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

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

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.
