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.

4.24/5 rDev +5%

A - Very dark brown, essentially opaque except at the very edge, with a light tan head, moderate but quickly fading, and producing mild lacing.
S - A big nose of roast, almost like toast. Chocolate and a slight hint of booze.
T - Follows the nose, with a big malty toasted grain bite, and a strong bitter element that comes forward in the close and trails off.
M - Silky but fairly light on the tongue, and with no build.
O - A solid baltic porter, delicious but not too heavy. The 9.0 ABV hides well, keeping this a relatively easy drinker that could pack a serious punch.
