3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very generous bonused bottle in trade with pnista. Thanks Phil!
Pours a dark black color with a short lived tan head. Smell is coffee and roasty malt with a very light milkiness. Taste is roasty malt and coffee and is lightly creamy, and subtley fruity. I thought the mouthfeel was a bit thin actually, but otherwise it’s a decent sweet stout, but not FFF’s best beer.

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a thin tan ring. Nose is milk chocolate and sweet coffee with hints of marzipan. Feels a bit thin with a soft tingle. Taste is iced coffee with a touch of molasses. Mild bitter citrus peel to finish.

(10/14/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Munster. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, some chocolate and some alcohol. Sweet chocolatey flavor, roasted malt, some dark fruits and some milky notes. Medium to full body.

Great pour. Lots of chocolate in the nose. I get the milk stout very strongly. Sweet lingering chocolate milk. Almost a cream taste. Very nice beer. Really good after dinner, it’s cold out, we’re hanging out

Dark, sweet, hot and then clean. Leaves your palate as if there was nothing there. Aroma is nice roastiness. First flavor is kind of sour, but quickly changes to smoky sweet. Strange strange beer. definitely has a chocolate liquer flavor to it.

Crushed with Jakebra. Very nice. Sweet nose, chocolate and some coffee. More in the flavor. Pretty creamy mouthfeel. I’d take Rogue Chocolate Stout over this any day, but it’s pretty damn good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle
It’s been a while since I’ve tried any Three Floyds beers since they are hard to come by here in Ohio. While on a trip to Kentucky I managed to locate this and don’t regret it at all. This is one of the best sweet stouts that I have tried and if it were available locally might go into my regular rotation.
Aroma / Appearance - The deep sandy head decorated a black body along with beautiful strands of creamy lacing. Hazel, black coffee, skim milk, vanilla, and a mellow hoppiness formed almost a perfect blend.
Flavor / Palate - Creamy caramel, black coffee, and plum hit the tongue on the first sip. Next comes a taste that reminds me of Starbucks’ sea salt and caramel hot chocolate. The milk stands out most in the transition; by the finish it is a shadow on the throat. I wish I had another bottle - hopefully this is a regular release in the future.

Pours a thick opaque black colour with a mahogany tint near the bottom. The head is big, tan with notes of milk, chocolate, toffee and cinnamon. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but pleasent rich flavors and nuances all throughout this brew.
