brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
On tap @ Three Floyds. Black in color with a khaki head. Nice roasted malt, cocoa powder, and toasted bread on the nose. Quite hop forward as well. Strong floral and citrus hop aromas. Big grapefruit, orange, and tangerine. Flavor is lightly bitter with roasted malt, grapefruit peel, and a hint of coffee. Lots of orange and tangerine. Some cocoa powder and dark chocolate, toffee, and molasses.

Tmoney99 (10574) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt and citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is the very good brew.

DuffMan (6668) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
On tap @ Publican in Chicago. How is this not a black IPA? Incredibly hoppy porter in true 3F fashion, delicious, incredibly drinkable. But truthfully, it is the hops that steal the show here, fresh and bright and yummy.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Munster, IN). Stop down after work for beer and cheap gas. Pours a richer deeper brown black pour, a good haze, lighter glowing brown copper edges show some fire, reddish ruby glow. A cakey tannish head atop stays as a firm layer, laces ok overall and sticks around as a firm layer. Aromas are blasts of citrusy hops, grapefruit and tropical fruits, florals and grass. Rich seemingly Citra nose gives some oomph and Amarillo comes in more as we work in. Tropical, hoppy fruit melange with lemons and oranges coming in, some toasty malts, roast, and biscuits. Gentle cocoa give some whispers as the nose adjusts to the hops. Fresh and lively. Nose settles down as it warms a bit. Initial offers a contrast of elements. The hop nose fades on flavor, perhaps due to the dry hop contribution. Toasty and cocoa, biscuits and slowly growing roast. Dark chocolate, darker malts, bread, and toffee. Sweeter oats into the middle with flashes of grapefruit and oranges, some florals, roasty and toasty with some sweeter malts, sufficient bitter hopping as the body ends up on the medium end, perhaps a touch more girthy. Some Amarillo gumball like elements at times, as I call them. Cocoa and bakers chocolate, roasty and dry bittersweet cocoa backend. Dryness, florals, citrus and some intervening pine elements. The hops return, synergistic with the roast and cocoa dryness into the back and finish, a touch resiny, certainly lingering cocoa, roast, florals, and dry citrusy hops, some slight wafts of that tropical and grapefruit nose. A solid beer that has a nose that really seems different than the work as a whole. Fun offering, like the contrast. Nose is great, beer is pretty nice and gives some good contrast of flavors and palate. I can see some people really digging this. Especially the Porter Crowd as it really gives that darker malt slant, the hop profile really gives it something different though

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Draft at FFF, pours black with creamy and foamy tan head. Aroma well thanks Brian I get celery but I don’t mind it that much cuz there’s great pine and citrus too. Flavors are rather roasty, iced coffee and creme, good pine and tangerine citrus. Smooth milky finish. Full bodied. Really dug this one despite the celery.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Draft at Three Floyds. Pours basically black with brown at the edges and a tan head. Opaque. Nose is hoppy and fruity, some resiny notes and cocoa. Kind of like an Alpha Klaus light, that I dig. On tasting, more odd. Celery, earthy and roasty overall. Strange celery note coming from the hops here overall. Medium bitterness, hoppy and cocoa, faint caramel. Decent but the celery gets to me...

pantanap (3353) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Imperial pint consumed at the source... Pours a deeper cola like consistency, less intense at the edges - more brownish, and topped with a soapy light beige head that reduces down to wispy film... Green hoppy citrusy nose with a nutty roast and cocoa component. Fresh and vibrant... Flavors a continuation of the same with a firm roast and green citrus component. Touch shy of medium bodied but fluffy in a way. Carbonation just right. Nice.

Rating from notes. On draft at the pub. Pours a dark brown/black pour. Nice, tan head. Aroma of herbal and leafy hops, lots of chocolate. Flavor is chocolatey, with a nice herbal hop finish. Nice, thick bodied. Overal, good beer./
