Served at the brewpub 1/11/13
Poured in a snifter.
I was expecting a more if a barrel aged taste, and smell off of this. At first I was a bit disappointed, but after the first big sip I enjoyed the hell out of it!
Citrus taste in a stout!!! So weird, but so damn good! It's a beer that almost needs to be drank to fully appreciate the nature if this beast. It's like a IPA and a stout hybrid. Grapefruit, pineapple, all sorts of citrus with some chocolate! So wonderful and complex!

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.
