”. I drank this beer as I took my headphone tour of the brewery. It filled the glass with a black solution that rested under a thick creamy chocolate head. The aroma was a sensation of chocolate, roasted grain, vanilla, coffee, and cocoa. This beer introduced itself in a thick smooth manner with the taste of chocolate, toffee, coffee, roasted grain, and vanilla. I took a growler home and when tasting it again after drinking another oatmeal stout I detected a hint of smoke lingering in the background. I always keep my fingers crossed that when I make it back to Three Floyd’s brewery I will be able to get another growler.

On tap at the brewery. Dark beer with a lugubrious brown foam ring in the glass with an attractive oil slick in the middle. Enticing coffee nose. Very smooth mouthfeel, with lots of coffee, chocolate, cherry and dried fruit, with even a hint of smoke. Very nice beer.

Homebottled, thanks TAR&CB. Black color looks like and Imperial Stout. Aroma is mostly roast, coffeeish, burnt, a bit of vanilla, malty sweetness. Flavor is somewhat smokey and sweet. Full bodied(very thick for the style). Balanced finish with the hops coming through up front and the roast malt bitterness working against the sweet carmelly favor at the finish. Well Done.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Opaque black. Gorgeous, microscopic-bubbled mocha foam. Saliva-inducing aroma of buttery espresso, candle wax, shoe polish, and fudge. Remarkably rounded roastiness with hints of vanilla beans, coffee, and rich char. Lushly creamy on the palate, but lightly prickly, as well. Gushing burst of rounded roast suffuses into a rich espresso background, quieting the twangy aspects of the roast. Inky and extremely oily with notes of tar. Fresh vanilla bean underpinnings add more softness to the oily body while highlighting the sumptuous char astringency. Snappy phenolic flash briefly lessens the richness, making room for a boisterous Chocolate malt onset laden with a steady flurry of roast. Esters and earthy hops remain a mere afterthought to the malt immensity. Finishes with licorice and moist chocolate cake flavors and lingering roasty remnants. If you’d be so lucky to find this on cask, you must think you’re in heaven.

Pint at the brewery and growler-I’m not a huge fan of sweet/oatmeal stouts (this one is some of both I believe)but damn nice beer. Great body, lots of chocolate, coffee, and certainly some hops too. This would be a nice compliment to their other beers if they decided to brew it more often for distribution.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewery: Nearly opaque with small lasting tan head and very good lace. The arom has notes of caramel, coffee, toasted oats, buttery chocolate, aromatic and earthy too. The taste starts with a bittersweet tone with a light lactic twang. Lots of oats and mocha character. Coffee and a touch of smoke upon the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, good. Darn tasty sweet stout, worthy of the trip to Munster.
