A: Pours a clean dark brown pour with a finger and a half head. There is some lacing, and the head quickly dissipates
S: Malts, Malts, and more Malts
T: Definitely a malt bomb with some chocolate and coffee notes. Finishes of with a nice refreshing hint of citrus and pine hops. As with all FFF beers the alcohol is superbly disguised.
M: Creamy upfront and refreshing at the end. One of the most drinkable malt bombs out there.
O: This is another gem by FFF. It satisfies my love of malt bombs with the refreshing aspects of hops.

A- Pours a clean dark mahogany, tan one finger head, not much in retention, very little lacing.

S- Big on the malts! sweet, some alcohol, burnt sugar, smokey, some fruits in the background.

T- Malty, caramel, smokey, big on the dark fruits, slightly chocolatey, light piney hop finish that balances this beer out perfectly.

M- Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, fairly dry crisp finish, a little warming from the alcohol (listed at 7% as per the Three Floyd's website.)

O- I love this beer. I could envision this one being one that would get someone into craft beer. This beer for me ranks among the best out there.

A- Amber colored beer with hints of red when held up to the light. Good carbonation, little head retention

S- Smoke. toffee, butter, chocolate

T/M- Smoky and sweet, very malty. All of the nose scents are also present in the flavor profile. The mouthfeel is rich and thick. A sipper, perhaps, but one worth savoring.

O- A very nice winter beer, one that holds up to the nip in the air and warms you up. While I would normally suggest pairing a beer in this style with salmon, here I am thinking perhaps chocolate cheescake or perhaps bacon wrapped apricots.
