3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a muddy to opaque black with larger latte foam. Webby, dense lacing. Nose is interesting- caraway, fennel, rye bread, pumpernickel, heavy rustic grain notes, coffee, anise, pine. Almost Black IPA in nose but just a little off. Taste is similar- very bready, heavy crust, roast, caraway seed, pumpernickel. Palate is a bit harsh, some chemicals and sharper lemon tea.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown/black with a frothy tan head. Aroma of toasted chocolate, brown sugar, and citrus/tropical hops. Flavor and body is more on the roasty side but with large hop bitterness on the finish. Notes of cream, roasted malts, and, of course, hops. Three Floyds has been making a ton of stouts/imperial stouts lately that taste more like black IPAs, this is one of them.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I think I have a new favorite beer from Three Floyds. Toxic Revolution is an excellent Stout with a beautiful combination of roasted chocolate and Three Floyds signature hoppiness. Extremely drinkable and somewhat light for a stout. Creamy head and deep dark color.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting stout here. Got lots of complex malt going on, barely present alcohol taste, some bitter flowers, sweetness, and a nice viscosity. Leaves a heavy tan/cream colored lace on the glass. Delicious and blended perfectly.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from BA eorwar. Big thanks! Black/brown pour with foamy tan head. Charry roasted malt and brown sugar with background pine and faint tropical fruit. Lightly sweet upfront with pillowy roasted malt that gives way to a bright, fruity hop bitterness. Residual moderate roast and tropical fruit/pine bitterness. Lightly dry finish. Mouthfeel has a bit of grit to it. The more you drink, the more you lose the roast aspects. Black IPA all the way. This one has a little more depth of flavors as compared to In the Name of Suffering. I thought it was tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In draft and bottle from brewpup. Black pour off white head. Aroma of signature 3floyds hops. Some citrius and pine. Body is medium, fairly thing for a stout. Taste starts as hops but has a chocolate and slight malt finish to it. This was really similar to blot out the sun when it was fresh, but in that the hops did die out and it became a solid imperial stout. Bottom line, this is a really good black IPA right now, might be more of a stout once the hops die off.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black body with a small light brown head. The aroma is very similar to Alpha Klaus, but has more of a darker roast character. Slightly burnt malt, caramelized sugar, chocolate, and of course, hops. The flavor starts out sweet and roasty, but that only lasts a second. There is a lot more hops in the flavor than the aroma. Pine, orange, slight garlic, and resinous flavors all creep out of what seems like a very roasty stout. Finish is bitter, dry, and sweet all at the same time. Not as good as I had hoped.
