Three Floyds Brewing Co Topless Wytch

From 3/18/14 tasting notes... Enjoyed on tap at Champps Americana Brookfield, WI. This was served in a 12 oz stemmed tulip. Served chilled...

A) This is a dense looking black brew with a full finger of dark head, which settled quickly to a collar. Not much lacing to report.

S) Dark roast and dark fruits. There is a light amount of cocoa powder, a bit of oak and a little smoke.

T) Follows the nose... The flavor is a tad more chocolatey than the aroma. Light smoke, roast, a pleasant sweetness. Not much hops. The alcohol is well hidden.

M) Pretty rich... Full bodied with light carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.

O) People might expect this to be a hopped up brew because it's from Three Floyds. It seems spot on for a Baltic Porter to me, and is quite enjoyable. Reminded me a of Grande Cuvée Porter Baltique - Les Trois Mousquetaires. Glad to recommend this beer.

(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.
