2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ brewpub. Weak, weak, weak. Too sweet and milky for my taste. No coffee, toasted malt, or hoppy flavors here. Like watered-down milk w/ a dose of sugar.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting brown colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and dark brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of dark chocolate malts roasted malts and nuts . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly aftertaste. Its flavor contained slightly acidic burnt malty sweet roasted dark malty notes and was very tasty. An excellent beer that I would buy again.

Tap at 3F. Poured a small tan head that was mostly lasting, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Aroma was roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate and mimicked in the flavor. Smooth palate. Medium body. Nice brew!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 Re-rate: 10/10/8 - Ah, to try again three years after I first tried it. This one is from the bottle. Lives upu to and beyond my prior rate. Nose is milky with nice chocolate notes and smooth, minimal roasty bitterness in the nose. Taste is big and sweet, minimal roasted bitterness here either. I could drink this one all night. No tartness to be found and super smooth. Damn, this shit is classic. 8-4-9-5-17
11/20/5 - Deep brown with a creamy head. Definite roast with chocolate and coffee undertones. Quite sweet. One of my favorites that I’ve had from them. Big body. Awesome. 7-4-9-4-15

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with quickly dissipating head. This stout is very rich, The flavor is big and assertive with chocolate, coffee, and cream, finish is not quite as long as most three floyds products rendering this chewy full bodied brew very smooth and drinkable though not as thirst quenching as their pale products. Would make a great desert!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black body, tan head. Lactose and roast malt in the aroma with green viney hops. Not much sweetness. The flavor brings in a medium-strength chocolate malt and lactose sweetness along with roast and the same hops. A excellent sweet stout - sublime roast notes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a growler at the monthly meeting of the Champaign-Urbana beer club. This is my fourth experience with this beer, and each time I walk away less than impressed. Its a solid stout, but its fairly thin of palate and not very aromatic. There some milk and cream which is nice, its not over the top on the hops, but I’m left wanting more complexity and, ultimately, more flavor. What’s there is some milk chocolate and some roastedness, but I’m really pushing it to find much more. I like FFF, just not as blown away by this as others seems to be.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Semi-bitter flavor. Dark color. Smooth milky texture. Caramel covered nut flavor. Sort of a cold coffee taste but not overpowering. Some sweet hints too.
