1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but this was my first Three Floyds drain pour, and it wasn’t just me. The 5 other guys I shared this with all dumped theirs too. Nice deep brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma was overcooked broccoli and sulfur farts. Huge vegetal notes and a lot of bad bad yeast flavors. The beer tasted "green" and like it hadn’t finished fermenting. Made it about 2 sips in then couldn’t stomach it anymore. Disappointing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured dark brown with a smallish tan head. Aroma was roasted malt, licorice, citrus, pine, and ... a definite brininess. Flavor tipped toward the black rather than the IPA (nice change of pace for a BIPA). Roasted malt, licorice, caramel, and toffee. Moderately bitter, low sweetness. Medium palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma consists of grapefruit, licorice, roasted malts, pineapple, and rye. Of all of these impressions, I find the citrus and licorice being dominant. The taste, especially early, comes across as being more malty, being a mixture of roasted and earthy. Citrus grapefruit is still very noticeable, as well as licorice. Aftertaste loses much of the maltiness and is strong in the citrus and licorice, and lasts awhile. Medium in body, with a slightly sticky, yet slick texture. Average carbonation. This has the feel of a Three Floyds beer. Its very enjoyable.
