On tap at Three Floyds, Black pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and almost roasted coconut. Taste is chocolate malt and piney dry hop finish Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Bomber. Pours a very dark brown, almost pitch black with a finger of effervescent, chocolatey head that dissipates quickly. A HUGE amount of lacing. Aroma is chocolate, alcohol, caramel, roasted malt, coffee and a very well hidden hop presence. Delicious. The alcohol is present, but perfectly balanced with everything else. Mouth is very boozy up front with coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Citrus hops definitely come into play here. Absolutely delicious. Three Floyds has definitely upped the ante with this brew.

Black with big, creamy, foamy, brown head, good legs / Unusual, herbaceous nose of weed, dandelion, pine, roast barley, baking spice, bread / Medium to full body, smooth & creamy, mostly dry with some astringency, good fruit but could be fuller, with bitter finish / Flavors of dark roast coffee, unsweetened chocolate, roast grain, pine, weed, with notes of caramel, date / A little over roasted and hopped, such that the body fruit doesn’t quite hold up, but still a fine stout. kmbrewmaster (6) - - MAY 17, 2013 does not count
Great balance, smooth taste, burnt flavor. Touch of hops, but not overpowering. My wife likes it. Scipio (1117) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a medium, creamy looking tan head. The aroma is unusual. It contains coffee, caramel, and some chocolate. Additonally, there is lots of citrus notes of grapefruit and orange. Taste continues along the odd first impressions. There is plenty of chocolate, licorice, and some coffee, along with grapefruit and pine as well. Aftertaste is chocolate, licorice, and some big pine flavors. It lasts a long time. Although it isn’t the strongest, the alcohol content makes itself readily known. Medium bodied, with a chewy texture, with some surprisingly lively carbonation. What a strange beer. It might be mistaken for a black IPA actually with the different things going on in here. But the only thing that matters is that its really good. Get this if you find it.

Draught at Three Floyds. Poured black with beige head good lace. Moderate aroma of citrus. Quite smooth very hop forward but you can get hint of the underlying stout.

Bomber in a trade. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, and very nice hoppy bittering background, their is also a nice milky creamy mouthfeel. A very good beer from three Floyd’s as always!!! ryecatcher (1454) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bomber from my most recent trip to Munster. Pours an opaque stouty blackish-brown with a thick espresso colored head, crazy lacing. Nose is roast and coffee, some citrus-hoppy 3-Floydness. Relatively dry and mainly a lot of roasted barley mingling with hops and coffee (i.er. it tastes like the nose) On a side note: if it wasn’t from 3Fs, I probably wouldn’t drink something that has the words ’municipal waste’ included on the label... let alone the word ’toxic’... but they get a free pass. This wasn’t anything mind-blowing (particularly considering the source brewer) , but still a nice stout. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Blackish pour. Flavor of roast, some chocolate, typical FFF hops. A very normal yet satisfying black ipa/hoppy stout. Ibrew2or3 (8660) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Big bottle (22oz?) pours with a very dark body supporting a near creamy looking mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some burnt malts, earthy lightly lime like citrus hops and a touch of spicy black strap molasses. The taste is rich and near creamy with a velvety mouth feel delivering up dark roasted malts, rich pine hops and then thin layers of earthy lime peel. This is solid where I’m getting a terrific balance of malts, dark roasted malts and rich bitter hops. Lovely Black IPA.
