Bottle. Black with dense lasting brown head and lace. Roasted espresso and chocolate milk earthy aroma. Roasted coffee chocolate mildly tart plummy sweetness. Woody roasted coffee earthy bitterness. Medium-light body but not watery, makes it all-too quaffable. Excellent.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - thanks Felipe! Pours opaque black with a large creamy brown head that dissipates quite slowly with nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is roasty, lactose, cigarettes, coffee. Flavor is the same, roasty lightly sweet and lightly bitter with light astringence present. Full body, silky mouthfeel from the lactose. Nice beer, I enjoyed this. ABV really well masked - I did not notice until right now that it was actually 8%

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a bomber purchased at Three Floyds. It poured dark brown/black with the darkest brown, frothy head I’ve seen. Rich aroma of malt and coco. "It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van" (and a bottle of Moloko Plus). "Oh my brothers, have another glass, Moloko plus vellocet, drencrom, synthemesc, I viddy with my glazys the ultra-violence ball, Bloody chained faces, a real horrorshow".

"We were all feeling a bit shagged and..." To quote its namesake. Deeeelicious! Had it out of a bomber, pours a dark coffee like hue with a dark beige heavy head, and fishnet lacing. Taste is as smooth as silk, with a sweet malt kicker!

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Jet black and oily with a razor thin head that vanishes instantly. The aroma is oddly sugary to go along with a huge dose of coffee and a touch of pine. Citrusy hops provide the backbone to the flavor of this beer while coffee, chocolate and vanilla (in that order) dance around the palate. Silky, smooth and a little oily, this beer somehow manages to maintain a near-perfect balance. A beer this big and dark would typically be much sweeter, but the hops are just enough to provide a stellar balance. As usual, another outstanding beer from FFF.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle courtesy of StFun. Thanks. Pours black with a small beige head that soon fades away to a fine film. The aroma exhibits chocolates and a touch of burnt grains. The taste, like the aroma, features chocolates, well roasted grains, vanilla, cream and perhaps a hint of coffee. The palate was full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished long and a bit sweet. Overall: Very tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black with a finger of creamy, chocolate head. Very thick. Aroma is a huge mix. A lot of vanilla and sweet lactose with some roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. The mouth is very similar. Creamy chocolate with a lot of mellow roast and caramel. The lactose sugars are present but blend with the roast to give a very coffee like flavor. Pretty thick and viscous on the tongue. A really good beer.
