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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours black with small tan head that sticks to the rim. aroma is burned malt, coffee, chocolate, sweet milk, and a little alcohol. drinks smooth and thin but has a good mouth feel. flavors of coffee, chocolate and malts are all present with a lingering coffee on the back of the tongue. i prefer black sun, but this is real decent.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a nonic pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a coffee black with a huge and creamy 3 finger dark tan head which slowly dissipates into a 1/4 finger layer on top of the beer. Excellent lacing.
Smell: Classic milk stout nose featuring lactose sugar, roasted malt and semisweet chocolate. The nose is a little weaker than I would have liked.
Taste: Medium roasted malt and milk chocolate up front followed by a touch of coffee and molasses in the middle before ending with dark chocolate and a hint of bitter hops. Aftertaste is semisweet chocolate with a touch of lactose sugar.
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with a nice amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: High drinkability. No need to consider sharing a bomber unless you’re feeling generous.
Overall: A very good milk stout overall. Give it a try if you get the chance.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I bought this at a bottle shop in munster, Indiana after drinking a great amount of be at three floyds brewpub. I was worried it might be a bit soured cause it’s a few months old and in dont know too much about milk stouts other than it has lactose added to it (message me if I’m wrong). It was great. It poured dark with hardly no head. It was sweet and creamy. It had a slight tang to it. It was sweet but balanced by the roasted malts and underlying bitterness. I loved it. Great body and mouth feel. Definitely looking forward to trying more milk stouts.

Bomber. Pours a deep brown to black with darker tan head. Aroma is combo of roast malt and burnt coffee. Taste is molasses, chocolate, roast malt, toffee and slight burnt milk sugar. A fairly complex milk stout here. Roastiness increased as it warmed. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was similar in ways to Guinness but done 1000 times better. This was on tap at the brewpub and poured a nice deep, dark brown, almost black with a thick brown head. The head dissipated after a little bit unforunately. Aroma was of vanilla, mocha, chocolate, malts and some coffee even tho it wasn’t brewed with coffee. Flavor was awesome at first but as I got towards the bottom, I kind of got annoyed with it. The flavors were the same as the aroma. Palate was creamy and thick and smooth, but same as the flavor, towards the bottom, it got annoying in some way, it was strange.

tap@FFF. pours black with a picture perfect dense white head. really tight frothy looks so good you almost don’t want to disturb it. classic stout nose of light coffee and a touch of dark fruits. very smooth silky entry. flavor is mildly sweet with an even balance provided by a nice robust flavor.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque dark brown with a light brownish tan head. Aroma is chocolate milk, coffee, roasted malts, and vanilla. Taste is bitter coffee/roasted malts up front, then a hint of chocolate before a sweet and creamy finish. The lactose really does its job in this beer. Very tasty stout with an excellent mouthfeel.
