I've had this brew many times. Finally getting around to a review. Thanks to Dave for bringing a bottle over. The beer is dark amber with burgundy highlights. Aromas of toffee, brown sugar, yeast. Brown breads and malt with yeast and a touch of hops in the finish. Alcohol presence is moderate. Medium carbonation with a growing sweetness. This is alright.

Deep mahogany color and thick white head (from what I could see in the dimly lit bar). Malty smell with a touch of caramel and chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel giving way to the malts and caramel sweetness - quite nice. Of the small number of Three Floyds beers I've tried, this one is my favorite so far, though I think I would find myself reaching for an Alpha King more frequently.

Pours a dark reddish-brown with a thin white head. Smell is of caramel malt, it's nice, but a bit one-dimensional and not all that prominent. Flavor is malty and a little sweet with a slight roasty-bitter kick on the back end. Unfortunately it tastes way too boozy for a 6.5% beer. I shouldn't be able to taste alcohol at all, but I'm definitely getting a little bit here. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and smooth. Overall, this is a good, not great beer from 3 Floyds. On the spectrum of 3 Floyds beers, this is one of their weaker ones, but on the spectrum of beer in general, this one is certainly above average.
