nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2013
On tap at FFF. Unfiltered burgundy brown. Shady off-white head. Oily, resinous, vegetal..but still sorta Belgian. Old school dark Belgian dark feel, with a freshish touch. Bitter brown chocolate, Sort of has those sweet Eastern European chocolate undertones. Belgian Dunkel meets FFF. Brutal but good.

I had this at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012. It pours brown color with a light tan head. The aroma smelled sweet and roasty with some spice to it. Flavor of caramel, chocolate and fruit with nice carbonation. Taste was of candy sugar and fruity spice but not to sweet overall not bad but not my style.CHEERS!

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours a chocolate brown color with amber/mahogany edges and a two finger light beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Interesting aroma with quite a bit going on. Sweet and roasted malt notes with eatery dark fruit notes and zesty spice. Hints of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toast along with pepper, clove and vinous fruit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a complex flavor profile that’s similar to the aroma. Stronger malt presence than expected for the style with a nice mix of sweet and roasted notes. Hints of caramel, toffee, hazelnut and cocoa followed by peppery spice and vinous dark fruit. There’s some clove, cinnamon and candy sugar followed by grape, plum and fig. Toward the finish there’s some boozy heat and an earthy hop presence that gives off slight dry bitterness. Pretty complex and well balanced but nothing extraordinary.

Frank (2813) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Ruddy brown and headless. Fruity and a touch roasy, oversweet and flat. Kind of a mess. There is really no way a sensible person could taste this and not think it’s awful.

Creamy mouth, deep brown pour. Small head. Aroma of sugar. Big alcohol taste and yeast. Dry finish.

HonkeyBra (3318) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a chestnut brown color with a small eggshell white colored head. Aroma of Brown sugar, Belgian yeast, caramel and chocolate. A bit all over the place as im not sure where this beer fits style wise except just being Belgian. Flavor is dark malts, dark fruits, mild caramel sweetness. Somewhat unfocused and searching for identity, which is something I sympathize with, its just not a character I enjoy in my beers. Medium bodied, finishing on the bitter side. Overall, it’s fine.

jstraw (1911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2012
Dark brown with fair, creamy, tan head / Sherry-like nose of brown sugar, nuts, oak, and dark fruit / Medium to full body, moderately sweet, with great balance and just a hint of heat on the dry finish / Elegant flavors of hazelnuts, brown sugar, and oak, with notes of raisins, banana, and dates / Just great.

hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2012
Draft - CCB’s Hunahpu’s Day 2012… Pours a cloudy dark caramel with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The aromatic highlights are sweet, dark fruits – figs, dates, raisins - and dark bread dough with an unfortunate trace of a clove-like phenol. A component I despise in beer. Wish I didn’t, but I do. Anyhow, it’s medium to full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor mirrors the aroma, but also offers singed caramel and more bitterness than I expect from this style. What am I? An idiot? We’re talking Three Floyds here, right? Ok, moving on - Finishes bready, lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Thanks go out to Beershine for the share!

Theis (13353) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
Draught at Three Floyds Brewpub. Clear dark brown - white head. Raosted, raisins, amber malts, high malty, yeasty, yeasty, light phenolis, cocoa, nutty, very light hoppy bitterness, bisquit, toasted malts. OK.
