Out Of Bounds Stout

12 oz single from Total Wine, Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Extraordinary that I have never reviewed this.
Pour gives a lovely creamy head on top of dark brown body. Light brown, mahoghany highlights. Head is well retianed and produces some great lace. Good looking, perhaps the srtongest attribute of the beer.
Roasted malts are really quite bitter and the mouthfeel has a medium body. Bitter and dry finish. Creamy charcoal. Stylistically very good.
The bitterness here seesm to build quite significantly and surprisingly, by the end of the beer, it gets a bit bothersome. Lingers in the aftertaste along with a classic, dry note. A touch of dry chocolate in there as well.
Pretty much in style, but the bitterness seemed a bit high too me. this subtracted from the drinkability somewhat.
