22 oz. bottle, sent from StFun (thanks a lot, Josh), pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma is full of roasted malt, a little smoke, a little anise and licorice. Flavour brings out some roasty notes, some metallic notes, a bit of smoke, and oxidation. Full-bodied, a bit sludgy, with some notes that don’t really blend well -- seems a bit off the mark for the Three Floyds typical quality. Only decent. chrisv10 (18211) - DENMARK - JUN 2, 2011

Dark brown color, small beige head. Toasted malty, ashy and a bit smokey aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, licorice and lots of coffee, coffee beans. Decent but maybe too much coffee.
Bottle, 22oz, shared by OleR. It pours an almost black body, at least it’s very dark brown. Light tan head of moderate size on top. Some lacings. The aroma is roasted and chocolatey, with some coffee, as well as fluorish, resiny hops. A faint smoke note in the end. The flavor is a bit more pronounced than the aroma, with the same roasted and chocolatey thing running the show, and the hops bringing balance to the accounts. Well, at least close to balance. Lightly roasted towards the mostly chocolatey and piney finish. Some room for coffee too, and a lasting bitterness. Full-bodied, and nicely carbonated, sweetish, yet dry, on the palate. A rather lovely one, both tasteful and dangerously easy to drink. 120825 jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 2, 2011
