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

Another disappointment from Three Floyds. Aroma was nice with strong malt bill with chocolate and hops. Appearnce was dark with a tan head, nothing really special. Mouthfeel was on the thinnish side and the flavor was off somehow. Hops and smoke really donít make good bedfellows. So far 0-2 for the boys from Indiana.

Poured a watery black from the bomber with a thin white head. Little aroma, no hops, slightly roasted. Initial flavor was nice, malty and roasted with coffee notes but extremely weak. The flavor was too simple and faded quickly. Reminder me more of a porter than a stout. Unimpressive as far as micro-stouts go.

You really have to chew the hell out of this beer to get any sort of complex malt character and even then, there is hardly a hint of goodness. Itís outrageously hoppy in both the aroma and flavor. Itís unbalanced for me, way too hoppy and i like hoppy beers. Not enjoyable, but finishable.

Average stout. There is nothing wrong with the aroma and taste, but they are both just too bland. This beer needs to go to the gym and work out.

Dark and lifeless. Too thin for a stout. The only distinguishing marks are some bitter hops. Itís soapy and weak. Disappointing from such a good brewer.

Draft - odd aroma for a stout. Next to nothing but grassy hops. Nearly black body with a medium brown head. The hops fight with the chocolate/coffee malt. Far from my favorite.

Bottle (bomber). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), moderately to heavily hoppy (apricot, resin), with notes of vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A black IPA, you might say. Ehhh. Very hoppy, with an abrasive, sour flavor balance. Seemed hotter than it is. Not enjoyable.

Aroma is tons of American hops, but just a bit of roasted malt... or anything else really. Appearance is something of a let down- thin thin head atop a watery looking black body. Flavor is hard to pin down- it starts off like Alpha King mixed with a normal stout... not so tasty. As it warms, the stout character comes out a bit more, but the hops still stay there in the finish. This creates a sort of skanky taste. Finally, this is possibly the lightest bodied stout Iíve ever had from a Microbrewery. Not 3Fís best beer... but that didnít stop them from charging $11 for a bomber.

Pine hop bite. Caramel and coffee in a thin malt body. I dont know, but I found it kind of bland. Not a standout beer that I was expecting. Still a decent beer, and still a Three Floyds fan.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of drfabulous. Thanks Jeff! Pours a hazy, dark brown appearance with a fluffy, deep brown head. Roasty dark malty, slight pinesol/cleanser, organic aroma. Burnt, roasty, dark chocolate malty flavor again with a piney, cleanser-like flavor and a bit of fruitiness. Some nice elements like some roasty espresso, but I am totally getting a cleanser flavor that Iím not fond of. I think itís just that the hops are piney and sappy that I get the pinesol flavor. That being said, it isnít that hard to drink.
