DocJitsu (1654) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with an espresso head. Rich, greasy, ash tray, and caramelized malt aromas. Mouthfeel is bit of a let down. Too light for a beer this big. Flavors all represent the aromas. Just not prominent enough. Missed opportunity right here.

Fatehunter (2206) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Pours a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich roasted malt, toast, burnt wood and milk chocolate. The taste is rich malt with good balance, a touch of pine and coffee bitterness. The texture is silky smooth and light. Wonderful. An exceptional brew.

VinegarStroke (381) - Napa, Alabama, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle: deep brown, light head and moderate lace. Very dark roasted nose with coffee, chocolate and brown source. The aroma is good but verging on bringing burnt or too heavily roasted. Dry to off dry, not sour and low bitterness. The palate is creamy but lacking in depth & complexity of flavor.
