jimhilt (2478) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours with a one finger khaki head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Chocolate nose and flavor is roasted chocolate, dry chocolate finish. Thin, not malty enough and low ABV (7%) for a RIS. $5.49 for a 330ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, Vt.

obguthr (4764) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2012
Licorice, tar, tobacco, and fudge nose, pretty strong. black, thick, beige head. Light body considering the robust aroma. Licorice and fudge flavor. tobacco throughout. Finishes with tar. Will not have broad appeal, but I really dug it, just a little thin.

DYCSoccer17 (3509) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
11.2 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is quite strange. It is a bit salty with some mild smokiness and some metallic roastiness. This is pretty difficult to enjoy. Opaque black body with a moderate tan head and not too much in the way of lacing. Starts salty, cloying, and mildly roasted. Lots of mineral body here. Becomes a little floral, before a roasty and somewhat coffee flavoring comes through towards the end. Kind of swampy and thin. Not such a great example of the style.
