3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours cloudy and dark brown with burnt-orange highlights and a small, creamy, beige head. Smells sweet, not crazy roasty, moreso notes of caramel and marshmallow. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and roasty. Smooth. Doesn’t really trend sweet or bitter. Just right. Enjoyable, but thin in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a dark black with a thick dark chocolate colored head. A sugary chocolate aroma with a taste that follows. A nice mouthfeel that’s smooth and full. A slight hopped tingle on the tongue. A small bitter feel lingers on. Decent but a little off for me.

Jet Black color not light coming through. Aroma is of chocolate and a dark sweetness and some dark fruit. Taste is dark and sweet chocolate with some licorice. Another example of magic in a bottle from Three Floyds. Amazing stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick chugging black pour into a tulip glass with a nice big foamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and some oak. Taste is malty sweetness upfront with a little punch of bitterness and the coffee/dark chocolate lasting on the tounge. Mouth feel is a very nice thickness.

Decent. Smells great, vanilla. Sweet but not too much. Thin feel. Good but not one of my 3F favorites.

Bomber. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate notes, a little grain, some breadiness, and some light hops. Tastes produces a similar mixture with roasted malts and very slight hops.
