Bottle Pours a nice clear mahogany with a modest off white head. Good even lacing. Aroma is a rich slightly sweet, pitted fruit and dark malts. Flavors are a nice balance of malt and slight chocolate notes. Feel is medium heavy, and the finish is very smooth and soft. Very little bitterness.

This is a top notch beer for malt lovers.Very,very flavorfull,and malty with enough hops to keep it in balance.
Looks about as good in a glass as you can expect a beer to look.
Kinda high in the abv department,so be carefull.
Has a mild aroma,but what aroma it has is very nice.

Dark brown color with a red tint. Small head and an excellent flavor. A great ale to sit back and relax with. Didn;t really taste the chocolate, but the hops and malt were very present and the finish was spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hmm... opened with barely a squeek and poured with no head. Itís carbonated, but barely. I guess shipping can take itís toll :P Pours an elegant, crystal clear-but-dark brown that shines red when held up to light. Very neat. Aroma is very mild, but thatís probably due to the utter lack of a head I got. A vigorous swirl at half glass pulls up dates, chocolate, smoke and malt. Nice. Flavor is mellow and rich- chocolate again, malt, smoke, dark bread, caramel. Again, itís a bit flat, and the finish seems to coat my mouth substantially. All in all a good beer from FFF... but whoís suprised about that?

Deep brown/black. Nice tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Nice malty flavors with some toffee, and a little kick of hops at the finish.

3.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got this one out of a bottle. Nice colored head, brownish and creamy, which left some lace. The color of the beer itself is a nice robust dark brown. Almost no aroma whatsoever from this bottle. The taste has a bit of caramel and some chocolate, and a bit of smokiness. You can really taste the malt and itís also a little more on the bitter side than most Scottish Ales Iíve had, which is good. Goes down and puts a warmth in your belly. I still like Skullsplitter a little more, but Three Floyds is really doing Indiana proud.

Dark chestnut brown w/ mahogany hue. Tight, creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel w/ hints of coffee & smoke. Full, oily body. Lightly roasty chocolate, toffee, caramel & molasses flavour w/ some earthy, spicy hops & a long bitter finish.

Chocolate and coffee in the aroma, ruby, small toffee head. Tastes like a melted tootsie roll, some orange hints also. Delightfully rich and bitter. Terrific!
Thank You joey_capps.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear dark brown with red highlights, thin white head, sweet barley malt aroma thatís slightly coffee-ish, flavor is alcoholic with strong accents of chocolate, thin palate which leads to a dry finish thats a little on the thin side, but the label is pretty tight, Bobby Bruce can rage but heís a little over rated in my book.
