Bottle from Total Wine McLean. Pours Black with a thin khaki head. leaves some lacing in the glass. I’m not getting much on the nose. Extremely dry on the tongue with some chocolate being revealed on the finish. Not my favorite interpretation of the style but not boring either.

Bottle sent to me by Prufrockstar - thanks Chris! Dark black pour with a nice dark tan head. Roasted malt nose. Strong bitter taste that finishes a little bitter. For some reason this was more pronounced when the beer was colder vs. when it warmed up (much better as it warmed!).

Boostle via Homer321. T. Hanks, broseph! Pours a thick as tar black, almost no head. Plenty of ass to mouth action, lots of creamy tar, ass drippings, very heavy on the roast. No alcohol detected. This is really my kind of beer. Thick, black, unforgiving yet smooth. I am willing and this black monster is more than ready!

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2013 On tap at St Augustine’s on The Drive in Vancouver. Almost black with moderate tan head. Rich chocolate and coffee overtones here. Somewhat sweet with a trace of sourness about mid palate, but with a dry, bitter and roasted finish. Superb!
