Great balance, smooth taste, burnt flavor. Touch of hops, but not overpowering. My wife likes it.

Scipio (720) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a medium, creamy looking tan head. The aroma is unusual. It contains coffee, caramel, and some chocolate. Additonally, there is lots of citrus notes of grapefruit and orange. Taste continues along the odd first impressions. There is plenty of chocolate, licorice, and some coffee, along with grapefruit and pine as well. Aftertaste is chocolate, licorice, and some big pine flavors. It lasts a long time. Although it isn’t the strongest, the alcohol content makes itself readily known. Medium bodied, with a chewy texture, with some surprisingly lively carbonation. What a strange beer. It might be mistaken for a black IPA actually with the different things going on in here. But the only thing that matters is that its really good. Get this if you find it.

charule (1303) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Draught at Three Floyds. Poured black with beige head good lace. Moderate aroma of citrus. Quite smooth very hop forward but you can get hint of the underlying stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bomber in a trade. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and very nice hoppy bittering background, their is also a nice milky creamy mouthfeel. A very good beer from three Floyd’s as always!!!

ryecatcher (825) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bomber from my most recent trip to Munster. Pours an opaque stouty blackish-brown with a thick espresso colored head, crazy lacing. Nose is roast and coffee, some citrus-hoppy 3-Floydness. Relatively dry and mainly a lot of roasted barley mingling with hops and coffee (i.er. it tastes like the nose) On a side note: if it wasn’t from 3Fs, I probably wouldn’t drink something that has the words ’municipal waste’ included on the label... let alone the word ’toxic’... but they get a free pass. This wasn’t anything mind-blowing (particularly considering the source brewer) , but still a nice stout.

crossovert (7921) - Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Blackish pour. Flavor of roast, some chocolate, typical FFF hops. A very normal yet satisfying black ipa/hoppy stout.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Big bottle (22oz?) pours with a very dark body supporting a near creamy looking mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some burnt malts, earthy lightly lime like citrus hops and a touch of spicy black strap molasses. The taste is rich and near creamy with a velvety mouth feel delivering up dark roasted malts, rich pine hops and then thin layers of earthy lime peel. This is solid where I’m getting a terrific balance of malts, dark roasted malts and rich bitter hops. Lovely Black IPA.

JStax (3244) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
22 ounce bottle thanks to a friend that picked it up for me. Pours a thicker black with a beige head of foam. Aroma is spruce, caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Taste has similar tendencies. It’s more sweet than bitter, though, which surprised me from the aromatics I was picking up on. I ended up really enjoying this beer.

ryanscourt (798) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Dark brown with huge citrus hop nose. Strong hop flavor with dark roasted malt. Akin to a black ipa, there is such a hop prescience. Malt kind of takes a back seat. Fairly bitter. Definitly a hybrid style stout but enjoyable. Nice chocolate finish lingers.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sampled at DLD 2013. Dark brown color. Little khaki head, little loose bits of lace. Good earthy herbal hoppy aroma. Hint of chocolate malt. Medium to bigger body. More dry texture. Lighter carbonation. Good big bitter taste, light spicy bitterness. Solid.
