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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2005 Well, Three Floyds had to lay an egg sometime, and this is it. Really boring, watery stout, distinguished only by a ton of bittering hops. Normally Iíd like this level of hoppiness, but here thereís nothing to back it up.

22oz bomber from JoshuaB. Pours a thin black with a ligh tan head. Nose is light chocolate and alcohol, some mild toffee notes. Taste is thin, watery, light chocolate, more alcohol, a dry bitter off sensation. This just didnt sit well with me, but I cant put my finger on this feature that just made the beer not good. It had kind of a bland, watered down and just not fitting taste.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass. Pours a straight black color with a foamy head the hop aromas are a bit odd along with more expected aromas of roasted coffee beans, malts and hot caramel The flavors were a complete mess. The hops really dominated and left a bitter aftertaste. The feel was pretty good, but it didnít make up for how bad the hop flavor was on this Very disappointing. The hops completely overpowered the other flavors when tasting it while they were pulled back a bit with the aromas. Not one of the better beers on the day
