Review taken from notes mid May 2014. Bottle was given to me from my friend Matt who attended Dark Lord Day 2014 where he got it from. So it was very fresh.

1 pint, 6 oz brown bomber bottle in typical FFF style and shape. A ridiculously metal looking label with the head of a slain werewolf(swords still lodged into its skull). Then again, maybe this is how this beast looks when it kicks down a persons door to do its nightly business. Either way, its a pretty intense looking wolf. Poured into a nonic style pint glass.

A -Pour was of a golden orange with a ton of funk floating about. I'm talking big particles and that only means a grand stand of flavor and aromas. Big off white head settles fluffy and never goes away leaving phenomenal stick to the walls of my nonic glass.

S - big fruit forward aroma to start. Sweet tangerine and pineapple with hints of soft mango really grab the nose. Biscuity malt balance the aroma nicely giving off a sweet honey character toward the back end. A touch of alcohol spice is noticeable as this warms.

T - much the same as the nose. Big time tangerine, pineapple, sweet grapefruit, and a big splash of mango with apricot working in the backbone. The biscuity bread like malt does well balancing some pretty big sweetness going on. It's just a massive candied fruit bomb with the hops doing most of the work. Not bitter hops but luscious sweet fruity hops with a solid biscuit malt backbone. Some alcohol Booziness does creep up as it warms but only adds to its brilliance.

M - full bodied and thick as you'll find. This is straight up FFF at its best and adds yet another gem to its already stacked ipa/double ipa lineup. Coats the mouth almost shockingly well and leaves you thirsting that next sip of sweet goodies. Just a treat to drink.

O - Permanent Funeral is a grand offering from Three Floyds. It's definitely one worthy of grabbing a place in their year round or seasonal bottlings. Just when you think these guys can't add anymore brilliance in terms of a big ipa they slap everyone In the mouth and create an all out jewel of a brew like this. It's def my 2nd favorite brew from them behind only the infamous dreadnaught, but both offer different qualities and that's great to see. No doubt Permanent Funeral will go down as an all time great for years to come.
