Three Floyd's Gorm Noire

Beer: Three Floyd's Gorm Noire
Brewery Location: Munster, IN
Beer Style: Belgian Dark Ale
Serving Style: On-tap
ABV: 5.2%

My second beer of the day was Gorm Noire. This wasn't on the menu last time I was here, so I was quick to give it a try. It is presented in a tulip glass with a dark brown slightly black hue with a small tan head that collapsed on itself very quickly. The first scents are of fruit and Belgian yeast. As it warmed a little bit I got more spices and a slight malt touch. The taste is mostly dark fruit on the front of my palate, but finishes with a light smokey flavor and cherries. The mouthfeel is very smooth, but I think the carbination is actually rather high and gave the beer a creamy texture. The drinkability is good, but I don't think I would have more than one at a time. The alcohol is low, but wouldn't make for a good session beer. This isn't what you would expect from FFF's, but I think it's a good change of pace and am glad to see them offering this.

4.0 out of 5.

Ok, this is just crazy. Not only did we both go to Three Floyds in the same week, but we both had the exact same two beers!
