Thanks to ehammond1 for sharing this one at MrVonzipper's tasting!

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark malt and herbal hops with some slight cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt and herbal and citrus zest hops. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good but hoppy porter.

deep, dark brown pour and a huge, billowing light tan head that just hung on the rail of the glass. Rich, dark aroma of wood and peat, hints of chocolate, vanilla and smoke all swirling around at once, just what I needed for lunch, lol. Warming only brings out more of the rich vanilla and toffee like notes, with touches of light pine, and then I take a sip, its over. Huge woody, oak like aroma just dominates the flavor here. Enormous showing of vanilla, hints of caramelized sugar, and a touch of smoke, just wonderful melded together and an al out assault on the senses. Rich, filling and extremely complex

While a memory of Alpha Klaus comes to mind, this American Porter carries the hoppy punch of IPAs along with the roasty chocolate character of the most robust Porters. Best of both worlds perhapse?

Opening with a very very dark brown hue, the beer is basically opaque and with a lightly tanned creamy head that amounts to about an inch and reduces by half to close the session. Frequent islands of foam provide the spotty lace along the glass as the beer falls. A very creamy and malty appearance throughout.

Very piney and sprucy to the nose, if it weren't for the Porterish look I would have assumed an IPA had fallen into the glass. Fresh cut grasses, mint, leafy, and sharply citrusy of white grapefruit pith... this beer packs a whollop of hop character. After the beer breathes a bit, the base notes of dark roast coffee, cocoa, and walnuts rise to round out the scent.

Flavors balance even further- a deeply malted matrix of burnt molasses, brown sugar, hevy toast, French press coffe/coffee grounds, bitter chocolate, and walnuts provide a lot of flavor but in a very dry-malty taste as not to introduce heavy sweetness. Layers of hops further provide the resiny taste of pine/pine sap, fresh cut grasses, vegitative leaf and bark. As the carbonation escapes, the weight of the beer provides subtle notes of smoky sweetness and heavy cream which provide a less harsh dry-roast character.

Full bodied and elevated robustness is due to a lot of malty carbonation which fills the mouth, but the leaves with a very dry roast feel that causes a mild harshness in burnt grain and wood. But as the carbonation fades, the weight of the beer reveals a creamy and smooth bit before heading toward the malty-dry and resiny bitter hop finish. Alcohol warmth evident, the hops and cream help to temper the heat.

Undoubtedly an American Porter at its best. But with the brash display of hops and the dry roast character, the beer gets away from the more refined and gentlemanly sessionability of classy English Porters.

Three Floyds Amon Amarth Ragnarok. Whatever that means. "A brew for the end of ages brewed with our friends in the band Amon Amarth. This aesir (???) porter is a robust and hearty brew brewed with local honey and small portion (sic) of smoked malt. When Heimdall sounds the gallar horn this is the brew to be hoisted by the Gods in anticipation of the coming battle."

Deep brown body, roasted tan head, a little lace-leaving.

Sweet cocoa notes hit the nose first, then vanilla and honey, with minor bitter hops rolling in after.

Taste: Full bodied, rich and robust. Roasty and bitter, with the smoked malt coming in, through and through. The hops get bigger, the malts getting fuller, the roast coming on strong, the smoke sifting along. Gets a mite creamy, while still roasty and hoppy, and remarkably easy to swallow. Mmm, mmm. good stuff.

Thanks to Mike (AgentZero) for picking up a growler of this one. Served in a Russian River tulip glass.

A - Finger-plus of dark tan foam settles to a thin cap and thicker collar, leaving behind splotchy lace. The body is a dark brown color with a hint of ruby transparency at the fringes.

S - An aggressively dry-hopped porter - very floral and slightly leafy. As it warms there is plenty of cocoa, roasted grains, and a lightly smoky and meaty character as well.

T- Taste has more smoke character with less overt hops and more charred grains. Lightly burnt toast comes to mind, along with some baker's cocoa, and a mild roasty espresso bitterness.

M - Dry, medium, roasty body, with medium-low soft carbonation. There is some residual stickiness as well as resinous hop oils. The alcohol is well-hidden, as I would have guessed closer to 6%.

D - This reminds me a little of Russian River's Porter, but with more smoke and alcohol and a bit less dry-hopping. I had a few pours from the growler, and would have had more had it been available. Hope this shows up around town on-tap.

Utterly black, inky darkness, no light reflected. Billowing, voluminous head of tan creamy foam. Sticky halo of dripping lace. Lasting head retention, nice looking lacing decorates the glass.

Piney hops, dried citrus rind, dark roast, blackened malts.

Strikes me as a black IPA, but so does Alpha Klaus. Piney bitterness that lingers, dark roast coffee and cocoa flavors. Some grapefruit bitterness in there as well, dry and bitter aftertaste, lingering pine again. Little to no sweetness. Light bodied and roasty, though the hoppy bitterness could be overbearing to the uninitiated. Perfect for a cool fall evening...

Cheers to the Madison crew!

A Missive thanks to Billakowski for this one. I'm a big fan of the band and when I saw one of my favorite breweries was doing a beer for them I wanted to get some.

This beer pours out as a nice rich and thick looking dark brown color with a tan colored head. The head doesn't really last too long and there is a faint amount of lacing on the glass. The smell of the beer was pretty good, it had some roasted notes and a little bit of a hops kick on the nose. It also smelled very earthy. The taste of the beer had some really nice levels to it. It started off with some interesting earthy roasted flavors with a light coffee/chocolate finish. The mouthfeel was really nice and thick feeling in the mouth. It also had a subtle carbonation to it also. Overall this beer was really nice, I'd love to get more if they ever make it again.

From 1028/11 notes. Thanks to nimbleprop for sharing this one.

a - Pours a pitch black color with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of smoke, roasted malts, citrus hops, chocolate, vanilla, and pine hops. Nice and smokey, but the hops come through as well.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, smokey malts, honey, piney and citrus hops. Little bit sweeter than the nose, but very nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was a pretty interested and enjoyable porter. Seemed like a cross between a smoked porter and a hoppy porter, but it worked nciely. Would have it again.

(Served in a bowtie)

A- This beer pours a dense brown body with a bubbly light tan head that last for a good bit. It is to dark to see any carbonation.

S- The clean chocolate malt aroma has a softer char quality to the finish.

T- The slight roasted mellow black malt has a note of sweetness to it and a chocolate richness that grows as the beer opens. There is a pine wood hop bite in the finish and a pleasant skunk pungency to it. There is a mineral water flavor that comes through a the beer opens. The malt also takes on a light wood and smoke note as it warms.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with no real alcohol heat noticed.

O- The smooth black malt flavors give it nice character and depth and the good crisp hop bite in the finish rounds out the flavor. Easy to drink especial for a beer that big.

Bottle from Masterski, thanks!

A: Black with a fizzy tan head.

S: Big pine and earth notes meld with light beechwood smoke and honey. Upper moderate roasted malt presence. Dark chocolate is pronounced.

M: Lower full body with upper moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice aggressively hopped robust porter. Good stuff.

Bottle from Alex. Thanks, broezowski. Consumed while listening to flamenco music.

Pours black as pitch with a thin brown crust, minimal lacing.

Quite hoppy on the nose, moreso than I was expecting. Resinous, roasty, mildly smoky - smells quite good, albeit different than what I was expecting. There isn't much sweetness here, and the smoke isn't terribly pronounced.

Like the aroma, the palate is rather dry and roasty, hoppy and bitter. The pine-like hop flavors meld pretty nicely with the charred malt and faint smoke. Honey doesn't come through much at all, though it seems to have dried the beer out a bit and lightened the body. Nice sticky bitterness in the finish, both from dark malt and hops. Surprisingly nice stuff, it would be easy to kill a pint or two of this on tap.

Thanks to Mike for this fresh growler... dark brown with a light fluffy tan head and good retention, great for a growler pour... not a fan of the nose, its really weird, burnt ash, nutts, and honey, just doesn’t work... the taste is generic smoke, chemically, lots of green hops, can tell this was dry hopped heavily... disappointing, wouldn’t have again

Amon amarth

A - pours with one finger of light tan foam on top of an opaque, black body. The head settles slowly and leaves decent lace.

S - smoky caramel, licorice, and some nutty toffee.

T - smoky malt up front with licorice, caramel, and toffee. Some nutty character appears in the middle and fades to brown sugar, molasses, and peat smoke that lingers in the finish.

M - An oily, medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish.

D - very complex and interesting, the smoke and sugar work surprisingly well together. Not something I would drink regularly, but well made.

I've really liked this beer, bought a bunch of bottles in 2011. I never reviewed it fresh, only now getting to it while opening a bottle that's about 1 year old.

It pours dark brown and opaque with a really nice foam, thick mocha-colored froth that laces in huge chunks. Gorgeous. When fresh this had a distinct hoppy note in the aroma, and while that attribute diminished with age it's still somewhat noticeable. From smell alone I prefer this with age. There's a smoked malt presence in the aroma that really comes through with the faded hops. And cocoa, this smells near perfect to me.

The hops have lived on in the flavor, giving strong citrusy counterpoint to the peat-like smokiness that is my main draw. Slightly sweet, lots of roasted character but nowhere near acrid. Again, age has been kind to this beer, I'm really happy I've kept some this long.

Overall a nearly perfect American Porter, executed just as you'd expect FFF to do it, hopped up and reminiscent of Black Sun or Alpha Klaus, albeit with its own smoked malt character. Outstanding, highly recommended.

Bottle to small snifter
22oz

Thanks to Teamizm for this want of mine.

App- A very dark brown with a nice one finger head because split four ways. The beer slides nicely and leaves a nice leg and some cling as it slides.

Smell- It starts to go wrong with the scent. Its a bit musky and damp with not a lot of balance.

Taste- Jesus H, what the hell happened to this porter. Its a whole hell of a lot like a piece of meat and beef jerky and a bit of smoke thrown in for fun. For a big want of mine this was a let down.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium carbonated. The meat flavors just kill this for me.

Drink- Damn, such a let down. Some will like this for it being malty, meaty and heavy. I dont however.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Black beer that turns red and slightly yellow on the edges when held up to the light. Nice big, khaki head that had good retention and left some pretty great lace behind.

S - Some nice smoke over dark fruits. I really enjoy the smoked aspect of this one, which cuts into the sweetness of the fruit. The porter-smell does peak through the sweetness and smoke and consists of a sufficently roasted malt and caramel backbone.

T - Taste is good and somewhat unique. It's a fairly untraditional porter, particularly with the amount of dark fruits and sweetness that are present for the style. The smoke is present, but makes way for the fruit and caramel. The finish is a slightly oily sweetness, almost a touch lactic. It's good, but I wish it were slightly less sweet and more roast/smoke forward. Tastes like they really dry-hopped the heck out of it, which some may find a bit distracting.

M - Creamy, full bodied, slightly oily and slick on the finish.

O - Pretty interesting beer, and quite good. I drank it side by side with Ham On Rye, which was my preference, but I think a lot of people would enjoy this one more. Worth trying.

22oz. bomber shared with brewslut on 8/24/11. Thanks to brewslut for acquiring this for me at the FFF brewpub.

A - Poured damn near close to black with a deep nutty coloration reminisecent of charred wood and a dense nougat-toned frothy cap that stood about a finger and a half high, then reduced to a creamy retention and thick swatches of lacing all around the glass.

S - Grassy and earthy hops combine with a tinge of smokey malt as well as a hint of peat and bitter chocolate notes. Digging deeper, I am surprised to unearth a hint of citrus rind lurking in the background amidst a backdrop of roasted coffee beans.

T - Given that this is a FFF beer, the flavor is obviously packed with copious amounts of hops - earthy, grassy, very green and leafy hops. No surprise there. The hop bitterness eventually gives way to a base of chocolate and coffee as well as a moderate smoked quality. Finishes with bitter chocolate notes, dry, leafy hop bitterness and light alcohol warmth on the palate.

M - Medium to full-bodied and robust with a smooth, silky texture and a hint of oily residue, giving the mouthfeel a slight sticky, clingy quality. Finishes with moderate bitterness on the palate.

D - Ragnarok is yet another reminder why FFF may very well be my favorite American craft brewery. This beer is as metal as it gets!

Thanks!

Dark brown with a moderately sized brown head that leaves dots of lace down the glass, though the liquid looks a bit thin.

The aroma is unique, though not magnificent. It's a fine combination of roasted and dark malts, piney and floral hops, and a bit of honey sweetness.

The flavor is a bit more successful than the aroma, and it all comes together quite nicely. This is a bit sweet for a typical porter, along with lots of roasted malt and bitter coffee flavors.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation.

A very nice, unique, drinkable stout.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of rothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, dark fruit, smoke, black licorice, honey, coffee, and a touch of lactose sweetness.

T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts with some dark fruit, some smoke, and some black licorice. Through the middle, some coffee comes through with some honey, and a bit of lactose sweetness. The finish is a mix of roasted milk chocolate malts, dark fruit, coffee, smoke, and a bit of honey.

Pours the kind of dark brown that might as well be called black. The head is a big, thick, mocha/tan mother and hangs around long enough to be enjoyed.

Hmm...do I judge aroma as a porter, or just for how much I like it? Because even though this smells nothing like any porter I've ever had, the promise of bountiful, fragrant hops is overwhelming and tantalizing. These hops are huge, and they take over any other characteristic of the beer's smell. Even the bright herbal character is likely another facet of the hops. But wait, that familiar porter roastiness pushes through this beer with just a little bit of warming, and you're getting what seems to be, in essence, one profoundly mutated beast of a porter.

So it's no surprise that the hops awaken the tongue with their bristly, bright, super-breezy, flowery, dryer-sheet cleanliness, and no surprise either that a roasty, almost burnt malt graininess follows right behind it. Not quite burnt popcorn, but something burnt that you sort of dig, where you're thinking, "I like eating carbonized things." With a twist of lime. So, the honey this was brewed with barely shows up, which is too bad. Yeah, it's here, but you really have to concentrate to find it. And it's totally drowning in hops and char. The feel of this beer is less heavy than Amon Amarth, the band, being slick, a bit airy, and buoyant, but despite all that, certainly not weak of constitution nor body. Adequate, basically.

Huge fan of metal, although never really latched onto Amon Amarth. But I'm familiar enough with the band to feel like only the biggest, thickest, most bad-ass stout would have been worthy of carrying their name. This beer, well, I suppose it's got that dark maltiness that helps it qualify, and the label is very metal, of course. Bottom line is this: because of the high quotient of both roasty/toasty maltiness and bright, green hop presence, this drinks pretty much like those new-fangled "American black ales" or "Cascadian dark ales" or "black IPAs" or "whatever they're called this week." Which is fine, because when that kind of thing is done well, it's a treat, as is this beer.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet. Thanks to finewinemike for hosting and providing this bottle.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark mahogany with a layer of tan head that fades and leaves a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: This one is sweet with dark chocolate, dark fruit, and some roastyness. There is a hop note to this as well.

Taste: This is a really hoppy porter. There is some mild roast, but it reminds me more of a black IPA than a porter. Bitter citrus peel hops overshadow the roast. Good, but really hoppy for the style.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with mild and smooth carbonation. The finish is dry.

Overall: This was different that I expected it to be. Very hoppy. Black IPA's aren't my favorite, but it wasn't bad. I don't think I'll search this one out again in the future.

Thanks to IrishColonial for sharing this one the other night. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tasting glass. It poured dark brown in color with a thin spotty tan head to it.

The aroma is very grainy and bready with some toasted malts and a little bit of caramel sweetness. It has a raw, spent grains on brew day like flavor to it.

The taste also has a big grainy and toasted malt flavor to it. I get some sweeter caramel flavors to it along with a hint of smoke. It's really grainy and bready but a little hoppiness is there as well.

The mouthfeel feels a little thin for the style with carbonation being moderate. Overall It wasn't bad but it wasn't really outstanding either. Very grainy, bready and sweet. It felt strange for the style and had definitely made me think of raw, spent grains as I was drinking it.
