Pours black with brown head. Nose is roasted malts coffee and chocolate. No oyster in the aroma. Flavor maybe lends some oyster but very little just adds some complexity to the roast and sweet malt and smoke. Dry finish. fully body. bitter finish.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with almost no mead. Light sweet malty toasted flavor with a quick finish.

Split a 22oz bottle in half. Poured a solid black color, with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, touch of sweet coffee notes, with a touch of light salt brine notes. Palate is pretty smooth, a touch of creaminess. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, interesting.

Thick, black beer with a mid-sized head. Flavor and aroma are full of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Iím not picking up on the oyster flavors myself, but then Iíve never eaten an oyster so donít know what Iím looking for. But the seafoody-aspect some raters are mentioning just isnít there for me. This tastes like a fairly decent, middle of the road stout. Nothing wrong with that.

Bottle, thanks Jason. Black with a small tan head. Nice roasty, dark chocolate, light mineral and seashell. Similar flavor. Very well balanced and quite tasty. A nice surprise.

Bomber pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma has milk chocolate, molasses, and earthy roasted malts. Tastes a bit salty, with hops kicking in on the long dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Enjoyable, but Iím not quite sure what FFF and Half Acre wanted to accomplish with this. Iíve had much better from either brewery.

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: Brownish-black pour with a medium light tan head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of earthy malt, molasses and chocolate. Light to medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, salted nuts and mild hops. The finish is semi-sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Big fan of this one. Pours dark black with a rich tan head. Smooth going down the whole way. Not too seafoody but it really hits at the end. Half Acre and 3 Floyds together, you canít go wrong.

22oz bomber pours deep dark colored chocolate with tan looking head. The aroma is big mustiness, a touch of sour milk, earthy chocolate and highly roasted malts. The taste is just as big and roasty with dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee and then moving into earthy notes. It dries out into the finish and turns more burnt and then more coffee as the flavor begins to fade away. Tasty roasty brew here.

Bomber from the brewery, hand delivered by Steve - who continues to be most generous! Pours inky black with a root beer float head, leaving some lacing and consistent tiny bubbling as the glass gets emptier. Aroma has dark chocolate, molasses and an earthiness. The combination has a bit of an off-putting tang to it. Taste delivers semi-sweet chocolate, some dark fruit, roasted malts and a saltiness. Not too thick. The sweetness, bitterness and saltiness blends interestingly, and atypically for a beer. Finishes bittersweet with a salt residue, and with some length. Not sure exactly where they were aiming on this one. I liked Baume, HAís stout, quite a bit, and love Floydsí stuff, but either they or I missed a bit on this one.
