Poured from bomber to pint glass.
A: Pours jet black, absolutely no head. A little bit off the bat with a vigorous pour, but leaves just fast with evidence of even being there.
S: Bitter coffee and mocha. Slight bitter chocolates and roasted malts. Nothing really else pops out at me.
T: Feels very watered down. The flavors of coffee take a backseat to nothing unfortunately. It’s not terrible, but nothing bring me back wanting more. I wish this came in a 12 oz. because I hate drain pouring, but this guy is not something I’d want to have again.
M: Medium/heavy bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth, but falls flat on the palate and doesn’t really leave anything worth mentioning.
O: I’m going to hope that this is just a freshness issue and not a beer issue because I love Three Floyd’s and this really fell short. I’m looking forward to trying this guy on tap or when I know it should be fresh.
Serving type: bottle

Sweet malt, some chocolate, vanilla, some bitterness. A little milky, roast. Smooth, cool, milk like consistency. Medium body. Chocolate, roast, oatmeal. Slight bitter finish. KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 12/23/2010. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.
Moloko has a mahogany walnut color with tints of sienna at the edge of the glass. A small tan head rests precariously on top of the beer, winding down to a thin ring. A little bit of lace forms and disappears with the swirl of the my glass.
The aroma is full of milk chocolate, roasted barley, a little bit of espresso, and a touch of booze. Overall the aroma is a little bit on the light side.
Roasted malt and espresso start strong and transition to a milk chocolate flavor. This is actually somewhat mellow, with more focus on the milk aspect and not a ton of hops blowing me away. A little alcohol bites me in the middle. Pine and just a touch of grapefruit hops just before the finish turns sweet again.
Creamy, with tight, medium carbonation. Lightly sticky and a lighter body than I would have guessed.
Overall pretty well-rounded, but it is lacking anything that really puts it over the top. 48FanInCali (857) - California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Poured from a 22. Dark with a nice head. Nose mostly of chocolate and malt. Taste was chocolate, coffee, vanilla and malty goodness. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a tasty FFF offering. richlikebeer (839) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2005
handbottled bomber courtesy of Duane, poured a solid black with a thin cream colored lacing. aromas of burnt coffee, chocolate, molasses and steamed milk, almost creating an expresso/cappucino smell. amazingly smooth chocolate flavor, lactose at the end, burnt coffee and some sweet vanilla in the middle. velvety smooth body, slides down your throat. a little bit acetic tail, but this could be a result of the heat during transport...either way, a very nice sweet stout. thanks alot duane

Thick black pour with thin head, beautiful looking brew. Smells roasty and chocolatey. Sweet milk chocolate taste, rich flavor, quite tasty. Super smooth. RickTStiles (827) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2011
pours black with a thin off white head an some spotty lacing. aroma is sweet with note of chocolate and raspberry. body is syrupy with low carbonation. taste is rich and sweet but well balanced. finish is sweet with sugar remaining on the lips. This is a lovely, sweet and complex beer. DWestrick (817) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2015
22oz bottle. An insanely easy to drink milk stout - pretty perfect in every way. perfect for a chilly fall evening KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown almost black in color with a very large (on the heavy side of 3 fingers) creamy medium brown head that lasted throughout and produced some really excellent lacing.
The aroma was wonderfully heavy of some burnt dark malts and a strong leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, molasses and a hint of dark fruit.
The taste was moderately sweet with a hint of dark chocolate and molasses at first then it became extremely malty and moderately bitter with a nice creamy coffee finish. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow letting one relish the bitter chocolate coffee flavor.
Mouthfeel was robustly full in body and smooth and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall an exquisite Stout with the flavors contributing to each in such a way as to produce a truly delightful drinking experience.
