On-tap at Three Floyds, served in a tulip:
A - Cocoa colored 1" head with good retention, lacing was meadium to heavy. A nice cap and collar . The Color is very dark with maybe a hint of raspberry at the sides. Obvious by the name of the beer, light does not pass through this one.
S - Moderate hops, chocolate and a bit ofcaramel. There is no obvious alcohol on the nose. it is an interesting blend of the hops and chocolate.
T - Tastes just like it smells, maybe a bit more of the citrus character of the hops comes through. I get no sense of the alchol but there is a trace of smokiness on the finish that I really enjoyed.
M - Carbonation was moderate, a nice thick brew.
O - Really enjoyable, I could see having one of these while sitting by a fire. This is one that is on the edge of being a sipper. If they bottle this, I'll rack a few. If not, I will get it again next time I go to the Brewpub.

Reviewing the Blot Out The Sun Stout from Three Floyds Brewing Company out of Munster, Indiana. My presumption is that this is a barrel treatment of their Irish Dry Stout, Black Sun. This beer is aptly named after the infamous Simpsons story arc "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"
Tap pour served in a 10 oz glass at the Three Floyds Brewery and enjoyed on 12/28/12. Review is from iPhone notes.
Appearance: Deep brown color. Served with thin layer of khaki tan head that settles to a ring around the glass. Average lacing, above average retention. 3.5/5
Smell: Smells like a brown sugar infused IPA. Piney hops, brown sugar, and non-descript tropical citrus. There is a faint hint of bourbon, but not much barrel characteristic present at all. 4/5
Taste: Are we sure this is a stout and not a black IPA? malty brown sugar and grassy, tropical citrus hops. Very hoppy. Hint of cocoa. No booziness. Mildly sweet. Virtually no barrel characteristic present. 4/5
Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied, low carbonation. Sticky, malty and hoppy. 3.5/5
Overall: Outside of their variants for Moloko and Dark Lord, I have been very disappointed by Three Floyds' barrel program.
Recommendation: Worth drinking, but not worth going out of your way to try. This beer is overpriced for what it is, and for what you can get (even at a bar, even in Chicago) for $8, in my opinion.
Cost: $8 for a 10 oz glass.
