Pours dark chocolate color with minimal head. Aroma of caramel and chocolate. Bittersweet chocolate taste that fades into a light sweet taste. Medium body with a creamy texture. This is a great beer! At 8% the alcohol is hidden well. BayAreaBeers (85) - Fremont, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Pours a dark brown with a nice foamy 2 finger head. Smells of roasted malt with some coco notes. Has some Mocha and vanilla sweetness. Taste is GREAT!! Has big Coco, coffee, sweetness and nice lactose sugars. Overall a fantastic milk stout!! Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Originally reviewed: 11/18/10. 22oz bottle poured into a tall tulip glass. I love the look of this bottle. Gotta be one of my favorites from FFF. This beer pours a super thick and creamy dark black with a finger-width mocha head on top. Disappears rather quickly, but the ring on the edge leaves lots of sticky lace. The nose is full of notes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and faint espresso.
Rich creamy mouthfeel. Palate-coating. Subtle carbonation. Fantastic balance with the sweetness coming through with hints of vanilla, sweet milk chocolate, and finishes with a great nutty aftertaste. This is an absolute gulper. The alcohol, though well-hidden in the flavor reveals itself after a few gulps. Be careful: this drinks like a tall glass of chocolate milk. I loved it. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2012
22oz bottle poured in imperial pint glass. Pours dark black with a nice tan head that fades quickly leaving lots of lacing. Huge, amazingly delicious aroma of coffee, milk chocolate and malts. Taste does not disappoint, with fresh roasted coffee beans, milk chocolate, sweet cream, malts, black liquorice, caramel, and dark fruit. The sugars and lactose blend extremely well with neither overwhelming. Finishes with a strong coffee and milk chocolate aftertaste that lingers for awhile. Palate is thick and creamy, as you would expect. Carbonation is just slightly too much for my tastes, as it stings and numbs the tongue a bit. Overall this is an absolutely top notch milk stout! An absolute must for fans of this style. bobbyberbiglia (188) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2012

22 oz. bottle: pours jet black with a khaki colored head. Creamy vanilla coffee aroma. Hints of chocolate and caramelized sugar! Pretty lively on the palette for a stout. Flavor kind of reminds me of a crime brûlée. Lots of malty Carmel flavor but not cloyingly sweet. Long balanced finish. BoulderOnTap (9) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2013 does not count
Jet black and oily with a razor thin head that vanishes instantly. The aroma is oddly sugary to go along with a huge dose of coffee and a touch of pine. Citrusy hops provide the backbone to the flavor of this beer while coffee, chocolate and vanilla (in that order) dance around the palate. Silky, smooth and a little oily, this beer somehow manages to maintain a near-perfect balance. A beer this big and dark would typically be much sweeter, but the hops are just enough to provide a stellar balance. As usual, another outstanding beer from FFF.

GTM. Rich, stoutish aroma with some chocolate milk notes. Black body, fully opaque, huge light tan head. First impression is of coconut, but is more sweet milk. This brew was named after the "moloko milk" in A Clockwork Orange and quite honestly, this tastes like the sweet, alcoholic milk they referred to in the book. Outstanding. I wish they’d bottle this. Not much bite; smooth. Surprisingly high alcohol for the taste. Well done guys.
