Pours black with ample tan head. Smells like pine hops and subdued coffee, sweet chocolate. Tastes of chocolate and coffee, hops, dry, high carbonation. Kind of like a porter IPA. Pretty good. I'd call this a good Cascade Dark Ale :) I'm diggin the hoppy aroma and the back flavors in this porter.

Deep chocolate pour, slight head diminishes quickly. Nose of chocolate and roasted coffee. Deep rich mouthfeel, Taste of that chocolate and roasted coffee. Easily enjoyable as well as easily drinkable, this brew I can recommend to everyone, introduce the world to the Three Floyds Brewery!
