COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

sonnycheeba (4138) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2012
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.

jbruner (2854) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle thanks to trade with weihenweizen! Pours a deep brownish black with thin tan cap that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is faint, slight earth and dark chocolate. Taste is a bit more full, earth, tobacco, dark roasty chocolate. Moderately thick and creamy mouth, lingering bitterness. Not bad but nothing great.

Bottle->snifter. Dark brown with small khaki head. Pretty one dimensional, with roasted malt and some chocolate notes. Nothing exciting, but very drinkable.
