I'm happy to say that this beer is super well done. A lot of times I feel like good ideas go into combinations/collaborations like this but what comes out is not dependable. Leave it to FFF to get shit done.

Pours a super dark burned caramel. You can tell as you're pouring that its of thin consistency though. Light colored 3 finger head which fades quick. Super nice lacing. Has the nose that is typical of FFF, super fresh with a great hop aroma. Not quite as fruity smelling as their other IPAs but definitely has a darker roasted character.

As I drink the lacing is just gorgeous. First impression is that of smoothness with a lot of great hop flavor without much of the bitter crunch. (Possibly due to me holding on to it in the fridge for almost a month) Sits heavy on the tongue as the taste continues and the roasted caramels really come out. There are even some coffee notes. Overall though, still tastes pretty much like you'd expect an IPA to taste like - just with a dark twist that makes it super interesting, yet still very satisfying.

Damn tasty black IPA that easily tops some of the more highly rated 3 Floyds offerings. Somewhat mellow taste for it's ABV, a nice dark color and mild aroma. Good finish that leaves a slightly hop forward taste in your mouth. A nice choice for someone looking for a cross between a stout and an IPA.

Was very excited about trying this one being a fan of Eyehategod! This brew here is an easy drinker. Like most black IPA's, it's not very heavy at all. Very smooth. If I had to compare it to another Three Floyd's beer, it would be the Toxic Revolution. After pouring, I saw that it was dark brown in color with a burnt brown, thin head. Tasted kind of woody to me, kind of like a light porter or something...

This beer really surprised me. Malty, very smooth, very similar to Topless Wytch. Very, very drinkable. Honestly, I could have drink the entire 22 oz'er in 20 seconds! The sad part about a beer like this is that everyone will not be able to try it. The beer gods of Munster have struck again and it is good!!!
