EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Bomber from the first batch offered in bottles (and with a high fill line to boot!). Hard roast and sweet lactose tones, but dry chocolate horizons. Pitch pour with a creamy light brown head. Crisp and creamy start, gummy berry roast and dry cocoa with light sweetness and faint ending bitterness, much more balanced than expected. "Baltic" notes, as advertised, are showing in that nice berriness. Smarties dust! 7% alcohol is not to be found, perhaps 5%. Light body, creamy not watery. Moderately interesting and well above average for style. For once, a FFF offering without a snowplow hop profile, I like!!

marcus (6421) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
On tap at the brewery. This dark brown ale poured with a decent tan head. There is a very creamy chocolate flavor with almost no hoppiness. Goes quite well with chocolate cake.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Pours black with a moderate brown head. Aroma is coffee like and chocolatey. Flavor is almost winey with a strong chocolate with very little carbonation. Very oily mouth feel. Very good.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep black with a moderate brown head. Aroma is slightly sweet with chocolate and toasted malts. Flavor is nicely sweet, but not overpowering, with a toasty finish. Palate is much lighter than I expected. More of a drinking beer than a sipping beer, which is very nice, but quite different from what I expected.

0.65l - Nose is heavenly, chocolate and roasted coffee flavors. Tiny thin head over black, black liquid. Palate was like flat cola, a little sweet and flavorful. Nice

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Solid aroma of chocolate. Great balance from FFF, a not a lot of hops. Great creamy, smooth flavor, lots of good chocolate and coffee flavor. I hope I can get this all year around, enjoyable stout.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Pours a thicker black with a nice creamy frothy tan/gray head. Great aroma of cocoa powder, butter, a little roast and a nice amount of hops. First taste is very milky and buttery, oatmeal? Wow that’s awesome... so flavorful and drinkable. A great stout that doesn’t allow the roast, coffee or dark chocolate flavors to completely dominate... imagine that. The sweet creamy milkiness is forefront and the roast and chocolate play assisting roles, fantastic balance from FFF. Perfect body, creamy and full, yet not heavy with just the right amount of light sizzling carbonation. soooooo buttery!

hombrepalo (1823) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bomber! Dark stout blackish brown with thin brown foamy head. Smell was good, a bit on the sweet side. Taste is average with a bit of a hoppy ending and a heavy and dry mouthfeel. Expected a better flavor from FFF, this was not over the top for a stout.

ultra black and non existant head. aroma is of subtle sweetness immediately tempered with wonderful bitterness. a nice mouthfeel is expected from any kind of porter or stout, but this is the defintion of silk. it meets every curvature and crevice of your mouth and tounge and the bitterness lingers after its gone. definatley not a dry end, but a plesant one. this is a great style for FFF because its one that really benefits from the overhopping they are known for. like their black sun, you find the best examples of balance in FFF beers when they tamper with the roasted malts. the lactose pushes this over the edge, beating out in my mind alot of their other similar offerings.
