22oz bomber dated 03/04/14.

Pours quite dark with a substantial, frothy, and light khaki head. Looks great. The nose is heavy roast, dark fruit, baker's chocolate, and sweet, creamy coffee. Smells great. Taste is sweet at the very beginning; then transitions to roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, and lots of roasted malt; finishes with a sweet and bitter creaminess. Aftertaste is roasty and bitter. Tastes great. Mouthfeel is slightly chewy and creamy; strong carb action.

A really tasty beer; the flavors are intense but not over the top. Great sweet creaminess that's balanced perfectly with dark roastiness. There's a lot of coffee-like flavor and aroma in Topless Wytch, which was great, so I'd love to see what Three Floyds could do with a straight-up coffee stout or porter.

22 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 03/04/2014, so this is some pretty fresh beer right here at just under a month old. My first encounter with this offering from Three Floyds, and I think also my first porter from them. Awesome bottle art.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a dark woodsy caramel brown; opaque black in the glass with one finger of frothy tan head. Some thin spotty lacing that falls quickly. It's okay to look at, but it's not amazing looking.

S - Chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla beans up front, followed by subtle coffee bean roast. Fudge / cookie dough aromas in there also. A decent aroma of moderate strength, but I do find myself wishing for more.

T - Taste follows the nose: bitter coffee beans, chocolate / cocoa, fudge, vanilla beans, cream, & hints of ashy / dark char sort of tastes. Underlying hop presence is noticeable on the end. More dark barley roast & chocolate malt than anything else.

M - Crisp, smooth and creamy, with spritzy frothy carbonation on the finish. Medium-full bodied with slightly coarse bloating carb presence.

Overall, a nice porter from Three Floyds, but it is slightly above average at best. About what I expected coming from these guys. I'd be more interested to see what the bourbon barrel aged version would be like.

Look - beautiful.... Brown w slight red. Dark dark dark. Head is very foamy and stuck around.
Smell - slight chocolate, has a hint of fruit like a plum, smells like a Baltic porter. Tingles the nose.
Taste - has slight coffee but not overpowering, very clean and doesn't hang around. Taste stays w you but not in a bad way at all and is very consistent.
Feel - smooooth w a great carbonation. Light and not heavy at all.
Overall - this is a fantastic beer and I'd get it every time I see it at the brew pub.

Pours deep woody brown in color and thick in consistency. Head is velvety smooth about half a fringes and retains nicely.

Smell has aromas of chocolate malt and a mild coffee charred presence. Rich malty aroma is balanced with a moderate herbal hop presence.

Taste has rich chocolate and coffee malt flavors forward. There is an herbal bitterness along with a taste of saddle leather and tobacco. Moderate bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, thick, mildy csrbonated and heavy bodied. Not very lager like.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

This had a dense thick foamy head that had true staying power and the body is a completely black hue.

The nose is chocolate malt, roasted coffee, toasted malts, tea leaf and tobacco.

The flavor is dry chocolate malt, kind of rubbery and vastly underwhelming.

The feel is very dry, smooth and light.

This was leading it's way to being a remarkable ale until I actually tasted it and found it to be lethargic and boring.

On tap at Tipsy Cow in Madison, WI. Poured into a tulip glass today, 3/25/2014.

App- dark brown, nearly black body with a one finger white head with minimal retention and some lacing. Nothing special.

Smell- caramel, milk chocolate, bitter dark chocolate and believe it or not, a nice crisp noble hoppiness evoking some earth. All things considered this is very nice.

Flavour- milk chocolate, roast malts, earthy bitterness, a little bit of alcohol warmth. Decent but nothing mind blowing for a Baltic porter.

Mouthfeel- rich, fuller bodied beer with good carbonation and a nice bitter earthy finish. It's about what I expected from Floyds.

Overall- decent example of a Baltic porter that is earthier and more bitter than usual. I'd have liked a more malty, chocolatey porter but this isn't bad by any means.

A- poured dark and opaque, with about 1 finger head. Good lacing

S - roasted barley, coffee. no hop aroma, which is surprising for FFF's

T- incredible! Slight roasted barley flavor is smoothed out by the chocolate and coffee. Tastes somewhat like an expresso milkshake.

M - rich smooth velvety. Almost chewy. Feels like I'm consuming a meal and I love it

O - really surprised by the lack of hop flavor and aroma (since its three Floyd's), but not in a bad way. This is a fantastic beer and I will definitely get it again if I have a chance.

Three Floyds Brewing Co Topless Wytch

From 3/18/14 tasting notes... Enjoyed on tap at Champps Americana Brookfield, WI. This was served in a 12 oz stemmed tulip. Served chilled...

A) This is a dense looking black brew with a full finger of dark head, which settled quickly to a collar. Not much lacing to report.

S) Dark roast and dark fruits. There is a light amount of cocoa powder, a bit of oak and a little smoke.

T) Follows the nose... The flavor is a tad more chocolatey than the aroma. Light smoke, roast, a pleasant sweetness. Not much hops. The alcohol is well hidden.

M) Pretty rich... Full bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.

O) People might expect this to be a hopped up brew because it's from Three Floyds. It seems spot on for a Baltic Porter to me, and is quite enjoyable. Reminded me a of Grande Cuvée Porter Baltique - Les Trois Mousquetaires. Glad to recommend this beer.

For this being a 3F beer, its actually kind of mild and subtle from what Ive come to expect from them. This is a GOOD thing, sometimes they remind me of DFH with their weird ideas and over the top styles. Anyway, Its a solid porter. Maybe a bit too roasty to the style, but it is a Baltic.
A-An oily almost opaque black. Held up to the light some brownish red color can be seen. Very thin head which dissipates quickly. True to the style I suppose.
S- Smells very roasty, and its kinda lacking in that porterlike sour smell Im used to smelling, think St. Peters. This smells more like a stout. I get a small amount of coffee/chocolate, but its more roasted malt than anything. I dont pick up any hop aroma.
T- The taste is very good, but its more like a watery stout than a porter. Very roasty, almost chocolatey, almost no bitterness, I can vaguely taste some hops, but only if I really try.
M-Thin and smooth. Very easy drinking. For such a high ABV, this is suprising. Much like a light bodied stout. Very drinkable.
Overall, lets stick to brewing highly drinkable "to style" brews like this, Three Floyds. Keep doing what youre doing with Zombie Dust, and Dreadnaught.... stop making weird stuff like Man O Awe.

22oz Bomber
$10
Three Floyd's Brewpub

This Satanic bitch dumps from the bottle the color of my soul, black and eager to usurp any light naïve enough to circle it's orbit. Sticky beige lace coats the glass in overlapping pentagrams that would make Aleister Crowley cower. There's no chance of removing those, they've already taken hold.

Forbidden fruit. Adam made his decision and plowed through the blackberries and figs without abandon. As a glutton he proceeds to the fermenting and alcoholic, overripe fruit at the base of the bush. Waking in the morning, the previous night nearly forgotten, Adam finds a molasses like stickiness covering his chin. He feels shame. Reaching to the closest bushes he grabs coffee and tea leaves to cover himself.

Eve returns, now covered in the same tea leaves, two shells in her hand full of brooding liquid. Coffee beans and blackberries fighting to the surface, even they drown here. Her dead eyes look past Adam and hand over a shell, he takes a hungry gulp, the molasses sweetness mingles with the Satanically comforting roast. Forbidden everything, but now comforting, in this terrible place.

It's no longer sunny. The tea leaves are bitter. A swallow seems to cure the insatiable thirst, briefly, before the sandstorm returns. There's alcohol enough for brief euphoria and sleep. Waking up parched, confused, and highly satisfied....

Satan's subordinate, The Topless Wytch, will take advantage of you like she has me. She's soothing, reassuring, and persuasive. She's known as Eve in the Middle East and will steal your soul. You'll try and stop but there's no chance now. Just give in. Eternity isn't that long...

Although no bottle date; this was purchased last October 2012.

Pours a very dark brown with a scant head.

Balsamic sweetness and soy sauce prominent on the nose. Subtle roast, salted caramel, cocoa powder and raisin.

At cooler temps, the hops enrap the tongue in a numbing sensation-love it. Wonderful dark cocoa bar, bitter vanilla extract and roasted marshmallow. Warmer temp provides subtley to the aforementioned in silky fashion and more smokey quality emerges. Warming alcohol underlying all.

Prickly carbonation enlivens the hop quality. Chocolate, caramel and toasty marshmallow linger.

Darn good Baltic Porter with a FFF signature to it. I've had a few but I wanted to put a year on this one-glad I did.

750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasted malt, light char, apple, raisin, coffee, toast, molasses, floral, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with moderate fruitiness. Taste of dark chocolate, coffee, light char, roasted malt, raisin, apple, toast, molasses, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, coffee, light char, light fruits, molasses, floral, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of roasted malt flavors with fruity esters; with minimal cloying sweetness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Baltic porter. Very nice balance and complexity of robust roasted flavors with fruitiness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Right out of the Baltic regions, inspiration is claimed by the Three Floyds Brewing Company and manifests in this manly ale that's much like imperial stout except with a backseat with the roast.

Dark and rusty, the beer's appearance is lightly murky and muddy. But a delicate coffee-like creme fights through the haze and resides on top. Its ivory foam is creamy and somewhat short-lived. Light on lace, it seems that the alcohol impede much of its formation and retention.

Deep, dark, and sultry aromas of dark fruit, rummy alcohol, and heavy toast frame the aromas with both power and grace. Charred berries, grapes, and cherries weave into malt aromas of molasses, chocolate, cofffee, nuts, and toast for complete roundness and satisfaction- as far as the nose is concerned.

Even more powerful, the taste follows closely with strong malty sweetness to start. Burnt caramel quickly turns to black-strap molasses, chocolate, light nutty coffee and toasted walnut. Its middle palate brings about burnt fruit flavors of cherry and grape just before a more vinous "wood aged red wine" taste rises in slight estery and tart form. Finishing modestly oak-like, the beer rounds out with alcohol flavors of spiced rum.

Its highly robust texture is lush and coats the mouth with big residual malt sweetness and a bit of cocoa-like grit. Its sweetness turns tart and lightly astringent, which balances the sweetness and signals a turn towards finish. Warm and spicy, the beer seems to be a more ale-like version rather than the more common "lagered" versions.

Having a lot of barrel aged imperial stouts lately, this beer is in the same class with those. But supplanting more toasty character than that of roast, the beer is soft, supple, and drinkable in comparison even though its body and power suggests something bigger.

Thanks to jbuddle for sending this one as an extra in a recent trade! Served from bottle into Mikkeller taster flute. Poured massively dark brown with a very light tan half finger head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and nutty. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and subtle milk chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. This one was fairly well balanced and had quite a bit going on throughout it. However, it didn't really standout from some of the more exceptional brews I've had from the style unfortunately. It was quite easy to drink and could definitely get you in a lot of trouble if you aren't careful. Definitely worth your time trying this one if you have not done so before.

A - black with a thin, white head that had little retention

S - roasted malts, faint coffee, creamy

T - roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, creamy, some bitterness in the finish; an all around subdued flavor profile

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This one was a bit disappointing for me. I'm not sure if it's because it came from Three Floyds or if it was just subpar in general. The flavors were there, but they were rather faint. This isn't a bad beer, but it didn't have anything that made it stand out. I'm glad I tried this one, but it's not one I would seek out again.

This pours a brown with a faint translucent quality. Slight head as well. It smells malty. It tastes like a porter but I was surprised that it was better, considering that it came from Three Floyd's. it has a medium body.

So many questions with this beer. Why is this witch topless? Why is witch spelled “wytch?” Why was this bomber close to $15? And at that price, why do I buy absolutely EVERYTHING Three Floyds puts out? Alas, we’ll probably never know the answer (to any of them).

A: Dark, chocolate brown body reflects the light so much that I can see myself in the glass. An aggressive pour straight down the middle of the glass gives a stocky beige head for only a moment – soon after, though, only some fizz above the nucleation site remains. Wet, sparse lacing.

S: Overtones of mildly acrid mineral and bittersweet cocoa powder give this a profoundly authentic character of European beer, a rich tradition that has its own la terroir in the hard, metallic water used. The sugars smooth to a creamy character of milk chocolate as the nose is brought down to a sweeter finishing profile of luscious vanilla, sharp roasted coffee, and lingering nutty scents.

T: A full chocolate body fills the palate to every conceivable edge with a dense blanket of warm baker’s chocolate and brown sugar. This flattening-out of the flavors seems to be a setting of the stage, as the front end tightens up in a thick, dark sweetness – tastes of molasses, hazelnut-flavored coffee, anise, and meaty dates. I’d say it’s among the most dense porters I’ve ever had. The cinnamon-spice of mild, herbal hops takes residence in the center of the palate alongside a slight astringency from the roasted, biscuity malt, giving this a bitterness that’s only just noticeable. Finishes with a sweet vanilla flavor contrasted by a dryness not unlike ginger, lingering on like the after-effects of a root beer float.

M: This beer is a mouthful of malts, though it still retains the velvety texture of a porter. The carbonation is all but lost, but not in a syrupy, stout-like way; it’s very apparently to-style.

O: Three Floyds does not do subtle very well, and I’m glad. This is as in-your-face as a Baltic porter is going to be, despite the lack of dense, piney hops that Three Floyds is known for. Still, as far as dark beers go, it’s a style I wouldn’t prefer over something like a stout, an old ale, or even an English porter (thought that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it).

Thanks silverx for sharing
The beer pours black with a thin halo of a tan head. Its nose is slightly roasty with a touch of yeast fruitiness. The taste is roasty, slightly fruity with a bit if caramel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a lingering sweetness. Overall this is an interesting baltic porter, from FFF and a great representation of the style for sure, but not my favorite.

22 oz. bottle poured into a Three Floyds nonic pint glass.

A - Pours midnight black, showing ruby highlights when held up to the light. About a finger of almond head fades quickly; too quickly. Some lacing paints the glass.

S - Smells of milk chocolate, blackstrap molasses, and candied figs. I get faint smokiness, but chocolate and fruit sweetness are dominant. Roasty nuts come through after several whiffs.

T - The flavors are robust starting with obvious coffee/chocolate roastiness. Some char and bitter molasses follow mid-palate. The finish returns to the flavors of baker's chocolate with coffee ground linger. Alcohol is unapparent.

M - The body is medium-thick with moussey smooth carbonation. Drinks like a beer with half the ABV.

O - Thus far I have been very impressed with all of the Three Floyds offerings I have tried. While this one does not live up to the some of the others, it is a very solid beer I would happily have again. It has more flavor than some of the watery Baltic Porters I have tried in the past. Chocolate, roasty, dark fruit notes all contribute to a pretty solid beer. The mouthfeel is amazing, despite the lack of head. In the world of FFF beers, this isn't near the top but it is good compared to the entire craft beer world..

22oz bomber poured into a Gulden Draak tulip glass

Appearance- A light shade of black. Not completely opaque as you can see the littlest amount of light through the edges of the glass. Less then 1 finger of white head that quickly dissipates and leaves no real lacing.

Smell- Coco and bittersweet chocolate with. Not a ton there, but what is, smells very plesant.

Taste- Milk chocolate in the front that transistions to bittersweet chocolate and then has a slight boozy finish.

Mouthfeel- Heavy in body and coats the mouth in a silky smooth way. Just the tiniest shade of watery feel, but that is to be expected in a porter.

Overall- There is a nice amount of complexity with a plesant warming that will be nice on a cold winter night.

Dark black color with decent off white head.

A- This beer pours a jet black body with a thick creamy bubbly tan head and a gentle carbonation supporting it.

S- The charcoal aroma blend with black roasted malt and it has a very mellow quality.

T- The inky roasted black malt has some chalky coffee bean hints to it with a mellow roasted char note in the finish. There is a bitter note that lingers for a moment in the finish. There is a hint of rubber balloons flavor that comes through as the beer opens up but it doesn't overpower the other flavors.
