Bomber from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve! Pours dark brown with fairly thick but fading head. Nice dark roast malts and a touch of light roast coffee on nose. Some subtle smoke aroma on nose as it warmed. Straight forward, but very solid porter flavors. That Signature 3Floyd’s taste.
Slightly metallic after taste after it warmed. Reminiscent of a drier Alpha Klaus. Liked it and it’s held up well, but I’d say smoke ’em if ya got ’em. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from StFun (thanks a lot, Josh), pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma is full of roasted malt, a little smoke, a little anise and licorice. Flavour brings out some roasty notes, some metallic notes, a bit of smoke, and oxidation. Full-bodied, a bit sludgy, with some notes that don’t really blend well -- seems a bit off the mark for the Three Floyds typical quality. Only decent. finol (3364) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2013
Pours black with a medium height brown head.
Aroma of licorice.
Sweet drinkable brew, rosted malt with lots of vanilla and a hint of smoke. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2013
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Roast, some chocolate, smoke, licorice, and some ashiness. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Dark red, dark brown color, but clear still. Good thin light brown head. Nice spread of lace. Good earthy piney tasty malt nose. Nice dark chocolate notes in the flavor. Bigger body, good smooth but crisp lighter carbonation. Some cola. Hint of herbal / tobacco notes. Light bitterness... Some sweet... and some odd tartness, as well. Not too bad alcohol for 8.2%, just that strange sourness in the finish... Still though, a great hoppy porter. Was taken aback by how hoppy Three Floyds’ Alpha Klaus was, but I can’t help but like this particular hoppy porter... More good portery malt balance, less over-the-top hoppiness, here.

Bottle at a bottle share. Pours a rather dark brown color. Nose is very slightly sour with some floral hoppy elements to it. Taste is a tad bitter with some good roasting in there. Nice and smooth. rxeight (3043) - Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle that has been in my cupboard for over a year. I had fresh and thought it was very hoppy, almost black IPA like. Tried this bottle aged. Completly black pour. The hops are gone. Left behind a dark stale malt with a bit of licorice and tar. Tastes like an english style porter. Not a fan of these porters without any sweetness.

Very dark, creamy head. Rich aroma, smoke, liquorice. Smooth, malty. Rye bread. BoringBard (139) - NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
Black liquid. Licorice and burnt malt in the nose. Tiny offwhite head. Blanced well tasting rich stout. Low carbonated, not to viscous. Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
Oily black pour with a good creamy tan head. Aroma of licorice and roasty malts. Some smoke. Rich mouthfeel. Suprisingly balanced. After smelling it I was prepared for a licoricebomb, but the tastes blend well. Licorice, some wood, leather and roasted malts. Good indeed, though not as crazy as expected.
