Black-dark brown with a thin brown head. Sharp wet wood, roast pine aroma; small coffee and maybe bitter chocolate. Strong roadst meat adn wood, slight hop floral with strong bitter. again some coffee and cacao and a very this edge of sour. Continues to hold up and provides a short lived but balanced finish. mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Bottle from Lone Hill shared with DuffmanSW. Pours black with a short creamy light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy and buttery with a load of chocolate milk. Flavor is more subtle than expected. Chocolatey and smooth, easy to drink and sweet with very little bitterness. Unfortunately it does not get better as it warms, as it seems to sour. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with creamy carbonation. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a frothy mocha head that fades over a thick black body. Aroma of cocoa powder, fudge, raisins (special b malt), vanilla, lactose and leather. Taste is sweet with tons of lactose, leather, dark chocolate bar, caramelized malt, and coffee creamer. Smooth, thick mouthfeel with light carbonation. Good beer!

Darker brown color with a sweet chocolate-milky-roasty aroma. Flavor is roasty and sweet with lots of milk. Chocolate is pleasant upfront, but milkiness makes me want to run and take a shit. OK, but 3Fs has so many better porters and stouts. ilovedarkbeer (2752) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2009

Bomber! Dark stout blackish brown with thin brown foamy head. Smell was good, a bit on the sweet side. Taste is average with a bit of a hoppy ending and a heavy and dry mouthfeel. Expected a better flavor from FFF, this was not over the top for a stout. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009

Bottle : The aroma has lots of dark chocolate with moderate roast, a hint of black licorice, and faint coffee. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head. The flavor starts with lots of chocolate. There is a hint of sour fruitiness in the background along with some black licorice. The finish has some mild roasted coffee. Medium-full voided with a soft and creamy mouthfeel.
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small to medium beige head. The aroma is fairly sweet, chocolate milk, fresh tobacco leaves, oats, and a touch of fruit. The flavor has a nice roasted quality with sweet creamy chocolate, vanilla, smooth and balanced without the annoying sourness that accompanies many sweet stouts. Very solid.
