22. Thanks, BitBucket! Black, thin tan head. Big chocolate nose. Nice creamy medium body. Chocolate and roast on themid-palate with just a little bit of hop on the back end to balance it out. Mild dry cocoa finish. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Dark black pour from bomber. Chocolate, citrus and coffee taste. Medium mouthfeel, with a nice bite to the finish. Decent stout. LeMunche (66) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Probably my least favorite Three Floyd’s beverage I’ve had to date. Too much going on for a dry stout. Looks like they were trying to make a beer with a little bit of something for everyone and ending up with an average beer. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Tasted at the April Northern California Beer Tasting. This stout poured a dark black color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized tan foamy head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate and a touch of diacetyl. Medium bodied stout. The malts are burnt malt, chocolate and coffee. The hops are piney and resinous. Kind of weird in an imperial stout. Decent balance. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. valpoaj (745) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2009
Poured from bomber...black in color with a thin tan head. Aroma has a dry feel to it with burnt malts and has a strong coffee feel to it. Flavor is lots of sweet, heavily (burnt) malt, a hint of dark fruit, and old coffee, and some chocolate notes. Palate is very dry, and somewhat harsh...a bitter ending to it as well. Something about this one makes me say ’blah’...maybe I’ve just grown to expect a bit more from FFF.

Pours very nice black with tan head. I get dry tannic tea, and roasted malt in the aroma. The flavor is like the smell - roasted barley mixed with black tea that’s been steeped too long. The mouthfeel is somewhat thin and very drying - cottonball in the mouth feel. Overall, this is probably my least favorite FFF beer to date and I sadly didn’t even finish the bottle. mxtur (266) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2011
It was good. I had higher hopes for it, but it was a lot lighter than I thought it would be for being so dark. I like surprises though. Chadquest (37) - Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2013
A year old bottle. I try to let the hops fade in stouts at least a little bit.
light looking body with a head that is about a finger or more, loose and dissipates.
Nose is roast forward with strong hops batting second, hint of coffee in the roast.
Flavors are roasty and dry chocolate for most. hops brighten this up somewhat in a citrus sort of manor.
Mouthfeel is thinner and more carbonated then i prefer.
Decent beer, but out of my price range for what it is, but maybe there just isn’t enough going on besides the hops. When i age other hoppy beers like Expo or Yeti they turn out great, this one, not so much. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Another disappointment from Three Floyds. Aroma was nice with strong malt bill with chocolate and hops. Appearnce was dark with a tan head, nothing really special. Mouthfeel was on the thinnish side and the flavor was off somehow. Hops and smoke really don’t make good bedfellows. So far 0-2 for the boys from Indiana. nimbleprop (8598) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Poured a watery black from the bomber with a thin white head. Little aroma, no hops, slightly roasted. Initial flavor was nice, malty and roasted with coffee notes but extremely weak. The flavor was too simple and faded quickly. Reminder me more of a porter than a stout. Unimpressive as far as micro-stouts go.
