  • Pours opaque with the foam acting and looking just a like a stouts: mocha, thick, creamy, and rich. Great retention with some sexy lacing.

    Aroma is first, with the cap opening, citrus hops that explode. This calms down and the malts step forward. Mildly sweet, chocolate, ash, and roast come through.

    Taste is along the lines of a stout. Mild chocolate flavor transition to molasses and sweetness. The end brings citrus hops to the palate as roasted malt it detected. Both last into the finish with a touch of coffee here and there. Alcohol burns late.

    Big body beer with ample carbonation. Creamy in the mouth adds to the depth of the beer. Dries the mouth.

    Much more of a well rounded beer than Either. Sweetness is not a major part of this beer but the dark, drier malts. Much more of a stout than a black IPA, reminding of something that Three Floyds would cook up. Enjoy!
