On a business trip to Chicago, so I had to stop by for dinner. Had this on tap (barrel aged). What a fine porter. Deep dark with a thin tan head. Smooth smoky chocolate flavor that rolls down the palet. Wish they had to take home! Wonderfull porter!!

Santa would be a very jolly fellow after a pint of this! Wow! Draft in a small snifter from Fiddlers, our local Irish pub. Lots of rich chocolate and tar on the nose and the palate. The hops come through on the finish. I think this would be very good warm.

Poured from a 22oz bomber. Aroma is roasty chocolate and citrus. Flavors are chocolate, roasty malt, citrus, and slight pine. Very solid drinkable porter! So much better fresh!! 3 Floyd’s FTW!

On tap at Three Floyds. Black with thin brown head. Aroma is roasty with C-hops. Taste is creamy and roasty with chocolate and sharp C-hops. Bitter finish. I’d call this more of a Black IPA. Delicious.

Bottle from Rebekah as part of an awesome FFF box. Thanks again! Pours nearly black with a super creamy two finger mocha colored head. Big hop aroma that I wasn't expecting. Pine galore, some lemon, some roast, chocolate, and big sweet sugar. Big chocolate and hop mixture in flavor. Lots of bitterness and pine, some sweet chocolate, then a bit of buttering roasted malts. Medium bodied, pretty smooth, with medium plus carbonation. Very drinkable. Dry finish. I was not expecting this at all, and for some reason was thinking this would be a big sweet chocolate dessert. I like it though, and it is a big hoppy porter bordering on black IPA. Glad I finally got my hands on this one.

Pours inky black with a thin tan head. Woody, hoppy aroma. Taste is very complex, chocolate, wood, oranges. Finish is bitter with orange and cocoa.

Bottle from RobertDale. Thanks Bob!! Aroma has notes of chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, piney and citrus hops. Black in the glass with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left great lace. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter. Palate is full bodied and watery with an average carbonation. Overall a really nice brew that’s quite drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, black pour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and coffee with subtle cocoa notes and lots of hops. Flavor is a bit of a mess, the roasted character of this beer doesn’t mingle very well with the hop bill. It’s like this beer can’t decide what it wants to be. Drinkable but I wouldn’t go back for seconds.
