fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
This batch was bottled on 12/21/2010. Aroma:The aroma is of sweet dark malt, with slightly burnt roasty overtones. There is also chocolate and dark fruits present. Appearance:The color of the beer is black and opaque. The deep mocha colored head is thick, rich, lustrous, and long-lasting. Taste:Tons of roast malt, dark chocolate, licorice, and coffee flavors are present in the foretaste. The strong bitter hops come out more in the midtaste. The aftertaste is mostly faded coffee and roast malt. Palate:The body on this one is lighter than I expected, and the carbonation was good. This beer has a nice creamy feel. The aftertaste has a little hop astringency. Overall:I enjoyed this beer a lot, its a great roast-driven RIS with a lot of complexity.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle... Tar black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The rich, roasted bouquet is a mlange of molasses, licorice, sassafras and cola. Full-bodied with a silky, buttery mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The flavor is a deeply roasted, fairly bitter blend of licorice, blackstrap molasses and charcoal. Lengthy, bitter, blackstrap finish. Bottle courtesy of dosbeerigos!
