world class in my book! wish they had this for sale in bombers because i would've bought a case. this is by far the best stout i have had in a very long time.

A: black with a tan head that is there the entire time you drink it.

S: oatmeal, alcohol, vanilla, bourbon.

T: WOW. everything i said in the smell is in the taste, at least for me it is. outstanding!

M: full bodied, which is a must for me in a stout, i dont want my stout to be thin.

O: i wish i would've gotten more and i wish it were around 24/7/365

Appearance - Dark, dark, dark! Lives up to its name. 1 finger of head disappeared quickly. Nice lacing.

Smell - Sweet citrus hops! Some floral hints intertwined.

Taste - Fruit! Hints of grapefruit. A citrusy stout, so unique. Loving it. Chocolate/espresso notes come out in the aftertaste. The alcohol is blended so well, it's ridiculous. Light, pleasant alcohol vapor on the breath afterwards. Not hot whatsoever. Just right.

Mouthfeel - Thick, a little bit of chew to it. Finishes slightly dry & sticky on the lips.

Overall - Amazingly unique brew. Lives up to their slogan "It's not normal" and then some. I will be getting this every time I come down to the brewpub. If they ever bottle it, I will be getting it then too. 10.4% ABV?! Haha. It goes down so smooth, it's not even funny. The most dangerously drinkable beer I've tried to date. Awesome.

served into a tulip at the pub on 1-18-2013

I am not normaly a dark beer drinker, but i was told that this brew i could not pass up.

Pours dark as night with a chocalate colorded head about a hlaf inch high.

Smells of coffee, toffe and chocalate with a nice almost citrus like aroma.

I was taken away by the taste of this brew. Righ in front you get hit by the hops in this one. Almost a citrus/cascade dry hop. Very full body, lots of booze. Again hints of choclate, toffe, and pine.

From three floyds, i was expecting a rather bitter finish, but is was quite subtle. Went down with out a backlash of bitterness.

overall i wish this was a beer that they continue to make and hopefully one day bottle.

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!
