3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber not much aroma but a very decent stout pour with a tan head on a dark brown body. Very sweet taste as the name implies and very nice after taste on the palate. Heavy on the malts and light on the hops. the 8%ABV is hidden with the sweet malts. Lots of flavor bit of resin taste, chocolate, yes and of course a hint of milk. Iím a fan of 3 floyds and like their work.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep dark brown pour with some foamy tan head - minimal retention and lacing.
Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is sweet, but not overly so. Chocolate and milky smooth with a nice sweet malty finish. Medium bodied, but still nice and chewy, Delicious beer - easily the best milk stout Iíve ever had. I can drink this anytime. Superb!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
dark pour - nice aroma sweet milk chocolate aroma- very smooth. I really enjoyed this.. as with all mocha/vanilla stouts I feel it is missing something for me. I really like the flavor and will enjoy again. I am still partial to the extra bite in the IRS brews.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was a solid beer, and quite alcoholic for a milk stout, although to be honest I was expecting something a little more exceptional from 3 Floyds. Pours a very dark brown. Very strong roasted malts, coffee, sweet chocolate, plenty of lactose.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a velvety, deep, dark brown that is translucent around the edges with almost no head. Nose is hops, bourbon, and a bit of vanilla. Very sweet flavor with a great mesh of hops and malt, notes of vanilla come through. A very, very easy drinking milk stout. Probably the best Iíve ever had of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep black with a moderate brown head. Aroma is slightly sweet with chocolate and toasted malts. Flavor is nicely sweet, but not overpowering, with a toasty finish. Palate is much lighter than I expected. More of a drinking beer than a sipping beer, which is very nice, but quite different from what I expected.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle poured in imperial pint glass. Pours dark black with a nice tan head that fades quickly leaving lots of lacing. Huge, amazingly delicious aroma of coffee, milk chocolate and malts. Taste does not disappoint, with fresh roasted coffee beans, milk chocolate, sweet cream, malts, black liquorice, caramel, and dark fruit. The sugars and lactose blend extremely well with neither overwhelming. Finishes with a strong coffee and milk chocolate aftertaste that lingers for awhile. Palate is thick and creamy, as you would expect. Carbonation is just slightly too much for my tastes, as it stings and numbs the tongue a bit. Overall this is an absolutely top notch milk stout! An absolute must for fans of this style.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice toasty molasses aroma. Pitch black, motor oil like look with a gorgeous, large dark brown head. Looks beautiful in a glass. Flavor is sweet yet balanced, and actually less strong than what I was anticipating from the look of the beer. The body is a bit lighter as well. To me, the beer seems a bit deceiving in that it looks like it’s going to be thicker and darker than it actually tastes and feels.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at FFF. Poured black with a creamy tan head. Aroma was absolutely killer vanilla and mocha. Taste was reminiscent of a latte, and had a sweet, but not cloying finish. The only knock against the beer was that the texture wasn’t as creamy as one would hope. Still, incredibly tasty and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice dark color with a dark tan color that lasts a decent while. Aroma is nice and smooth of sweet milk, toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is initially very bitter of coffee, chocolate and milk but smooths out into a nice bittersweet flavor that lasts a good while. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is avareage. This is a delicious beer I wouldnít hesitate to have again.
