look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours about as black as it gets with a large brown head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing and such much after the pour.

S - Damn you 3F, adding hops to everything. A nose of hops and plenty of roastiness to keep your nose guessing.

T - Not nearly as much hops as the nose lent you to guess. Lots more roasted coffee notes however, with that slightly sour finish you'll get in Irish Stouts.

M - Creamy, creamy and creamy. A very smooth beer to say the least. This is one of those beers, regardless of taste, many could go down just from the feel of this beer.

D - Very high, a beer this smooth, an with an ABV that isn't too deep at all, I wouldn't mind taking a few of these down. A very nice release from 3F that I would like to see as a regular brew.

Serving type: nitro-tap

3.65/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: bottle
