Bottle from preismj, thanks! Great looking pour, black with a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt with coffee and dark chocolate in the background. Taste is light smoke, roastiness, meat, chocolate, coffee grind. Pretty light bodied, but with a long lasting finish, actually ends a bit sweet. A great beer, full flavored, surprised that the ABV isnt higher. Would drink a lot of this if I had the chance.

Pours dark brown with light cereal notes. Dry flavors drive the grain and roast nuts into a nice flavorful finish.

It smelled and tasted like fresh wort and it wasnt that fresh of a bottle. Not to style but I dont care it was delicious.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2012
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 Im not fond of. I think its just that the hops are piney and sappy that I get the pinesol flavor. That being said, it isnt that hard to drink.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2012
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 its price tag would lead you.

weihenweizen (3330) - 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 (3613) - 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 (9634) - 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 (4358) - Snohomish, 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.
