Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Solid aroma of chocolate. Great balance from FFF, a not a lot of hops. Great creamy, smooth flavor, lots of good chocolate and coffee flavor. I hope I can get this all year around, enjoyable stout.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a thicker black with a nice creamy frothy tan/gray head. Great aroma of cocoa powder, butter, a little roast and a nice amount of hops. First taste is very milky and buttery, oatmeal? Wow that’s awesome... so flavorful and drinkable. A great stout that doesn’t allow the roast, coffee or dark chocolate flavors to completely dominate... imagine that. The sweet creamy milkiness is forefront and the roast and chocolate play assisting roles, fantastic balance from FFF. Perfect body, creamy and full, yet not heavy with just the right amount of light sizzling carbonation. soooooo buttery!

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.

ultra black and non existant head. aroma is of subtle sweetness immediately tempered with wonderful bitterness. a nice mouthfeel is expected from any kind of porter or stout, but this is the defintion of silk. it meets every curvature and crevice of your mouth and tounge and the bitterness lingers after its gone. definatley not a dry end, but a plesant one. this is a great style for FFF because its one that really benefits from the overhopping they are known for. like their black sun, you find the best examples of balance in FFF beers when they tamper with the roasted malts. the lactose pushes this over the edge, beating out in my mind alot of their other similar offerings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 22oz bottle. The last time I had this was the first day the FFF brewpub opened and I recalled liking it a lot. I just missed this on cask at the maproom so I thought Iíd pay the ridiculous amount of $8 for a milk stout. I came home and had the place to myself a bit and thought itíd been a while since Iíve seen "A Clockwork Orange" and this was the geekiest time as ever. So I opened this bottled labeled "Moloko Milk Stout" with probably my favorite FFF label to get me sharp and ready for the old ultra-violence. This poured rather heavy, black with tan head that didnít last long yet eventually formed again nicely. I thought it was a bit strange that no one at the Kovoko milk bar was drinking anything this dark but maybe this was a new brand or something, it smelled of lactose, chocolate, roast, and vanilla. tasted like sweet chocolate, lactose, mild roast, caramel, with a semi-sweet finish. a pretty heavy body with silky mouth feel. even though i felt a triple IPA would have worked a bit better with the film but hell i canít complain this was Moloko milk (stout)! 3.6.
8/29/09, a full pour at the brewpub listed at 8%abv. this was very slick and sweet, cloyingly slick and sweet. really not very good at all unless you like slick and sweet. 3.2.

I am not sure if i understand the mild stout appeal. It was thinner than i expected, and the bubbles on top looked a little weird. Kind of like milk in fact. Too sweet for my taste. Very dairy-y if that can even be said. Might work as a stout float situation with ice cream, but other than that i dont have much use for this. Pains me to say that about my favorite brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a brown head that dissapears rather quickly. Aroma is is malts, chocolate, and dairy creamer. Taste is all the flavors of the aroma with a very creamy mouthfeel. The more you drink of it, the more of a roasted coffee flavor, with moderate bitterness lingers on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured very dark with little head and virtually no lacing. Very little carbonation and hit fairly thin moutfhfeel for a stout. Pretty sweet but overall unintersting to me. With so many good things on tap at 3F, I moved on quickly.
