p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Looks perfectly black. 1 finger thick brown head. Smells of darkness with a bit of a yeastness like my first homebrew. Tastes like chocolate and some bitterness. Has a bit of a weird short after taste that I can’t put my finger on. Great lacing. Overall 8 of 10.

popery (1850) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Dark chocolate and cola are strong in the aroma. It also smells sweet and toasty, like fresh bread and caramel. Unfortunately, it’s all a tad weak. The taste is marred by the body which is fairly thin. It’s kinda fizzy and washed out. Fairly sweet with roast and mineral hop bitterness in the finish. A touch of booze throughout. Pours about the color of black coffee with a dissipating beige head. Decent but nothing special.
