3.58/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours slightly hazy and with a dark amber color that is capped with a thick finger of dense off-white foam. Webby lacing left on the glass.

S - Lightly sweet, heavily featuring caramel malt, maltose, lightly earthy hop presence, a touch of grassy hops.

T - Similar to the aroma, heavy caramel malt presence, fairly sweet malt base, lightly buttery, toffee-ish. Hop bitterness is on the low side of intensity, just giving enough bitterness to keep the sweet malts from taking over completely. Hops are a bit dull in flavor, earthy and grassy but again at a fairly low intensity.

M - Medium body, but the malty sweetness makes it feel heavier. Carbonation is mid-level and tingly...nice but nothing special.

O - Seems to me to be like Dreadnaught's little brother. Same flavor character that I get from Dreadnaught but at a much lower intensity/higher quaffability factor. Certainly not the superstar pale ale that Zombie Dust is...overall, an adequate if not memorable brew from Three Floyds. Glad to try it, but probably won't make a return visit to this one.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Cloudy dark side honeyed pour. One and a half inch white head with staggered lacing.

I smell nothing but wet glass.

Unpleasant metallic bitter hop leaf and that doesn't even last long. Malt is there in simple form.

Carbonation is playful and lighter bodied.

Whaaa Whaaa?!? Got this "fresh?" off the shelf last week. As I'm reviewing this I can't help but to think FFF is better than this. Sorry boys but this is a stinker, juz saying. Bad bottle-maybe. Man-o-yawn.
