Commercial Description

Diesel’s the quintessential super-hoppy American stout.
Rich, robust and deep brown-black, this beer will linger in your mouth like a streak of tar. Yet it’s surprisingly sessionable and effervescent, too. It starts with nutty roasted malts, which get combined with Columbus and Northern Brewer hops. Another dose of Columbus in the dry-hopping stage gives it a defiantly hoppy character. Poured in a glass, the head becomes thick and cappuccino-like, with lacing down to the last sip.

    Pours a very creamy looking black with an ample tan head that has good retention with some chunky style lacing.
    Aroma is dominated by piny hops with some roasted malt and a touch of cocoa in the backround, actually smells faintly burnt.
    The taste is a big blast of piny hops that finishes dry. After blowing out the taste buds it took more than half of the pint to get to the malt. The malt tastes very roasty with a bitterness around the edges from being burnt I suspect.
    Mouthfeel is creamy and full bodied. The low carbonation serves this beer very well and makes it easy to drink.
    I went into this thinking "Hoppy Stout" but came out thinking more "Black IPA". TRY IT I SAY!
