Had at the brewpub. Pours a midnight, motor oil black with a dark tan head that is almost gone right away. Loads of sugary lace spots that don’t cling together. Nose is sweet, but there is a ton of citrus hops (maybe a certain New Zealand style hop) in there. Malts, but not that roasted. Tastes like sugary toffee, with a bitterness that is really nice. Chocolate, a touch of coffee. Booze. Just awesome. They need to bottle this. MajorBuzz (18) - Munster, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Black, large creamy bubbly tan head. Chocolate, sweet and coffee malt and earthy pine aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Dark chocolate, licorice and sweet cream with notes of fruity pine. Excellent. jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
On draft at Three Floyds. A beer named as such caught my need for a great stout and did I get it? Even better. It was like a hop bomb and a Imperial stout had a beautiful perfect proportionate baby. This beer was pitch black with a tan head. Smells of all things stout and DIPA at the same time. Hops and chocolate/roasted coffee. I was surprised by the body. Considering how it looked and smelled you would think it would be almost cloyingly thick and coating but instead it was pleasant. A wonderful mouthfeel. Amazing. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 Enjoyed on tap @ 3 Floyd’s with friends. Appearance is pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma has a rich hop profile with huge chocolate and coffee notes, smells decadent. Taste is phenomenal. Awesome stuff. Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2014
