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.

Can, thanks to Weihenweizen. Dark brown with faint reddish tint, large spongy beige head, roasted malt aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet mocha taste, medium thick body, longish dry finish. Not bad, a bit weak.

Opaque black color with some subtle red notes. Big frothy beige head. Looks nice. Moderate intensity in the aroma. But it had a nice hop profile. Medium body and an average carbonation. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Roasted, herbal hoppy and coffee. A nice meal for a miner.

Many thanks to Travlr for another state and another rate. Miner’s Daughter is one those state ratings that gives you the satisfaction of letting you think you’re truly drinking something that represents the region from which it came. Coal mines - doesn’t get much more West Virginian than that. The label art seems appropriately old-timey. Miner’s Daughter pours black as soot. Aroma is redolent of cream, oatmeal, and roasted malt. Flavor has bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and toasted sugar. There’s also a mineral characteristic I can’t quite place. (I joked with HuskerTan that it was fitting to have mineral elements in a beer inspired by miners.) Overall, smooth and very drinkable.

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr")
A- Roasty, subtle dry bitter cocoa, iron.
A- Black color, black liquid, beige head.
T- Subtle coffee, roasty, bitter cocoa, subtle sherry.
P- Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, dry finish.
O- This one had a bit of a sherry/dark fruit taste that was a nice addition. The aroma alone was kind of dull. Very creamy smooth body too. The oatmeal did wonders for it.

Bottle split @ BVery’s with the MN Crew. Scored somewhere in Charleston, WV. Deep brown pour with a small head. Sort of knackered, tired aroma. Some cardboard, soft coffee and a bit of chocolate. Hasn’t aged gracefully. Flavor is similar. Thin and a somewhat bitter. Stale coffee and water strained through spent charred grain. Little else. Lightish body, active carb.

Tap at the source. Poured a dark black with a watery look to it and small off white head. Aroma of wood, smoke. Flavor had wood notes, smokey, a little sweetness, and a dry stout taste. Light for a dark beer, and the texture was creamy, but on the thin side of things. Average carbonation and a dry, slightly bitter finish.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. This beer pours a brownish black color with a small off-white head. The aroma has a strong wood smell that I am not a fan of. The flavor is slightly bitter with a slight aftertaste. I am not a big fan of this.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
