9 oz draft pour. Little head retention and maintains light carbonation. Dark brown color with a light nose. Nothing really popping as spectacular except the overall balance. Lighter than most Belgians and yet carrying through the candied sugar, carmel, and soft yeast notes... A light dark ale.

Served in an 8 oz. tumbler, review from written notes.
Burnished amber brown, delicate tan lacing with a lasting skim on the surface. Body is dark with reddish traces around the edges.
Aromas of toasted grains and fruity dark cherry. Medicinal cherry taste. Dry lingering bitter/tannic aftertaste, sort of slick and a slow sipper. Medium sweetness at first, sticky on the lips, sweet cherry notes tend to dominate. Flavor is a bit dull and one note, yeast driven with little to balance. Creamy light body is nice. Not something i'd look for again though.

A- Pours a slightly hazy brown with a half finger head. No retention or lacing.
S- Caramel and toffee malt sweetness, with some brown sugar, raisins and sweet booze.
T- Again, lot's of sweetness with caramel and toffee notes, brown sugar, hint of dark fruit, peppery spice, honey and some booze.
M- Low carbonation and a syrupy body. Finishes dry with some heat.
O- Wasn't really impressed by this offering from Three Floyds. Really no complexity and it was pretty hot for being 9%.

Ontap at FFF.
Served in a baller plastic cup, then quietly poured into my own snifter that I brought with me.
The look on Steve's face was priceless.
The original nose reminded of Robert the Bruce... Some nice sweet malts hit in a big pleasant way... Then it began to warm and I get; a touch of acrid smoked malt, lots of dark fruit, some yeasty esters, and something the slightest bit tart.
The flavor includes everything I got in the nose; toffee and caramel malt notes, dark fruits like plums and raisins, some sour green apple note at the finish. In a big way, the finish makes me think of a taffy apple.
Body is a bit thin and overcarbed, but it is not entirely without charm.
The beer looks kinda purple and murky-- decent retention but limited lacing.
Overall, this was an interesting offering from th FFF crew-- not one I'll order again, but fun to try.

On tap at Three Floyds Brewpub, served in a 8 oz. plastic cup during the "Destruction" (expansion/remodel).
Pours a very dark amber with about a one finger head. Aroma of bready yeast, brown sugar, a bit of spice, and the gentlest touch of smoke. The taste of sweet malt, clove, and anise dominate with a touch of breadiness and caramel. As it warms spice and sweet become a bit more pronounced Lower carbonation, chewy, syrupy, and medium bodied with just a bit of warmth from the abundant alcohol. An enjoyable dark Belgian ale.
