4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A seriously delicious brew, and one that gets better as the bottle warms. Not what I was expected from FFF at all. Unlike most of their offerings, this one is totally subtle. Chilled, it plays like a weak milk stout, but as it warms, it becomes much more like drinking chocolate milk. Aroma and flavor are dominated by the lactose, with notes of hops in each as well. Roasted barley, hazelnut, and coffee also make themselves known in the flavor, to varying degrees as the brew warms. Nice notes of candy sugar as well. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
