ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2014
22oz bomber poured into a stemmed snifter. A combination of vanilla extract, milk chocolate, and cookie dough bring to mind chocolate chip cookies on the nose. A deeper smell brings forth a the lactose sugar, a little bit of nuttiness (pecans?), and some berry scents (blackberry and raspberry come to mind). Thereís also some distinct molasses or brown sugar aromas that stand aside from the cookie combination previously noted. It has a soapy / watery-jello tan head which recedes down after not too long leaving a couple of puffs atop a deep, dark, opaque brown. It doesnít really leave any lacing to speak of. Sweet malt is the primary taste - both roasted and creamy malts - but itís mellow and pleasant. Initially, when itís still a bit cool, roasted nut and woody notes hit the tongue first, but as it warms up, those flavors fade and itís replaced with a smooth, creamy caramel and milk chocolate (kinda like a Rolo), and finishes with a pinch of cinnamon spice, maybe some molasses, and some brown sugar. The aftertaste left behind is primarily a milk chocolate mouth coat with some roasted pecan hints which sticks around for awhile.

22oz bomber.
Pours a murky dark brown-black with pillowy tan head that quickly vanishes without leaving so much as a foam ring. Aroma is nothing too special, some roasty malt grain and a touch of raisin, maybe a hint of molasses. Flavor is much stronger than the aroma lets on, with a dried dark cherry lead-in thatís followed by milk sweetness with a touch of that sour flavor that comes on when milk gets warm. Then the crunchy toasted grain comes and washes it all away, leaving a thick coating on the palate on its way to leaving a grainy-dry and gently milk-sour aftertaste. I was skeptical at first but a couple sips made me a believer.

jlruthven (562) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle. Not-impenetrable black, with brown highlights. Small, fizzy brown head. Nose is STRONG coffee, slight vanilla and chocolate. "Smells" sweet. More coffee and chocolate on the tongue, with the requisite smooth sweetness expected of a milk stout. Soft mouthfeel, slightly watery. Lively carbonation. Canít taste a bit of the booze. Not my favorite 3F brew, but very solid.

Pours black with a moderate brown head. Aroma is coffee like and chocolatey. Flavor is almost winey with a strong chocolate with very little carbonation. Very oily mouth feel. Very good.

Brand new bottle right from the brewery, they donít even advertise that they have this yet hahaha!! Pours dark brown to black with a luxurious dark brown 1 finger head. Aroma is very sweet with notes of oatmeal, milk chocolate, a hint of lightly roasted coffee, and dark dried fruit. Taste is sweet chocolate milk with earthy roast and sweet oatmeal. Body is medium, which is light for the style and for the amount of alcohol--- I think the reason for this is that this is a "Baltic" stout which means it was brewed with lager yeast...interesting. Soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a lush sweet finish. As far as Floyds beer goes, I feel like this vintage (2011) is more poorly executed than in previous years. Also, they upped the price from $8 per 22oz to $10, which prompted me to call bullshit these fools!

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckiní hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Dark brown pour. Some roasted coffee in nose along with some sugars. Nice roasted character, creamy mouthfeel, tastes like lactose. Definitely creamy is what I took away from it.

Bottle from Lone Hill shared with DuffmanSW. Pours black with a short creamy light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grainy and buttery with a load of chocolate milk. Flavor is more subtle than expected. Chocolatey and smooth, easy to drink and sweet with very little bitterness. Unfortunately it does not get better as it warms, as it seems to sour. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with creamy carbonation.
