FROTHINGSLOSH (6457) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the Virginia Beach brewpub this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a small tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was faint but dryish with a hint of roasty malts. The flavor was dry, malty, roasty and woody. Medium length dry, roasty and woody finish. Medium body. Meh.

Strykzone (6256) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2009
By far the darkest colored beer on tap at the Las Vegas brewpub. It was quite dark with lots of red highlights. A small almost white head. Very nice richly malted flavor is roasted. Some light smoke. Their boldest beer and one of their better ones.

This poured a very dark brown almost black color with a small eggshell head. Aroma was slightly roasted but pretty bland. Flavor was pretty watery, slightly roasted and sweet.

thirdeye11 (5975) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
(draught) medium clear brown with decent tan bubbles around the edges. Nose of lightly sweet brown sugar, mild watery coffee, touch of smoke, and some cereal grains. Taste of cereal grain, watery coffee, a touch of smoke, and light brown sugar. Hate to repeat the Mose but it tasted exactly like i expected after smelling it. Light body and lots of flavor for the style.

TheBeerGod (5912) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2005
From a sampler at the Gordon Biersch DC location on September 4th, 2005. Dark brown to black bodied. Roasty malts and light coffee. Some faint smoky notes and caramel.Taste has roasty malts, light coffee, dark chocolate and hints of cocoa. Body is medium-full with medium carbonation. Finishes roasty and sweet. I liked this best of the sampler and purchased a pint of this afterwards.

Draft sample @Syracuse location. Dark brown with thick head even in the sample glass. Nose is roast, hint of coffee and chocolate. Really nice roasted malts with the afore mentioned chocolate and coffee hints, finally a really nice brew at this place.
