Mahogany tinted deep brown/black under a wispy mocha head... promising looks. Slightly grainy aroma with a high intensity of milk chocolate. Full and heavy mouthfeel, lightly sugared, carrying big dark chocolate malts, semi-sweet with an ending of roasted, husky bitterness. ~~~~~~~~~~~ Old notebook, rating reads "@ FSRB Curse Release", sample courtesy of a fine gent who brought some growlers to share.

Bottle. Pours midnight black with a bit of head. Aroma is espresso and dark chocolate. Taste is super smooth, velvety. Lots of cocoa, milk chocolate and excellent coffee flavor throughout. I could drink this all night.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with lasting beige head that leaves no lacing, with maroon hues when backlit. Aroma is malt with subdued chocolate and roast notes with dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is same with medium body, silky carbonation, and sweet dark fruit finish.

Huhzubendah (2721) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man. The beer is dark mahogany with an inch of soapy, foamy, beige head. Aromas of chocolates, dark fruit. Sweet fruits with some cherry notes. Chocolate covered cherries and perhaps a touch of espresso. Raisins, prunes, dates, figs, etc. Perhaps a mild hop bitterness might help to balance the equation a bit. Finishes sweet. Definitely a bottle for sharing, as the sweet character becomes cloying.

Rando7 (758) - Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle pours black with firm tan head. Aroma malty with slight roast. Fairly sweet dark caramel taste with molasses, slight coffee, cocoa. Medium body. Finish slightly bitter but not overly so.

Nice Baltic Porter, more delicate than I expected given Three Floyds reputation for aggressive beers.

finol (2267) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Stockholm. A nice session imperial stout. Lots of chocolate, coffee and some coffee grounds. Quite sweet for a Baltic porter.
