My last review was deemed more of a rant than a review
(I don't know. I realize this might be sacrilege but this beer was gross. I had it on tap at the brewpub on the wednesday after darklord day and I have to say that I did not enjoy it. This was like fermented prune juice or something...I love stouts, porters and dark beer but this was without a doubt the most disappointing beer I have ever drank. Don't go out of your way for this.)
So I'll try to play be the rules this time:
Appearance: Solid Black and thick as hell (great looking stout)
Smell: Mixture of spoiled prune juice and nail polish remover
Taste: Something is wrong with this. Funky, spoiled and possibly poisonous are my best adjectives for this.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied stout
Drinkability: I finished it only out of obligation.
Let me add to my original review that I LOVE almost every FFF beer that I've tried and think their brewpub is one of the greatest in the midwest. Unfortunately, this beer is not my cup of tea.
Serving type: on-tap

'12 bottle received via trade. When I first heard of this beer it was in the top 3 of BA, so it's been a long time want of mine. I was warned it was sweet and sweet it is. I assume if I had had this before Black Tuesday I would appreciate the sweetness a bit more. But a beer of this size needs barrel aging to curb the overbearing depth of malt. My bottle was slightly oxidized so I docked it more based on that. I'll see if the demand of a BA DL dies down and try my luck then.
