Coal Black and creamy smooth, this beer holds a light tan head and is surprisingly light in body - so it wonít fill you up. Thomas, WVís heritage was based on the hard-working Italian coal miners who worked the mines from the 1890s-1940s. The tap handle is the silhouette of a local coal minerís daughter.

Tap. Pours dark brown with thin, creamy beige head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, light earthy hops, light smoke, and faint vanilla. Flavor is roast and caramel malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; creamy, dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

Bottle shared by Jack, thanks! Pours black with a near white head that dissipates do the edges. Aroma has and earty/musty dark grains with a bit of chocolate supporting. Flavor has a thin but musty dark grain note with a hint of chocolate.

Bottle shared at tasting. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Standard malts and roasts aroma and flavor. Pretty watery, bland. Not great. My buddy Brian drinks this shit.

Dark brown pour with a slight tan head. Malty nose. Ok taste, malty and boozy.

kramer (5393) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a flat black body under a small fizzy brown head. The nose is roasty and burnt malt with minimal hoppiness. Itís pretty basic stuff, roasted malt, a bit watery, with a slight malt bitterness and a citrusy kick on the finish. Lighter bodied with low carbonation and a shortish finish. On the whole itís a little boring.

Can pour opaque black with thin tan head. Looks good but then falls apart from there. Nose burnt malt, tobacco, tar, some coffee. Taste some roast and chocolate, then some flavors similar to nose. Minimal roast on the finish. Thin mouth feel for an oatmeal stout.

From the can at Patomac Grill in Old Haperís Ferry. It looked really nice. Dark. Black. Nice head that almost overflowed the pint glass. But the aroma was weak and the flavor wasnít a whole lot better. I should have just looked at it all night.

Can. A brown beer, unclear, topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Sourish coffee grit aroma with butter-scotchy notes. Toffee and some charcoal. Itís medium to ful-bodied, soft and almost to low on carbonation. Sourish roasted malts, coffee and melange coffee flavor. Some roasted malts kind of bitterness. Lasting finish. Not very good this one. Smooth, yes, but the aroma and flavor isnít much interesting or good. 150622

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, caramel, floral and tartness. Taste is light to medium sweet, light to medium bitter and light sour with a long chocolate, sour and grainy finish. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Bottle to globe. Nose is mostly chocolate. Pour is black with light Browns, small head. Taste is bitter, dark cocoa and watery thin. Very lackluster in the flavor. Like watered down coffee with extra harshness. Ugh

Buckeyeboy provided the elusive WV tick! Thanks buddy! Standard black with good dark brown foamy head... no real lacing, looks a little thin on the pour. Dark malt with a little char in the nose, not enough sweetness to balance IMO. Flavor mirrors the aroma and could again use a little more malty sweetness to help tie things together... Lighter than expected body too unfortunately.. Still a decent beer, just could use a little dialing down.
