Served in a shaker pint glass.

Gotta give some props to my man Alex for grabbing a bottle o' this whilst swinging through Munster on a trip and sharing it here with us. This stuff pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger of leather-tan foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild molasses, light graham cracker, cocoa, and a hint of leafy greens. The taste brings in more of the same, everything going according to plan until a wave of milk-chocolatey sweetness bubbles through the center, washing over all through the finish. A nice surprise, really. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a relatively full feel. Overall, a damn solid stout, probably the best Three Floyds offering I've had in a while.

Nothing special, best quality was the thickness from the oatmeal

From a bottle, pours black as night with a fluffy tan head.

Smell is lots of roast, oats, caramel, malt, a little sweet molasses, some piney hops. The taste up front is bitter dark chocolate, a little vanilla, caramel, more dry oats. Lots of lactose, that makes me think this taste like chocolate milk with a little spice on the finish.

Interesting to try.
