3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Warpigs. Pitch black with a beige head. Aroma is of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is like the aroma but with notes of licorice and some hops. Sweet with a bitter finish. Full body. Pretty good, although at about $30 for a small glass Iím still bleeding from the ass and Three Floyds can go fuck themselves in the future. Grossly overpriced and overhyped. Just like Dark Lord.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, citrus fruits, grassy and piney too. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter with some alcohol too. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. An excellent and hoppy Impy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
5 oz taster glass, from tap.
Appearance: Your typical stout - black of color, dark tan of head, with good retention.
Smell: Straight hops, nothing else. This smells much like I imagine perfume that has gone rancid smells.
Taste: The taste follows the aroma, nothing but a solid wall of acrid floral bite. I canít even conceive of any other descriptor than what I would guess taking a swig of some excessively flowery perfume right from the bottle could be like.
Mouthfeel: I got two sips in, and couldnít even register mouthfeel, so I default this category to decent.
Overall: This is a black IPA that is mislabeled as a stout. Those of you who donít share my hop sensitivity would probably find it amazing - I get a single note barrage of disgust.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour opaque black with thick tan head. Nose initially very hoppy, almost like a black IPA. As it warms much more dark roast, bakers chocolate, currant, some plum. Taste mix of bitter and roast up front. Late palate the chocolate shows up. Very hoppy for a RIS, but I expect that from 3F. Great mouth feel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into signature teku glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, pine, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, floral, grass, light dark fruit, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and dark/roasted malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, pine, floral, grass, light dark fruit, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, orange peel, dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, molasses, pine, light char, and floral/roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a great bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/sticky, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great hoppy imperial stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Datk pour. Extremely FFF hop-forward nose, and the flavor lends this to being an "imperial black ipa" piney hops, fiar amount of hop bitterness to go with a pretty plain jane imperial stout. The price Iíve seen around is ludicrous.
