look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Black opaque, with a short tan head, with tight bubbles. Significant lacing, persistent.

S - Chocolate and a strong smell of alcohol, which given the ABV is quite surprising. A twang of roast malts.

T - An explosive rush of roasted coffee and chocolate, backed with a strong hit of hops, mostly medicinal in nature, trailing out to a black coffee bitterness that fades out slowly.

M - Slick with oats, surprisingly full given the moderate ABV. The bite of bitterness lingers, but there is not a strong build over time.

O - Very strong effort by Three Floyds, this beer is the rare 6% stout that drinks like a beer with almost twice the alcohol. It is a big, burly beast, and delivers huge stout flavor.

A - Pours pitch black with mocha lacing. Head dissipates quickly and leaves a thin cap around the glass.

T - Chocolate, caramel, vanilla. Creamy mouth feel, semi dry and bitter finish.

O - Really solid stout from FFF.

Big flavor for an oatmeal stout, plenty of coffee, molasses, and earthy, herbal hops. Moderate stickiness suits a smooth mouthfeel with medium body. Alcohol is warm and invigorating, much more so than I would expect from 6% ABV.
