Bottle : The aroma has lots of dark chocolate with moderate roast, a hint of black licorice, and faint coffee. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head. The flavor starts with lots of chocolate. There is a hint of sour fruitiness in the background along with some black licorice. The finish has some mild roasted coffee. Medium-full voided with a soft and creamy mouthfeel.
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small to medium beige head. The aroma is fairly sweet, chocolate milk, fresh tobacco leaves, oats, and a touch of fruit. The flavor has a nice roasted quality with sweet creamy chocolate, vanilla, smooth and balanced without the annoying sourness that accompanies many sweet stouts. Very solid.

Bottle shared at the sexual chocolate gathering by stfun i think, maybe tjthresh or somebody else in the ever-so-generous indy crew. This was a nice sweet stout and one of the more balanced three floyds beers I have had. Nice and creamy with nice chocolate and mild coffee flavors. marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Sweet, milk pudding like aromas. Flavors of cappuchino, smoked malt, milk chocolate. Medium to low thickness on the palate. Pretty drinkable as a desert beer.

This super-sweet Milk Stout offers loads of vanilla, milk chocolate and coconut flavors for a creamy pint of dessert not for the faint of tongue.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam tops the brown-tinged black.
-A certain fruitiness is apparent in the nose, akin to maraschino cherries.
-The light carbonation makes the sweetness overshoot its purpose and diminishes drinkability.
-The finish does offer some earthy, almost vegetal hop notes, but the prevalent sweetness tends to wash over them pretty quickly.
Bomber pours out a dark brown with a thin, quickly receding tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma, but sruprisinlgy light on the hops for a FFF brew. Very smooth, creamy medium body with very light carbonation, and a silky mouthfeel. Sweet, light molasses character with a milk chocolate character, and little in the way of bitterness. Certainly a different type of offering from FFF. illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle from my friend Cheryl. Pours dark brown with a huge brown head. Medium to full bodied with a creamy texture- rich and smooth but not thick. Aroma is milky and roasty. Flavor of dark chocolate, milk, and mild roasted malts, countered by a moderate hoppiness and a hint of anise. I like the amount of attenuation on this one. Finish is slightly dry and acidic. Nice beer. Bottle says Milk Stout, but perhaps a bit too hoppy for that. That’s ok, the beer works for me. djtimeless (222) - Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Pours out black with brown head. Taste is sweet with some hop bite. With roasted coffe and milk chocolate notes. Very drinkable, tasty stout. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Black in color with a very small beige head. aroma is of mocha, hot chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and marshmallow. Taste is a lot like a 3 musketeers bar with chocolate, mocha and marshmallow.
