Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours near black with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and dark grains with a bit of a earthy smoke note underlying. Flavor is similar with dark grains and backing notes of roast, earthiness and light smoke.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Very dark brown, near black color. Thin khaki head. Couple dots of lace. Nice smoke in the nose, some roast malts. That smell is amplified in the flavor. Huge big ashy smoke, and heavy roast. Maybe one of the ashiest beers I’ve ever had. Smells like an ashtray, but it’s not terrible. I’m interested in this. Some dark fruit, raisin, licorice notes. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Bigger bitterness. Some light alcohol warmth. drinks like maybe 9-10%. Maybe a light bite in the finish. Damn good ashy smokey schwarzbier. This appeals to me.

PorterPounder (5593) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Pours a jet black with a sticky mocha colored that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has a strong roasted essence to it with some earthy herbal notes that I cannot accurately identify. Flavor has some burnt wood notes, some licorice, creosote, a touch of bourbon barrel aging. Mouthfneel has a nice smoothness to it, Unique and solid.

Sampled at 2014 RBWG Grand Tasting. Black, ring of tan foam. Smells like spicy coffee, with some piney and grassy notes, too. Taste is coffee, a weird medicinal flavor (not bad, just weird), and some woody, oaky flavors.
