On Tap @ FFF brewpub.
Serving Type: 10oz goblet

A: Black, near opaque color with minimal head. Nice alcohol legs and some slight lacing

S: Hops, nice citrus hops. A bit of booze, some good caramel & toffee roast notes. A great smelling hoppy stout.

T: This one is mostly malts, nice roasted malts. Chocolate, toffee, slightly sweet. Barely any hops as I was expecting from the nose on this one. Very slight on the booze notes, dangerously drinkable

M: Medium mouthfeel. Coats the mouth nicely with roasted malts with a hint of booze.

O: A great stout. Deceptively drinkable, i could drink this all day, then be plastered. The nose is wonderful but the taste doesn't follow the nose, which is good IMO. One of the best beers I've tasted from FFF this year.

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?

Cat pee and coffee: a winning combination.

Looks--there's two kids next to me right now talking about how the fact that all your feelings come from nerves are proof that god is a materiality. There's progressive metal blasting. The guy who poured me this beer has a goatee tattooed onto his face.

The Floyds is weird. You think you're gonna show up during off hours and just sneak a quick one for the road and it turns into a big drunk ordeal.

But right now, this--this has the distinct taste of cat pee. It's a particular form of high-acide hoppiness I've noted before but never has it been more prominent. And never, shamefully, has it been so tasty.

The stout nodes a bit tart but the cat pee sees them through. The body is a little thin but the cat pee sees it through.

I need to be arrested.

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.
