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.

Bottled, shared with Narnad. Black with a large, light brown head that is quickly diminishing. Coffee nose with milk chocolate. Dark chocolate flavor, mild-to-moderate roast. Condensed milk notes follow after the cocoa. Very fine carbonation. Pretty darn tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty neat looking bottle graphics. Very dark black pour with a thick tan head and fine carbonation. Chocolate is pretty dominate in this aroma with a dark roasted coffee note hiding in there, burnt notes and an overall sweet profile. A strong chocolate flavor starts off the tasting, moves into a very unique sweet bite (lactose?), a coffee/burnt malt middle with a light caramel ending. Brew has a moderate density, is very smooth and rich with feeling. Overall a good beer and one that really hit the spot well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours an opaque black color with about an inch of brown head. Roasted malts, coffee and some vanilla in the nose. A sweet, lactic character is pretty strong in the taste. Some chocolate, caramel and almond as well. Creamy mouthfeel with a perfect carbonation level. This beer seemed sweet even for a sweet stout. Nevertheless, I did enjoy trying this brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a trade with Erik in Indiana. This poured from the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown with a small head and very robust lacing rings considering how small the head was. Nose of chocolate and coffee, but mild with no burnt notes. Very rich and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is mild and very pleasant. Amazingly easy to drink. Outstanding. I liked this a lot.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Perfect name - I love it, probably because I love the movie. Deep dark brown coloured brown, still clear at the bottoms, with a thinnish and fast-dying brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, lactic milk, sourness, nuts and some toffee. Full-bodied; Strong sweet buttermilk flavour with some coffee, nuts and a dose of cherries within this one. Aftertaste shows a lot of milk, coffee and some sweetness here. Overall, a good and strong beer - showing full-bodied, sour twangs and a bunch of alcoholic sweetness. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from West LakeView Liquors in Chicago, Illinois on 15-December-2008, sampled at home in Washington on 15-June-2009.
