On-tap at FFF.

A - Pours black, light tan-colored head, thin ring.

S - Roast, chocolate, toasted malts, some light fruity notes. Not quite as sweet as some other BP's I've had, but I like the fact it's a little more roasty then sweet & fruity.

T - Again, more roast/chocolate/malts then anything. The dark fruit sweetness is even less on the palate when compared to the nose. Finish is light chocolate bitterness and toasted nuts.

M - Medium to full body, light carbonation, creamy finish.

O - A nice BP that I've never several times in several different locations. A little easier to drink because it's not quite as sweet as most others in this style and not cloying at all. Good stuff.

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.

8 oz. served in a plastic cup on March 25th, 2012 during the FFF Deconstruction. Moving straight from an English to a Baltic porter.

A - Somewhere between a medium brown swirled with deep black. A bit of that faint deep violet hue. Light head, good lacing.

S - Plenty of chocolate, spices, light syrup (more like Maple, less like molasses). Faint note of light fruit zest. More muted than I'd hoped.

T - Big-time milk chocolate, about on the level of Stone IRS here. Roast, light coffee. Strong contrasting hop cones near the backend. A big porter here. Great backend aftertaste of cocoa powder and dark chocolate.

M - Medium body, bitter light dry finish. Some alcohol warming in the throat.

D - Aroma was so-so, taste made up for it. The chocolate isn't overbearing but I'm not convinced that this is as well-integrated as it could be.

On tap for Gravity Head 2012: it was freshly tapped an hour before I tried it.

A – It was opaque brown/black and looked rather thin. It does not appear very viscous. There was a small tan/yellow head which lingered, and a moderate smooth lacing on the rim.

S – Chocolate malt, big chocolate upfront. Faint hops in the background.

T – Different from the nose… Charred wood upfront… smoky malt; there’s also some sweetness that is different than the chocolate: caramelized sugar and dark roast coffee. There is a slight burn, but not strong for the high ABV. Finishes dry and with a slight smack of hops.

M – Quite easy to drink for a 9%. It was velvety smooth, which was probably the highlight of the brew.

O – It’s a bit one-note. Not quite as complex or as extreme I had hoped for from FFF, but overall, a nice Baltic Porter. It was good for the style, and I’m glad I got to try the rare rotating brew from FFF.

Poured in a tulip at the pub. Dark brown with a dark tan head. It slowly recedes with nice lacing. Smell is chocolate, coffee, malt. Flavor is strong of barley and coffee with a nice hop balance. Mouthfeel is kinda thin and the alcohol is well hidden. Very nice beer.
