Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this
Appearance: Deep, dark brown with some lighter brown around the edges - pours with a medium brown head, leaves some nice streaks of lacing
Smell: Dark, cooked, roasty malts and some hops - not the freshest bottle of this, but there are definitely some hops here, leafy and kind of herbal - some dark chocolate, baker's chocolate, semisweet chocolate - some roast and lightly burnt malts - some sweetness and what smells like some spices
Taste: Dark chocolate and some general spiciness - dark chocolate, chocolate malts, some baker's chocolate - some roasty, burnt bitterness, as well as some leafy, herbal, piney bitterness from the hops - some hints of dark fruits and some caramelized sweetness, but finishes dry
Mouthfeel: Medium, nicely carbonated, smooth, finishes very dry with some cinnamon-like spice
Overall: Maybe a beta klaus
This is definitely a nice porter, but the combination of roast and hoppiness could be a little better. Definitely good, but not the best from Three Floyds (which isn't much of a criticism).
