Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, caramel, toffee, nice pine and spicy hops as well into a bit of earth. Taste was a mix of caramel, cocoa, roast into some pine, grass, touch of spice with more cocoa, finishing dry, bitter. kaser (6209) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Aroma is graham cracker, cocoa, biscuits and coffee. Draft pour at Moxee. Black with a ton of foamy and creamy off white head. Taste is tobacco, leather, malts, cream, cocoa and coffee. Fantastic beer b3shine (8795) - Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Draft to pint. Looks good; a lightly translucent dark cola with foamy beige head. Smells and tastes like a Black IPA; dark malt, bitter and piney hops, and a bit of toastiness. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Enjoyable. bpar73 (1117) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2015
On tap at the Pint Room. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Smoky roasted malt, mild hops and toffee in the taste and aroma. A good, but not outstanding porter. marcus (10137) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 16, 2015
On tap at 3 Floyds. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses and smoked malt flavor with a bitter slightly carbonated finish.

This was good porter with a nice balance and sessionable qualities. Dark but not overly strong. The darker malts were complimented well by a little more hop bitterness. rxeight (3039) - Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pint at the brew pub. Black body. Thin light tan head. Light, yet creamy body. Taste is an abundance of fruity hops. Which actually balances quite well with with sweet toasty malts. Classic 3 Floyds - hop a beer that doesn’t normally get hopped mentality. Yet seems restrained by today’s standards. What this really reminded me of was a handful of black IPAs brewed circa 2011, before everyone got obsessed with rye malt and ruined the style. madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Precious Three Floyds at The Pint Room in Carmel, IN. Poured in to a tester.
Look - Dark yellow-brown. Good ivory to tan head on tester glass. A lot of lacing. Head does settle to nothing.
Smell - Dank hop. Chocolate. Char. Berry.
Taste - Very hoppy as advertised. Chocolate. Bubblegum. Bready malt. Charred. Lemon. Citrus finish.
Feel - Chewy. Medium. Very carbonated. Bitterness on tongue.
Overall - Chocolate bubblegum hoppy porter. As close to a black IPA as you can get. I see why this was brought out of retirement. Floyds roots. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2015
On tap at FFF. Pours thick unclear dark black coffee with a creamy and lacy light cocoa colored head. Aroma is lighter roasted and toasted malts. Brings delicious flavors of roasted malts followed gently by the softer piney hops balancing in a creamy body. Sammy (12073) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
Excellent hops and fruity porter. On tap at fff. Hop aroma. Delicious a little cherry. Great drinkability.
