3.96/5 rDev -4.3%
22 Ounce brown bottle poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Dark/Black in appearance with a few fingers of light brown or tan head.
Smell: Well there is a roasted scent but there was an unexpected earthy almost hoppy/piney smell as well. There was a little bit of sweetness but not much.
Taste: Well it seems like there are a lot of things going on in this. There is a slight fruity taste at first that goes into a hoppy bitterness that then goes into a sweet maltiness that finishes off with the roasted coffee type bitterness. The hoppy bitterness does remain afterwards too.

22oz bottle from zrab11 (thank you!). 2012 release. Served in a Terrapin snifter.
Pours dark brown with about one finger of clumpy tan head. Small patches of lace.
Smells of cocoa, roasty malts and a little bit of piney hops.
Taste is a blend of dark malts, cocoa, bark and earth with a kick of hop bitterness in the finish.
Creamy medium light body with plenty of loose fizzy carbonation. Bitter roasty aftertaste.
A solid hopped-up porter that reminds a little bit of Cigar City Jose Marti. It borders American black ale territory but that roastyness dominates first and foremost. Not the strongest entry I've had from Three Floyds but worth a go if you have the chance.
