Growler from Hop City Birmingham enjoyed in Chattanooga. Black as oil with slick lacing. Aroma is dark malt and coffee. The flavor is almost burnt malt with lingering bitterness in the finish. Okay.

Very bitter. More like a black IPA. Coffee bitter. Hoppy. Ok. But nothing impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Good People. Black beer with a thin layer of tan foam. Big time bitter roasted malts and ash. Very ashy on the nose, in fact. Quite burnt. Coffee, coffee grounds, and some licorice. Definitely a lot of sugar character, too. Sort of a creme brle thing going on. The flavor is much sweeter than I would have expected from the aroma. Slight maple, perhaps...some dark cherries and licorice candies as well. Its alright.

My current favorite of the offerings I've tried from Good People. A colossal beer with nice coffee notes.
