Served in DFH signature glass
A: Pours very dark brown with brown-amber highlights. A taupe head rises a couple inches, leaves a foamy ring, then falls. Subsequent sips leave rings, too.
S: Resin, tea-like and citrus hops mixed with coffee and some chocolate malts.
T: Sweet malts touch palate then above characteristics take over. The mixture of hop and roasted malts is quite striking, which makes sense since Three Floyds has already mined this flavor profile successfully with Alpha Klaus and Black Sun Stout. The label suggests honey, which was totally consumed by yeast and, as such, contributes nothing to taste, as well as smoke, which it almost imperceptible. Finish is bitter with powdered cocoa and citrus peels.
M: Medium-heavy body and medium carbonation. Something burns at palate, almost like pepper. Could that be the smoked malts?
O: Ragnarok rates about as well as Black Sun Stout, which is excellent. Easily drinkable, despite its relatively big abv.
