Poured this from a 22oz bomber into a goblet glass. Pours an extremely dark brown, almost pitch black, with a 2-fingers worth of head. Eventually dissolves and leaves about a fingers worth.
On the nose, I'm getting dark chocolate right away. I'm also picking up some roasted malts. The hops come through on this stout. I like that. A little grapefruit in there.
The taste is a bittersweet chocolate. This is followed by a mellow coffee roastiness. A touch of grapefruit, just like the aroma. Finishes with a nice kick of hops. Just enough kick to let you know they are there. Not as "hidden" like in a sweeter stout but not "in-your-face" like an Imperial.
Medium-bodied. A little creamy but still drinkable. Had the whole bomber and it still left me wanting more!
Overall, a great brew from Three Floyds. I would highly recommend this to a Three Floyds fan. Actually, I would recommend this to a stout fan!

A: Appears to be very dark brown, if not black, in the glass, but holding it up to the light reveals it to be a bit thin and translucent. Forms a moderate sized deep tan colored head, but the beer offers little retention. Light lacing.
S: Aroma is mostly roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa with a mix of citrus and piney hops.
T: Taste starts of with mostly roasted malts and milk chocolate, then it thins out. Lighter notes of coffee and citrus hops. Maybe a slight hint of smoke.
M: Medium bodied. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness.
O: A decent stout. A bit hoppy for the style, but that is to be expected with FFF.
