Nice black pour with a small amount of cream colored head. Strong aromas of coffee, bakers chocolate. Good roasted flavors of the same, along with roasted malts. Pleasant, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, but could be more full bodied. Finishes with a faint lingering sweetness, but clean. If their intention was to create a drinkable summer stout, Iíd say they accomplished that. I think this is a pretty good sweet stout, but not as good as the Bells or Rogue offerings. I think 3F might be given a bit too much credit in itís other brews based on the reputation of the Dark Lord. The 2 Iíve had of theirís(neither Dark Lord) have been a bit of a let down based on the hype for the brewer.

I’m afraid imperial stouts have spoiled me, because after drinking them regularly for years, other stouts seem weak and thin by comparison. It’s not fair, really. This beer is, by far, superior to so many others. Yet, compared to the potency of imperials, it seems almost meek in comparison. I often avoid sweet and dry stouts, knowing my own tendencies, but an offering from FFF isn’t something to be taken lightly, so this was an easy buy. It all starts off well enough, with that almost black color and dark brown head that I adore, though the head doesn’t last long enough for top marks. Nose tends to be dominated by the chocolate notes, but there’s a definitive roasty quality, as well. Flavor is well balanced between roast, chocolate, and coffee flavors, with lingering alcohol notes as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium, with some creamy and oily characteristics. As far as the style goes, this is quite good. Hell, as far as BEER goes, this is quite good. But it makes me yearn for the powerful grip of an imperial even more.

Pours a very dark brown in color iwth a bit of a brown head. Smell is roasty, with some coffee notes. There is a really good roasted coffee and chocolate flavor in the mouth. This is unlike any other sweet/milk stout I’ve ever had. I’m not usually into sweet/milk stouts, but this one is great. Very creamy and full on the mouthfeel. This is a very good beer, and it isn’t overhopped in the typical FFF way. Very well done FFF, very well done.

draft at the maproom.... close to black pour with a thin clingy tan head.... aromas of sweet roasted malt, cocoa, and chocolate. wasn;t expecting anything too complex with this one... very roasty and nutty flavors with an abundance of chocolate. sweet and full flavored. points for having a creamy and velvety mouthfeel. started off pretty nice but the sweetness eventually took over in the end.

AmEricanbrew (6177) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Black with a brown head. Aroma is rich milk chocolate with roasty malts and tobacco juice. Medium body. Decent flavor is a little thin with chocolate truffels and some blackened malt bitterness to finish. Flavor was a bit of a letdown after the great aroma.

popephred (261) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Poured from a 650 ml bottle. Pour was thick, and had an impenetrable black void of a body, topped by a rich head of light brown foam. Aroma is heady, sweet and has notes of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is sweet and body is light (not wholly surprising) Palate is rich with notes of chocolate, mocha, with a slight alcohol burn. Another nice offering from 3Fs.

Bomber courtesy of Bobby91w. Pours a motor oil black with one finger tan head that receded quickly. Nose is chocolate milk, vanilla, hints of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is pretty much the same. Thinner mouth feel than I expected. Decent brew. Thanks Bobby!

Nice toasty molasses aroma. Pitch black, motor oil like look with a gorgeous, large dark brown head. Looks beautiful in a glass. Flavor is sweet yet balanced, and actually less strong than what I was anticipating from the look of the beer. The body is a bit lighter as well. To me, the beer seems a bit deceiving in that it looks like it’s going to be thicker and darker than it actually tastes and feels.

Pours black with rich dark tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavor mostly roasted malts with tons of chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. A delicious stout that I could drink all night. They should put this stuff in 6 packs.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Pours a deep black with a nice soft tan head. Aroma is malty and milk chocolatey sweet and rich. Very nice roasted malt notes. Flavor is also sweet. The roasted malts really come alive and there is a nice bitterness in the finish that keeps it from becoming too sweet. Medium body and low carbonation. Really easy to sip on and a nice refreshing dose of malts.
