3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a foul black, notes of red when backlit. A wisp of beige head lingers long after the pour. Aroma is cigar smoke and roasted malts similar to Mikkeller (thanks Huhzubendah). Flavor is roasted malt and toxic char with a dirty finish.

Deep black, medium heavy body, with pretty persistent ringing. Nose is burnt malts, anise. Ashy malts with anise dry. Complex with something going on I can’t quite pin down...probably that 3 Floyds magic.

Bottle as shown .. . Black screen .. Mild foam, lacing .. . Toast and burnt pie crust .. . Light mouth, abv is well masked .. . Decent but underwhelming .. . . I hate that. I worked out my legs on Sunday and I’ve been waddling around my office all week. Pretty
sure my co-workers think I spent my weekend getting pounded in the ass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks manbrognig74! Pours dark black with a large brown puffy cloudy head that eventually dissipates leaving nice, if clumpy, lacing. Aroma is roasty chocolate. Flavor is the same, with some anise, light sweet and medium bitter, lingering bitter finish. Medium body, some ABV burn. Quite a bit of acidity, almost like coffee was added. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle purchased at the brewery 10 months ago into a 3F pint glass a very dark black with a thick dark beige head.
Aroma very slight coffee and heavy cocoa.
Flavor is nutty malted cocoa. Some bitterness due to this being a more hoppy stout which so works. Balanced nicely.
Really love this brew--ALOT.
Not like every other over sweet stout yet very smooth and drinkable.
