WV tick! Dark brown. Nose is dark roasted malts, some burnt coffee. Flavors follow nose. A bit harsh and one dimensional on the roasted malts but decent.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 In can, poured black with quick foam fade. Smell of grain and roast.flavor is a light roast with coffee and chocolate bitters and chalky aftertaste. Pretty sure the miner dropped some coal in.

RBSG 2016 shared at the Grand Tasting. Can. Medium/dark brown, odd perfumey aroma. Palate features thin roast with slightly sour character. I appreciate the state tick, but Iím beginning to see why West Virginia isnít known for its beer....

Sampled at rgsg. Do not know who brought this but there is was on the table and no one had taken a sip. Poured jet black with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts and not much else. Light to medium in body which was surprising considering how black this was Flavor shows chocolate and some coffee. Quite OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Dark pour with tan head. I guess some light malt aromas. Flavors are super light, light roasted, maybe a touch of sweetness. Lacking body.
