3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted from a bomber purchased at Three Floyds. It poured dark brown/black with the darkest brown, frothy head Iíve 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".

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought at Woodmanís 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.

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 youíre feeling generous.
Overall: A very good milk stout overall. Give it a try if you get the chance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Milk Milk Milk. Specifically, Milk, chocolate, caramel. My notes says I was eating with some Buffalo wings. Makes sense. Have not had many milk stouts/sweet stouts, so I don;t have much to compare to.
