Pours jet black with big mocha head. Decent retention but no lacing. Caramel, chocolate, a little ash in the nose. Tons of sweet vanilla and milk chocolate with a bitter coffee finish. Perfect carbonation, decently full bodied. Definitely one of the best sweet stouts I’ve had. Very drinkable with very little alcohol presence.

I’m a huge fan of stouts, milk stouts, imperial stouts, java stouts, etc. This was by far the worst stout that has EVER crossed my lips! People rate this high just because it’s from 3 floyds. The MOST over rated brewery in the world! Bell’s double cream stout is a WAY better example of this style.

Bottle, thnx to bytemesis. Pours a very dark, almost black beer with a very small beige head on top. Aroma has loads of coffee, malts, slight dark fruits and a hint of lactose in the back. Flavor is moderately sweet, with caramel and molasses upfront and some coffee with milk in the back. Roasty notes in there all the way, full bodied mouthfeel and well rounded flavors. Aftertaste is long and sweet, low level of carbonation. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle from my friend kaiser - thanks!
Aroma - Chocolate and boozy smelling.
Appearance - Pitch black, small head that goes away quickly.
Taste - Considering the boozy aroma, it is a pretty smooth beer. Some lingering burn in the after taste.
Palate - Very fizzy and lively.
Overall - Good sweet stout - perhaps my first sweet stout, even though it is labeled as a milk stout.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with a beige head. Incredible aroma. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice malt backbone. Lot of chocolate taste with hint of coffee. Vanilla, caramel and a little dark fruits. Excellent sweet stout. Right up there with the best sweet stouts I've had.
