From the look and smell, which were excellent, I expected a stronger fuller flavor from this. It was a good beer but I didn't get the thickness or body I expected from an oatmeal stout, especially one from FFF.

It is creamy, a different stout, a little stout notes of chocolate, and roasted malt, but creamy and smooth. I like this one very much

Dark, black stout, nice 2 fingers of head. Pouring it light comes through the liquid pretty well. Overall a medium to light color for an imperial but at 5.9% we'll call it medium.

Coffee, tofee, vanilla, citrus hop notes, and a bit of light chocolate. There might even be a hint of mint.

Served at about 55 degrees perhaps too warm but I can't get past the citrus hop finish. Yes there's some chocolate, and roasted malt. I can see some mint at the finish. But I really am mostly tasting the bitter citrus which hits about a half second after the beer hits the tongue and lasts till the end. Oats? Nope. Milk? Maybe some lactose but I suspect it's from something else.

Somewhat dry and a bit acidic. This one goes down pretty easy.

This is one of the many times I really wish BA still let you rank based on the serving type. Are more people having this one on tap or bottle? Is it better in one form or the other?

Anyway this isn't a bad beer. Very unique and it fits with three floyds style of making unique beers. I'm not a fan, but glad to have tried it.

taste of grapes in this stout - maybe it was a bad bottle?

To me it's a pretty strange oatmeal stout. Weird fruit notes that I really enjoy, just can't pin them down. Unlike anything I've had from 3Fs.
