chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Almost a black pour, it is covered by a fading tan head. Mostly roast focused nose where biscuity, but burnt dark malts lean more towards chocolate than coffee. Nutty and leafy/earthy on the palate. The oatmeal contributes a certain roundness on this semi-thick ale with moderate carbonation. A competent dark ale, but more like a stout than a porter. Lacks a little maltiness. Finishes clean.

From mix 6 pack bought at Village Market (Harris Teeters yuppie division), Johns Island, South Carolina, tasted on July 22, 2016. Very dark brown/coffee color, nice roasted malt aroma with some chocolate, slick texture, toasted malt/chocolate/oat flavor significantly compromised by chemical taste and astringency.

JStax (5751) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The aroma has strong molasses and licorice notes. Leathery and herbal. This beer actually comes across a lot like a black ipa. Medium body and high carbonation.

hman43 (1294) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2016
It pours dark brown with a brown head. There are moderate fruit aroma with Roast, chocolate, and some nut. There are flavors of roast and citrus with chocolate, oats, and nut. It has a moderate feel that is on the heavy side with a moderately high bitter finish. It has a fairly high level of carbonation. Overall it is a malt forward ale with a pleasant balance of citrus hops.
