[Bottle] Pours an opaque black color with about an inch of brown head. Roasted malts, coffee and some vanilla in the nose. A sweet, lactic character is pretty strong in the taste. Some chocolate, caramel and almond as well. Creamy mouthfeel with a perfect carbonation level. This beer seemed sweet even for a sweet stout. Nevertheless, I did enjoy trying this brew.

From a trade with Erik in Indiana. This poured from the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown with a small head and very robust lacing rings considering how small the head was. Nose of chocolate and coffee, but mild with no burnt notes. Very rich and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is mild and very pleasant. Amazingly easy to drink. Outstanding. I liked this a lot.

Perfect name - I love it, probably because I love the movie. Deep dark brown coloured brown, still clear at the bottoms, with a thinnish and fast-dying brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, lactic milk, sourness, nuts and some toffee. Full-bodied; Strong sweet buttermilk flavour with some coffee, nuts and a dose of cherries within this one. Aftertaste shows a lot of milk, coffee and some sweetness here. Overall, a good and strong beer - showing full-bodied, sour twangs and a bunch of alcoholic sweetness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from West LakeView Liquors in Chicago, Illinois on 15-December-2008, sampled at home in Washington on 15-June-2009.

pours black with small tan head that sticks to the rim. aroma is burned malt, coffee, chocolate, sweet milk, and a little alcohol. drinks smooth and thin but has a good mouth feel. flavors of coffee, chocolate and malts are all present with a lingering coffee on the back of the tongue. i prefer black sun, but this is real decent.

Bottle: Pours a pitch black with a shimmering tan head. Nose reminds very much of chocolate-laden vietnamese coffee...very sweet and lactic based. Body has nice carbonation, perfect for the style and still retains some silkiness. Quite sweet to start but yields to some roasty malt notes with a bit of chocolate. Good stout.

Shared by BDR. I usually donít like milk stouts but Three Floyds has done a great job with this one. Black, and an exceptionally smooth, creamy palate, but still an unusually thick beer. Roasted malt and some sugar, a little coffee, and milk, almost like a latte. What a lactose stout should be.
