Bottle poured into a snifter glass

Dark black color with decent off white head.

Smell is mostly of roasted malt. Hint of chocolate in there somewhere.

Taste is slight maltyness with little else going on that I could tell. Slight bitterness on the finish.

Probably my least favorite Three Floyds beer ever. Not much going on for me.

Had a relatively fresh bomber (about two weeks old) that had something off about it. It took me a while to place a metallic, iron taste/feel to the beer that I couldn't get past.

I'll definitely give it another try once a future batch rolls around, because it was - otherwise - a pretty solid beer.

Had this on draft at 3 Floyd's a few days before DLD weekend.

A: Pretty dark -- seemed black in the dim light at the brewpub with a brown head and nice lacing.

S: Bready & grainy aroma that didn't seem very strong to me.

T: A bit of chocolate and malt notes in the flavor with a definite alcohol presence.

M: Full bodied, lightly carbonated -- leaves a chalky cocoa finish that combines with a bit of alcohol taste.

D: Not real smooth enough to drink more than one, but if you don't mind the alcohol aftertaste it's OK as a sipping beer.

Arrives black with a cocoa-colored head. Good retention and good lacing left behind.
Smell is a resiny maltiness with very light coffee and alcohol notes.
Taste is better represented with dark chocolate, malt, coffee, caramel, smoke, alcohol and hops showing up.
Full-bodied and smoothish with a dry finish. Warming all over the palate and the throat. Very good stuff though the nose is left out somewhat and that drags the whole down some. I really wanted to enjoy this one more as the style is a favorite

Topless wytch had the headache dark malts (see my beerthoughts). Arrives dark brown almost black with an inch of foamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is all roasted malts. Taste is dry and sharp: bitter and edged. Served off the hand pump, it is creamy and coffee rich with chocolate far in the background. Roasty and rich toasted caramel malts and toasted barley. Not my thing but a spot-on porter enhanced by cask-to-hand-pump engine creaminess.

Had on tap the FFF Explosion for Brixie's 78th Anniversary. Served in a snifter.

A: Pours a dark black with thick khaki colored head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick collar that leaves some splotchy lace.

S: Light roasted malts with a touch of chocolate and light sweetness.

T: Roasted malts with bitter baker's chocolate and a light coffee bean. The finish has some dark fruits and malt sweetness. A touch of bitterness is also present on the backend.

M: Medium bodied with a nice full flavor and creamy mouthfeel. The finish is roasty and dry with a nice medium carbonation.

O: A very solid baltic porter. Not overly complex, but the flavors all compliment each other.

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.
