Strykzone (6273) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Black. An ashy kind of smoky nose. Chocolate plus what I smelled are tasted. Some zingy hops bring a bit of bitterness. Fruit. Decent balance here.

Homer321 (3959) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle thanks to Gription79. Poured to glass. Nose is moderate tobacco with some ashiness. Definitely more on the earthy dirty side than chocolate. Pour us lack with a huge, light brown head. Taste is initially acidic with a dried tobacco note. Lightly smokey as well. Some creaminess in the finish. Overall a decent offering but the lack of anything that’s not lighter than burnt coffee beans kind of turns me off a little.

Bottle during RBWG hotel lobby tasting night 1, 19/02/15 thanks to Craig? Light black with a decent tan covering. Nose is earthy roast, spice, charr, chocolate, toffee. Taste comprises dark chocolate, toffee fudge, pinch of spice, tar. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok impy, easy drinker but lacks depth.

Bottle thanks to Secret Santa! Pours black wit ha gray head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has lots of dark grains and roasted malts with a bit of bitter chocolate and a hint of licorice. Flavor has a bit more sweet dark grain but still full of roasted malts with some bitter chocolate and a touch of licorice.
