This pours a deep black with a mocha looking head.

The aroma is mostly coffee, followed by piney, earthy hops.

Coffee is the first to hit the palate, then that fades to the hops and the aftertaste is mainly roasted malt. It is light bodied and has a clean, bitter aftertaste.

Only my second from Three Floyds, but it was great. Highly recommended to pick this one up.

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.
