3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from my main man StFun. Pours black with a thin tan head. The nose is roast, citrus and chocolate. The taste is burnt malt, loads of hops, ashy cocoa and bitter resin in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Comes off more like a black IPA. Good stuff – thanks again Josh!

01.24.2015 Bottle courtesy of James w/ him and Andy. Aroma is nice, chocolate, little bready malt. Dark pour, light tan head, medium mouthfeel with kind of a sticky character. Flavors are some chocolate or vanilla bean with a bit of dairy. Much more robust than expected. Cool label.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Zwanze Day 2014. Pour is deep brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Bready, light honey, come cocoa, graham crackers, and slightly hoppy aroma. Taste is somewhat bland - some roast, a touch of coffee, some bread and twangy. Thin body with medium carbonation. This one has definitely not aged gracefully. Would have loved to try it fresh.

FFF bending the porter concept a little bit over here. Hoppy aroma. Soft mouthfeel but with a long bitter finish. Black DIPA? Very good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
6/30/2011: Three Floyds Amon Amarth Ragnarok... Aroma: Wow, totally unexpected aroma of HOPS - must totally be dry hopped to hell and back - supper fresh and leafy HOPS! More roasted coffee beans seems to emerge as the beer warms. Appearance: Opaque, dark brown color with reddish highlights; static head of really fin beige-colored bubbles; fine lacing effects. Flavor: Intense chocolate and leafy hops (citrusy) followed by a more subdued dry roasted maltiness; the hoppiness smoothes out a bit with each sip, although it still dominates with the dry, roasty, mocha-like maltiness being pretty far back in the background. Palate: Medium-bodied, but seems to drink more full; smooth going down with a calm, almost silky mouthfeel. Overall: Typically I don’t care for high-hopped of overly dry-hopped porters and stouts, but this one is growing on me for some reason...
