Purchased at Whole Foods in Chicago area 22 oz bomber. Had a bad day and went to store to see if they had any Three Floyds. The day went from 70 degrees to 40 degrees in the matter of an hour or so that day. Bought the bottle thinking I would only drink a little bit before dinner. Opened the bottle started drinking it and finished it in 30 minutes. Dark coffee color, smells of coffee, oatmeal, toffee, and chocolate. Have to say that this is one of the best stouts I have ever had as I am a lover of coffee. Once finished I was nicely buzzed and didn't want dinner as I was quite full feeling I had a great full meal. One of the best I have had from them!

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!

Listed as 8% on 3F website. BIG difference, I'm surprised people didn't notice this.

Peat smoke comes across smoothly with sweet chocolate as the star.
