beastmaster (204) - Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2013
1 pint+9.4oz bottle. Beautiful pour that looks like a thick stout with sticky lacing. This beer is thick and delicious. I have never had an American black ale this good. Aroma is interesting, don?t know if I?d call it smokey, maybe roasted malts. Sweet start bitter finish. Almost stouty. Great beer.

A great extra from a trade. Dark brown, thick and heavy, luscious and silky, rich chocolate, wood and pine. Delicious.

NeoHippie2 (792) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Fairly hoppy aroma with plenty of cedar. Hops come through in the flavor as well, with a nice roasty malt backbone to go with it. Cedar comes through in the finish as well. Abv is well-hidden too. A nice offering.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Black beer that looks cool. a spicy nose with earth and chocolate. Wow. This grabs the taste buds. Cedar is huge. So much brightness. Dark fruit and softer wood. Grape jelly. Truthfully there is so much going on. I would not want a lot of this but it is a lotof fun to sample.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottled 04JAN13 ABV listed as 11.0% Pours black with little foam, maybe a rim of light tan foam. Smells like leather, maduro tobacco and dank hops, some roasted malts, and a touch of vinyl. Taste is tobacco like a mutha. It really does remind me of a humidor - I’m uncertain of my feelings, yet, I keep drinking it quickly. I must like it....Full bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. I’m really blown away by this beer, and I am torn as to if it’s in the good way. WTF. Fuck it, I like it.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted and dark malts, some dough, a little bit of floral hops, some light chocolate/coffee, and hints of alcohol. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average to smooth texture. Pretty good but could be better.
