Enjoyed at the brewpub.

Pours damn near black with a fingers worth of tan head. Lots of legs.

The nose is very hoppy and has some malt and cocoa nibs as a backbone. Some caramel and coffee notes also linger after the hop takeover.

The flavor is very well integrated with hops up front and sweet malt finishing the flavor. Some citrus and pineapple fruit notes are sharp upfront. There is chocolate, roasted malt and coffee at the finish.

The mouthfeel is heavy with light carbonation. Smooth and silky.

Overall, I loved this because of the great balance of hops and stout characteristics.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.
