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.

Matte black with a light tan large foamy head.

Smell is chocolate, banana, and moderately roasted malt.

Taste is a little metallic, yet roasty, with cola, cocoa.

A bit boozy and rum-like at times.

I've had a few stellar Baltic Porters, and unfortunately, despite FFF's skill with dark brews, this one just does not stand out as very good.

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
