3.53/5 rDev -5.6%
Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, caramel, bready malt, liquorice and cocoa.
Flavours include bitter one-dimensional roast, booze, a prominent milk chocolate note and bready malt.
Nice creamy carbonation.
A bit more complexity would be nice for a beer of this strength.

I have passed this one up so many times I thought what the hell and bought it.Pours black as my kids moms soul.I dont smell much...maybe some plum and cocoa.First sip is a bit boozy but gives way to the cocoa and othe signiture stout flavors.It seems to have that pop rocks dissolve on the tongue effect that I tend to like.For 7 bucks it aint bad and I would definatly revisit this one if I could not find a Ten Fidy or a Stone in stock...not bad at all.

Pours the darkest brown hue with a creamy two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is molasses,plums and dark mocha,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and has tastes of dark coffee,chocolate,molasses and finished bittersweetness and overall it's quite nice without being over the top cheers.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet cocoa, char, and dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell and tasty flavors that make this one easy to drink.

O: very good beer overall - first eel river i have ever tried and i look forward to trying more of their beers...

A: pours chocolate brown. Mostly opaque. Head is cappuccino colored.
S: smells a little like licorice.
T: fantastic taste. Hint of black licorice. Extremely smooth. Reminds me of little chocolate licorice bars. Can't remember what they were called...
M: great feel that you want to let sit in your mouth.
O: I enjoyed this beer a lot. Eel river is a brewery I've only recently learned about and everything they do seems to be really good. I love black licorice, so that is part of it. I want to go get another!
