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.

(Served in a tulip glass)

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.

M- This beer has a medium light mouthfeel with a gentle alcohol warmth when it warms.

O- This beer has nice dark char notes in a big but nice drinking porter with a much softer hop profile that remember.

Pours a dark amber with about a half inch of head. I'd really appreciate more head, but with a growler fill carbonation goes down hill in a hurry. The smell is nothing special. SOme roasted malt and that's about it. The taste is unique IMO. Malty with a lot of hop flavor without excessive bittering. It tastes a little too hoppy for a baltic porter but the mouthfeel is great. It reminds me of a hoppy choclate shake. I'm not doing justice to the flavor, but it really is a great drinker.

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.
