3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 The flavors that stand out to me with this brew are alcohol and chocolate. The combination of those flavors I find pleasant. The mouth feel is thinner than I like a stout, but with a effervecient carbonation that is really enjoyable. I find a little banana in the finish as well. Overall nice beer that I would have no problem reaching for again. Orig rate 1/29/13...2.9. Aroma of coffee. Sips roasty with big coffee. Nice medium csrbonation. Very smooth and Sessionable with little alc taste even when served cold. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Body is medium, but it is a enjoyable texture, not too thin as I thought before.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Opaque black color, tan head, heavy cobwebs of lace. Taste is toasted malt and oak-y mocha that moves smoothly through the palate to a medium finish. Not quite balanced, perhaps past it’s "drink by" date.

Fles bij melgers vandaan. Zwart met een crème kraag. Smaak en geur redelijk aan de droge kant met as en een trekkende afdronk. Veel CO2 alsof het bier iets te ver is doorvergist.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
May 5th, 2014 - Lost Coast provides us with our staple drinking for television this night, an opal black beer which, in our make shift wine glass, does indeed look like the dark side of an eight ball, a dull sheen coming from the ceiling light. The aroma features charcoal and raisins, though given the cold temperature, I don’t get much more than these two dimensions in the olfactory. The carbonation is notably heavy and fuzzy - good for clearing out food and grease - but the palate is surprisingly light. More charcoal and raisin here too, and not much else, but that’s okay. For chilling with friends on a ragged couch years past its retirement date, this does the trick.
