COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coal Black and creamy smooth, this beer holds a light tan head and is surprisingly light in body - so it won’t fill you up. Thomas, WV’s heritage was based on the hard-working Italian coal miners who worked the mines from the 1890s-1940s. The tap handle is the silhouette of a local coal miner’s daughter.

sonnycheeba (6342) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Tap. Pours dark brown with thin, creamy beige head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, light earthy hops, light smoke, and faint vanilla. Flavor is roast and caramel malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and faint hops; creamy, dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.
