Had this at my favorite hole in the wall Brixie’s in Brookfield. Apparently only a few kegs were released and I was lucky to take a pull. This was an over the top, complicated brew and quite an experience. I’m not sure if I’ve ever had anything I didn’t love from 3F. puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Pours out a cloudy redish orange with very good head retention. The nose is sweet malt and hops. Taste- really citrus hop forward initally and then the rich matls kick in. Tons of caramel in this one. Drinkability is very high- great blend of juicy hops and thick malt. One of the better FFF brews I’ve had the chance to try.

A treat when arriving to pick u the long awaited Dark Lord. Sweet pine fragrance, medium mouthfeel, crisp, less hoppy hen most of the other FFF brews, and beautiful auburn color. Nick can't find enoguh time to make more of these gems—too bad. Great Irish red ale. RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
This beer produces a hearty aroma consisting of yeast and hops. It fills the glass with a dark copper colored solution that rests under a cashew colored head. This moderately thick beer flows over the tongue smoothly as it perks the mouth preparing it to enjoy an abundance of taste. The tongue is enticed with a sweet hopppy-yeasty-biscuit taste that has a mild bit of sour hidden amongst the other flavors. This beer fades leaving a nice roasted nut taste lingering on the taste buds and in the throat. amee16 (62) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 10, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2009 Another winner from Three Floyds... This is a beautiful clear red with light lacing. Starts a bit fruity and mildly hoppy. finishes with a woody dryness, does anyone else taste marijuana? Very complex and interesting. Makes me want to fully and slowly taste every sip. This may just be my favorite beer from 3 Floyds!
Re-rate: I can’t find this anymore but the last one I had tasted much milder than the first few. Hmm...

I really, really liked this. Alot. Part of it is that FFF can do not wrong in my mind, but this was great along all lines. Sharp and roasted, this is like Fat Tire on steriods. It wasnt even overpiced. I will definetly get this again before too long, at that level of alcohol I could see this being available in sixers year round, but it wouldnt be worth it if the quality changed any. garrison (812) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Purchased from "Liquor Direct" in Covington, Kentucky - My, this nice brew poured a mahogany hued brew with a tall tan head of foam and a sweet, complex aroma. Tastewise, it has strong body, maltiness, and a nice hops presence@ Good stuff! SSSteve (4006) - - MAY 18, 2013
22oz bottle. pours a clear amber under a large, whipped, beige head. sweet, malty, worty, maris otter, cereal malty goodness with a distinct floral hop. just enough floral/citrus hops to balance the residually sweet, worty tasting, toasty caramel malt flavor. is this beer for real? it tastes like a bowl of oatmeal covered in rich honey, brown sugar and syrup with a big, fat, handful of aroma hops and a fresh dry hopping session. not very traditional, but when you make something this good, i suppose you can call it whatever you want. cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 14, 2005
I have to say I was thoroughly impressed with this beer. It pours a nice red/amber with a slight head. The smell is of wonderful dry hops. The taste is nice with carmel followed by citrus. Excellent beer. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Happy to find this in a wine shop in Williamsburg. Medium red amber appearance, nice, lasting tan head. Big aroma of pineapple, very appealing. Flavor matched. The malts were balancing, faintly of caramel, but the hop steal the show without being overpowering. Pineapple, with a touch of grapefruit on the finish. This was fantastic, far better than I had expected from the relatively lukewarm reviews here.
