I had this on-tap at Three Floyds on Christmas Eve.
Served in a snifter.
A: Despite the extreme noirness pertaining to the color (or lack thereof) of the brew, this had a rather MASSIVE mocha head. Totally not used to that in Imperial Stouts. Looked dangerous.
S: Hoppy and fruity as hell! Was this supposed to be an Imperial Black IPA? Pineapple, grapefruit, mangos, and others from the tropics all wrapped up in a roasted, dark raw cacao, blanket.
T: Seriously, I can't believe I tasted pineapple first in an Imperial Stout. That's most definitely a first! Sure, it also had a roasty, chocolatey, malt bill as well, but the pine and grapefruit could not be ignored. Was this supposed to be an Imperial version of "Black Sun?"
M: Char bitterness on the end to let us know that this was supposed to be a stout, fruity, organic sweetness, low carbonation, and with ridiculous lacing.
O: I will NEVER forget that I tried this beer for as long as I live. Did I mention that it was also awesomely delicious?
Serving type: on-tap
