COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry and surprisingly light-bodied. Malty sweetness and caramel flavors shift to distinctive dry-roasted malt notes.

Bomber. Jet black with a thick, creamy brown head. Nose has the typical 3F hops, plus a deep, roasty malt and coffee aroma. Some chocolatey notes as it warms. Body is really interesting - light, but full. I donít even know if that makes sense, but it fits. Flavors of sweet malt, caramel/toffee and coffee prevade, with some cocoa and burnt flavors underneath. Finish is dry and bitter. Really complex, really pleasant!

Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Black body, light brown head, some laces; IPA like nose (if I was blind I would guess this to be an IIPA). Pine, sweet flowers, far behind it soft coffee, soft chocolate and soft licorice; Very soft velvet like body with balance and a little bitterness; Into medium long bitter, dry, flowery, hoppy finish with complexity, depth and everything, the only thing it lacks is a bit of balance within each elements and between nose, body and finish.

Bottle poured black with a nice brown head and lacing. Aroma and flavor of rich, roasty malts, chocolate and coffee. Body is thick with a creamy texture and deep roasty finish. I wish I could get more of this!

22 oz from Ty5592...An amazing beer. Donít think it gets the credit it is due to the low abv...Eventhough it is not a "big" beer, it is excellent. Pours like black tar, nice dark brown head, tastes of melted chocalte, with a roasted coffee finish. Drank this with a couple friends who were strategizing about how we could locate more...In another state...Thanks Ty.

Rich aroma of cocoa, fudge, walnut, and maple syrup. Black pour with a medium brown head. Harmonious taste of chocolate and licorice. The licorice lingers on the palate with a subtle introduction of smoke. Medium body, yet sufficiently flavorful. Not very hoppy. This a special brew!

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 This beer is unlike any "stout" I have had. It has a lower ABV, which is good in this case. This is a very drinkable beer. It is thin on the palate and is certainly the most "hoppy" stout I have had. It has an aroma of coffee, honey, and syrup. It has a dry almost smokey finish. I think a lot of people tend to rate this beer low (than other 3Fs anyway) because of the ABV and thinness, however that makes it great. I could drink this all day long over other beers with higher ABV. This is probably my favorite Three Floydís beer so far and the bottle is cool as hell.

Bottle, courtesy someone. Black pour, big dark tan head and thick lacing. Nose has some sweet fruity coffee, some chocolate and roasted malts. Big on roast in the flavor, coffee, chocolate, and a very nice spicy dry finish. Crisp. Quite drinkable. Full-bodied for a small beer. Enjoyed it considerably.

one of my favorite stouts. pours black and thin with little tan head that disappears fast. aroma is burned malts and rich coffee. taste is bitter coffee up front and finishes a little sweeter thanks to the malts. great stout any time

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2009 This one took me completely by surprise. I really wasnít expecting too much for some reason. The hops really stand out in the aroma. The strong dry, roasted malt, hoppy aroma is excellent. I now knew immediately that I was going to love this beer. Hell yeah, the flavor is great. Packed with dry roasted malts, hops, chocolate and coffee. You really canít ask for much more when it comes to the balance of flavors here. Best dry stout hands down.
