Pours very black with a good two fingers of khaki head. Looks very nice. The aroma has some chocolate and a tinge of shellfish. The taste is dark chocolate and coffee. There is no overwhelming bitterness or sweetness. This beer works perfectly. The flavors are very nicely balanced and I recommend this to any stout lover. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours black with brown head. Nose is roasted malts coffee and chocolate. No oyster in the aroma. Flavor maybe lends some oyster but very little just adds some complexity to the roast and sweet malt and smoke. Dry finish. fully body. bitter finish. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2012
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with almost no mead. Light sweet malty toasted flavor with a quick finish. radagast83 (8705) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Split a 22oz bottle in half. Poured a solid black color, with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, touch of sweet coffee notes, with a touch of light salt brine notes. Palate is pretty smooth, a touch of creaminess. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, interesting. bookman10 (1346) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Thick, black beer with a mid-sized head. Flavor and aroma are full of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. I’m not picking up on the oyster flavors myself, but then I’ve never eaten an oyster so don’t know what I’m looking for. But the seafoody-aspect some raters are mentioning just isn’t there for me. This tastes like a fairly decent, middle of the road stout. Nothing wrong with that.

Bottle, thanks Jason. Black with a small tan head. Nice roasty, dark chocolate, light mineral and seashell. Similar flavor. Very well balanced and quite tasty. A nice surprise. ccex (1401) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Bomber pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma has milk chocolate, molasses, and earthy roasted malts. Tastes a bit salty, with hops kicking in on the long dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Enjoyable, but I’m not quite sure what FFF and Half Acre wanted to accomplish with this. I’ve had much better from either brewery.

Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: Brownish-black pour with a medium light tan head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of earthy malt, molasses and chocolate. Light to medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, salted nuts and mild hops. The finish is semi-sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall. Beerjunkie15 (55) - Romeoville, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Big fan of this one. Pours dark black with a rich tan head. Smooth going down the whole way. Not too seafoody but it really hits at the end. Half Acre and 3 Floyds together, you can’t go wrong. Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
22oz bomber pours deep dark colored chocolate with tan looking head. The aroma is big mustiness, a touch of sour milk, earthy chocolate and highly roasted malts. The taste is just as big and roasty with dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee and then moving into earthy notes. It dries out into the finish and turns more burnt and then more coffee as the flavor begins to fade away. Tasty roasty brew here.
