Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
In short: An overly sweet and very messy dark beer of some kind. No thanks.trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2009
How: Bottles 12oz. Sherbrooke dinner-and-beer with Montreal crew. Consumed fresh soon after purchase
The look: Almost black body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: A whole lot of sweetness, way too much vanilla, annoying fruit juice concentrate (grapes mainly), a coconut touch, very lactic/milky, a lot of molasses and some toffee. An overall sensation of a failed experiment, this is not-cohesive, very messy. I don’t know what Three Floyds were aiming for with this thing. But eh, if you are to make a beer inspired by A Clockwork Orange, may as well make it a totally fucked-up one.
Thanks to ajm for the bottle! Only the second sweet stout I’ve rated. Pours a glossy black with a very thin, tan head. Thick molasses dominates the nose, with some tootsie-roll chocolate, dulce de leche (that’s appropriate)... really good, creamy chocolate milk. This is interesting stuff. Really not sure what I think of it. I’m so used to Impys that it seems a bit dilute, but it’s certainly flavorful. The mouthfeel is silky smooth, but lacks the carbonation to keep it from feeling flat. Just a bit sour... but it’s the odd "this is a bit off" sour, not a crisp, tart sour. I realize it’s just lactose sugars, but I can’t get my mind off the idea that there’s been milk sitting in here for months, and it’s sort of weirding me out. Crazy brew to try, and I’ll certainly give anything from FFF a shot - but I probably wouldn’t seek out this style again. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
Black in colour with a thin tan head and very light lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty, creamy, some dark chocolate and some sweetness. The flavour is roasty, some mild chocolate, quite creamy with a moderate sweetness. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long and creamy with a moderate bitterness.danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2009
The milk really makes this one really creamy. Really enjoyable.
650ml bottle from Sahara Mart in Bloomington, Indiana.
Opened on November 16, 2008.
Bottle from 2008.
Bottle courtesy of Awiseman01. Pours a chocolaty brown with a diapering oak brown head. Noise is chocolate milk with hints of oak and coconut. Flavors are a mild dark chocolate, nice maltiness, slight oak hints, and a milk sugar taste late in the sip. Mouth is creamy with a slight dryness to the finish. One of my favorite sweet stouts.

Black-dark brown with a thin brown head. Sharp wet wood, roast pine aroma; small coffee and maybe bitter chocolate. Strong roadst meat adn wood, slight hop floral with strong bitter. again some coffee and cacao and a very this edge of sour. Continues to hold up and provides a short lived but balanced finish.

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. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours with a frothy mocha head that fades over a thick black body. Aroma of cocoa powder, fudge, raisins (special b malt), vanilla, lactose and leather. Taste is sweet with tons of lactose, leather, dark chocolate bar, caramelized malt, and coffee creamer. Smooth, thick mouthfeel with light carbonation. Good beer!

Darker brown color with a sweet chocolate-milky-roasty aroma. Flavor is roasty and sweet with lots of milk. Chocolate is pleasant upfront, but milkiness makes me want to run and take a shit. OK, but 3Fs has so many better porters and stouts. ilovedarkbeer (2741) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Pours a deep coffee black color with a small light brown bubbly head. Nose is milk chocolate, brownie, milk, little bit of roasted malt faint raisin. Taste is chocolate (darker) Creamy medium mouthfeel. little bit of dust, and leather. Over all pretty good. Kind of acidic too. puggy211 (712) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bomber! Dark stout blackish brown with thin brown foamy head. Smell was good, a bit on the sweet side. Taste is average with a bit of a hoppy ending and a heavy and dry mouthfeel. Expected a better flavor from FFF, this was not over the top for a stout.
