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 I’m not quite sure what FFF and Half Acre wanted to accomplish with this. I’ve had much better from either brewery.

Dogbrick (7243) - 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 can’t 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, HA’s stout, quite a bit, and love Floyds’ stuff, but either they or I missed a bit on this one.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Bottle from the brewery. Second time I tried, first was at DLD, in a plastic cup not impressed, much better out of the bottle. Pitch black with a nice tan head that quickly goes away and leaves just a tiny ring around the glass. I cant quite figure out what the aroma is, has some stout and hops smells. Also has what smells like oak aged stout qualities. Taste has chocolate and coffee and nice hops to it. A bit more hops that typical for a stout, but on par with some of the other floyds stouts/porters. Without being told I might have guessed black IPA.

I love Osyters and stouts so this was a good mix. Bomber from FFF, Brown-black,and beige head. Smooth, sweet chocolate coffee aroma. Over all this was tasty and would enjoy again.CHEERS!
