tar and smoked brisket. Flavor is subtle, with dark coffee, smoked meat and espresso beans coming to mind. This is a truly amazing brew. Best served at about 55-60 degrees and sipped slowly. It is deceptively subtle and delicious. The 9% ABV is well hidden and makes this a brew to be really careful with. Enjoy and experience.

black with a thick tan head; roasted malt and citrusy hop aroma; nice, roasted malt base; a big citrusy hop and roasted malt finish; a really big, hopped up Imperial Stout

This is black w/ a great big head. It’s fruity w/ a bunch of autolyzed yeast character. It’s got a nice cherry-like fruit character but is a bit overly bitter and oxidized. This is decent but kind of harsh.

gregwilsonstl (2615) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Dark black like oil. Thick khaki head. Smells like an ipa. Thick chocolate. Several layers, it starts off like a stout and finishes like a thick black ipa. Hoppy finish for a stout....works well though. I dig it.

3.5
Tessic (1193) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
This imp stout poured a deep black colour with a nice big creamy brown head. Scents include smoke, wieners and a little cocoa. First swig was bursting with flavours of burnt malt, molasses, and a little camphor. Finish is smoking roasty with a nice light hop.
