On tap at Fiddler's Hearth in South Bend. Served in a nonic pint.
Pour: Nearly pitch black body, with a thick, two fingers deep khaki head. Head sticks around for most of the glass, and leaves really nice lacing the entire way.
Smell: Roasted malts up front, with some tobacco. A floral hoppiness comes in and completely hijacks the whole affair. Finish is a mix of hops and roasted coffee.
Taste: Roasted malts hit first again, but then dance with a bitter hop floral and grassy flavors. Some light dark chocolate bitterness. Finishes roasty and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Quite light and drinkable. Amongst the best drinking porters I've ever had to be honest.
Overall: This beer blurs the line between a black IPA and a porter. I actually really enjoy it, and the hoppyness is exactly what I should have expected from Three Floyds.
Serving type: on-tap
