3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from trade with StFun. Black pour, with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Great looking beer. Smell is of sweet malt, with a bit of roasted character, but light on the roasted component. Taste is sweet malt with a balance of roasted malt, but the sweet character of this beer leads the way. Itís not over done, fortunately, but that component does stand out. Full mouthfeel, but not thick or syrupy at all. Relatively little in the way of hop presence here. Finishes with the tastes lingering. A nice stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber bottle. Poured black in color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with chocolate and some light coffee. Tastes mostly of sweet milk chocolate, cream, with some light coffee. This would be a fantastic stout to drink with a chocolate cake desert. Very nice.

Pours a very dark brown in color iwth a bit of a brown head. Smell is roasty, with some coffee notes. There is a really good roasted coffee and chocolate flavor in the mouth. This is unlike any other sweet/milk stout I’ve ever had. I’m not usually into sweet/milk stouts, but this one is great. Very creamy and full on the mouthfeel. This is a very good beer, and it isn’t overhopped in the typical FFF way. Very well done FFF, very well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours jet black with big mocha head. Decent retention but no lacing. Caramel, chocolate, a little ash in the nose. Tons of sweet vanilla and milk chocolate with a bitter coffee finish. Perfect carbonation, decently full bodied. Definitely one of the best sweet stouts Iíve had. Very drinkable with very little alcohol presence.
