Had this on nitro-tap on a recent visit to the brewery. Served in a pint glass.
Appears a very inviting black color with a quarter inch head. This beer looks declicious.
Smell is roasted malt and hops. I'm not a hop-head and prefer my stouts on the non-hoppy side, but the nitro tap takes care of most of this. This beer is so creamy and smooth, it's very, very good. Very good dark choco taste with a perfect amount of hops coming through in the taste. This is a very solid offering from FFF.
This is a great beer that I could drink for a very long time. The moderately low ABV makes this highly sessionable.
I'm slowly becoming a very big fan of Three Floyd's. Can't wait to try more of their stuff.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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
