22oz bottle, purchased at DLD 2013. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a big tan head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, piney, lightly roasty. Medium on the palate with big, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, coffee, nutty, some pine, some grassy hops, with a smooth, bitter coffee finish. Really blurs the line between hoppy stout and black IPA. Very nice.

22 ounce bottle divided by five. I like the label, the best presented of Three Floydís recent offerings. Aroma is roasted coffee and a fried, oily soy sauce meatiness. Appearance is dark black-brown, but itís pretty liquidy and doesnít have the viscosity found in Three Floydís other stouts - appropriate given that this one isnít imperial. Taste is big on coffee and malted barley, as well as the meaty oil presence that has a salty note. Palate is medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Itís approachable, drinkable, and generally understated in light of who itís coming from. Overall, itís a good stout, but have it when youíre tastebuds are fresh because it has some cues that arenít domineering.

Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - Pours black with a thin foamy tan head. Citrusy nose, with light grassy hops, chocolatey with some light malt. Taste is sweet and roasty with an herbal/citrus hop mix. Lots of sweet chocolate and sweet malt. Medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Really never came together for me.

22oz bottle shared by Brad, thanks! Pours pitch black with a really thin light brown head, the aroma is pretty straight up hops, this is a really fresh bottle but damn, tons of grapefruit and hops mix in with the chocolate and bread notes, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a solid amount of chocolate in the finish, hoppy and sweet at the same time, damn impressive.

DesertDevil (542) - Arizona, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, biscuit, and some black licorice. Clear dark brown color (like strong coffee). Very dry roasted flavor with some toast and rye notes. Dry finish. Solid brew, but not spectacular.

22oz bottle courtesy of Brad. Opaque black body, foamy off-white. This is about as much of a Black IPA as you can be and be a Stout. Mossy, green chocolate hop tones. All out quality. A little dry on the palate...but can that really be a complaint? Awesome beer.

edwardbass (547) - Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2013
A bit of a different stout. Dark brown/black like most. Not so much roasted malt in the aroma for me as very darkly roasted coffee. Taste is malty, coffee with a "sourness" to it that lightens it. One of the more "wandering from the usual path" stouts Iíve tried. Has a much lighter body than usual for a stout. Makes it very drinkable.

Thanks to burg326 for sharing this one at Berliner Bash. Pours a toxic sludge brown-black with a tan head. Nose is dark malts, roasted malt, some black coffee, some bitterness, and a hint of molasses. Flavor is similar with roast, black coffee, some hoppy bitterness, and slight molasses. A medium bodied, roasty and bitter stout.

Bottle. Black pour, tan head. Good retention/lace. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roast, bread. Taste is chocolate, roast, coffee, a bit chalky, pine. Palate is soft, creamy, light bitter finish.

Bomber bottle. Guinness glass. Nice head and retention, with a decent lacing. Deep dark color. Hop nose with hefty resins. Pine is really all over this. Fades into a woody saw dust taste with a chocolate and slight coffee finish.
