@ waterfire after salsa dancing. in the street downtown providence. Really thick and hoppy. flecks of hops on the bottom of the cup. better than the rating lets on. I’ll be getting a growler of this when chip is in town.

beerbill (3503) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2011
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived at the table black with a thin-moderate light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of chocolate and roast malt. The flavor is chocolate, light coffee, mild nuts and some roasted malt. Lightly sweet. Medium-full bodied. Enjoyable.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of ash. In mouth, a smooth sweet fruity chocolate with light coffee notes, not bad. On tap at Boston Beer Summit, Jan. 15 2011.

Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Poured very dark brown/ruby in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, beige/brown head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of roasted malt, sugar, slight vanilla, slight chocolate, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Slightly thin texture. Soft carbonation. Roasted malt, light vanilla, and sugar finish.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2010
Woody plum and raisin aromas. Sweet fruity flavours in this syrupy black brew. Pruney a bit weird to be honest.

Part of a sampler at brewpub. Rating this from memory because it has been awhile since I was there but tried several of the Trinity offerings over the course of a couple of visits where I ordered sampler flights each time. Overall impression was that they made a decent brew in each of the styles they offeredbut nothing overly spectacular in any of them.

nickd717 (3562) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 14, 2009
First beer from RI, sampled at GABF 2009. Black in color with a small tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is roast, coffee, chocolate, and anise. Flavor is strong on the licorice, along with coffee, roasted and caramel malt, hints of dark fruit, chocolate, and alcohol. Palate a medium-full with a bitter finish and some booze. This is decent but not a great example of what is probably my favorite style.
