A: Black. One finger of think tan foam. Red-orange edges show after head dissipates.

S: High quality dark chocolate and a hint of coffee and a very faint floral hop aroma

T: More chocolate. Absolutely delicious!

M: Velvety smooth. Carbonation stays out of the way but is present enough not to leave the beer flat

O: This is a fantastic stout. Wish I could get more of it.

Had at the brewpub in tap 1/11/13
Served in a pint glass

I'll be honest, this was probably my fourth or fifth beer of the night, but it was tasty! Got chocolate and maybe a hint of coffee in the taste and smell. This is by far the best stout I've had from 3 Floyd's. Next time I'll try and be a bit more sober for a proper review, but this was a awesome brew. If your at the brewpub get a pint and enjoy it!

A - Dark/Black pour as to be expected with a 1.5" cappuccino head. Lacing all the way down the glass as I drink it.

S - Roasted malt, dark chocolate, burnt sugars, light alcohol.

T - Right on with the nose. Rich roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate balanced by the perfect level of sweetness. Low level of hops presence that helps in balancing the sweetness and giving it a great lingering affect on the palate. The slightest taste of root beer like flavors in the finish. Amazing!

M - Medium to full viscosity on the beer but the perfect carbonation gives this beer a rich and creamy mouthfeel on the tongue.

O - This beer did not disappoint. From appearance to finish it was an amazing example of the style. Mouthfeel just kept getting better as I drank this and the alcohol level was just enough to warm my stomach by the end of the glass but not enough that it interfered with the flavors.

Three Floyd's is right where they should be on this one - nailed it!

Has a light coffee nose sweetened with dark sugars and seasoned with a hint of cinnamon and a whiff of chocolate.
It pours dark brilliant brown with a fluffy 1” tan cap.
The attack begins with chocolate, coffee, and big spicy grain flavors. Although malt driven, very well rounded.
A creamy, silky smooth chewy body has a touch of slickness and oiliness.
