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.

Enjoyed on tap FFF. Served in a 10 oz. goblet.

A: Pours an obsidian black color with a fluffy tan head forming on the pour. Recedes to a thin ring and leaves little splotches of lace.

S: Citrus hoppiness with some noticeable booze and some chocolate. Light roast as well.

T: Roasty malts with some sweet booze. Milk chocolate with a minimal citrus hop backing. Some black licorice as well.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with a little chew to it. Smooth, roasty and sweet finish.

O: A very nice and big stout. Boozy, tons of chocolate and roast. One of the better stouts from FFF.

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!
