3.13/5  rDev -26.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle shared with the brother and brother-in-law while enjoying the overall crapulence of another holiday together. Sharing beers is my attempted contribution to the general welfare.

Pours a surprisingly fizzy and vibrant headed dark cola.

Clashtastic nose of universes colliding.

Tastes is an up front and unabashed assault of acrid coffee, smoke, and roasty char. If the hoppiness had attempted to peek it's meager head, it was summarily punished by the brutish and bullying maltzilla.

Far too much carbonation provides a fizzy cola mouthfeel atop the generous body.

Naysayers may bang the Floyds-can-do-no-wrong-gong. This experiment should be put to pasture. There's simply too much going on here, with very little cohesion: like a round about navigated by crackheads. In theory this could/should have been good? I'm not even sure if that holds. As is, in this humble know-nothings opinion, this is one imperial hype train that should remain in the station.
