A Dark brown with hints of amber. Small head dissipates quickly.

S Malt, candied fruit and a touch of booze. A nice smelling beer. Very inviting.

T Toasty malt, caramel with a small hop note at the end. Tasty and easy to drink. Delicious beer.

M Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A dry finish.

O Love this beer. Have a nice selection of 12 oz bottles in the fridge and this is old faithful. Delicious, refreshing and goes down oh so easily. Well done Three Floyds!

Out of a bottle during a recent swing through Chicago...

A - Two fingers worth of whipped slightly fluffy medium khaki colored head... The color is slightly glowing ruby tinged medium brown... A moderate bit of slow to moderate paced carbonation much of which clings to the sides of the glass...

S - Loaded with caramel sweetness... Toffee... A huge whiff of dark fruits... Figs... Dates... Raisins... Brown sugar... Some very subtle smoky character... A very light earthy hop scent... Very nice aroma...

T - Loaded with malty goodness... Caramel... Toffee... Lots of dark fruit notes... Fig... Raisins... Perhaps even some cranberries... The finish also had some slight medicinal notes...

M - Medium to full bodied... Light but assertive carbonation... Quite fizzy... A bit sticky... Not as smooth as I typically would hope for in the style...

D - I had wanted to try this one for quite a while and am very happy to have had the opportunity... Unfortunately this one was a bit of a let down and my least favorite of the FFF that I have tried (though still quite good)... This one was a bit rough around the edges...
