4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer boasts a dark black color (it must have been the lighting at Three Floyd’s Brewpub, but I think I saw a blue tint to this beer). It is disappointing that such a brilliantly colored beer has a mere glaze of a head and leaves only a smidgen of lacing in its wake. A nice hearty combination of coffee, chocolate, and toffee rise to meet the scent glands. This moderately thick stout spreads evenly through the mouth offering a sweet coffee taste that has a hint of smoke lingering in the background. The throat is not disappointed as the sweet coffee taste lingers and lingers and lingers.

Pours a dark brown with a dense tan head. Roasted malt, cream, coffee, and baker chocolate aromas. Sweet smooth flavor with chocolate, coffee, and cream notes. Creamy mouthfeel with a rich full body.

Creamy, full-bodied stout dominated by milk chocolate, and roasted malt. Smooth finish. Very enjoyable - as were all of the beers I had @ Three Floyds.

Poured from 22 oz. Darker brown with minimal tan head. Nose of dried fruit and chocolate milk, a bit of malt. Taste was same with a hint of bitterness, medium body. Smooth and nice with good mouthfeel. Preceded Black Sun in a tasting.

Bomber- appearance dark cola, thin chocolate milk head. Nose- black licorice, vanilla, stale coffee, bakers chocolate. Taste- very sweet- milk chocolate, brownies, light roast. More one dimensional then the nose let on. Body is not that heavy and has robust carbonation. Not picking up much booze heat, fairly easy drinking although the flavour profile does get tiring.

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".

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought at Woodman’s in Madison, WI. Super dark pour with a light tan head with tons of lacing. Smell of coffee, chocolate, a tad bit of vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. Really nice and creamy stout. Three Floyds continues to impress.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first beer from the much vaunted Three Floyds!
Pours a coffee black with a thin tan head that turns into a crown with spotting.
Smells absolutely fantastic. Chocolate, oats, sweet malt, cream.
Tastes milky (not just a clever name), light chocolate malt, light sweetness in the finish.
Mouth is med/thick with low/med carbonation. Good.
Easily my favorite of this style so far. Wish I could get FFF in this area as they live up to the hype.
