3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Binny’s (Orland Park, IL) shared with a friend. Poured the darkest hue I have ever seen, allowing no light through, an opaque black that didn’t even show light when held directly up to light. Aromas are coffee and some dark chocolate, usual for the style. Initial is a little roasted up front, moving into the coffee well and then finishing up with a touch of the chocolate in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth, very drinkable, but a little thinner than I expected. Not FFF’s typical "Hop and Hope" mantra, but still pretty good.

Bottle courtesy of sebletitje. Thanks Sea Bass. Pours black with a one finger tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is full on coffee, sweet lactose, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium full mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. A damn fine brew
