The pour is right up my alley. It's dark and thick. Pitch black, syrupy only darker, with a nice light brown head up top. Moderate retention and a spotty lace left behind.
The smell is right up there too. Dark roasted malts, a slight char scent, and your nose picks up the lactose milk sugar. You can almost smell the sweet.
I can't think of anything that I'd change. It's sweet and malty up front. The roasted smokiness follows the beer as it crosses the tongue. Slight chocolate taste and some toffee or caramel.
This is top shelf also. Sweet, smokey up front, the faintest bit of bitter in the finish to balance. Extremely creamy and smooth. Not sure how you could make it better.
Overall, it's an amazing beer. It's the easiest drinking beer I can recall. Everything about it is first rate and it's got good alcohol to boot. Easily one of the 5 best beers I've had.

I am hoping to visit the 3F's brewpub soon. In the meantime, this was my induction into their brews. I purchased a 650 ml bottle from Evanston 1st Liquors and I just couldn't wait to sample, so here goes...
A: Typical color. Dark brown, almost black. Some red mahogany highlights on the edges when held against the light. The head fizzled up like a pop. It was initially a nice 2 finger coffee tan head that dissipated quite quickly into a thin ring with some spottiness on the glass. Carbonation was visible and stuck to the lower half of the glass.
S: Roasted malt, some lactose creamy sweetness and chocolate. Some pleasing sourness. As the drink progressed and warmed, more blackcurrant smell emerged and made a great addition.
T: The start was more of the sweet creaminess. It then moved into a sweet roasted malt and from there into the coffee and bitter chocolate. As the drink progresses, you get the blackcurrant making a nice appearance before you are left with the sour milky aftertaste that drives you to want to do it all over again. It seems so simple and so well done. Not overly sweet - a very good balance. You also get a nice warmth from the alcohol - the taste of it is there but you would never guess it is 7 ABV.
M: Medium bodied. Quite deceptive because it is probably a little thin for a stout and yet the creaminess makes it feel fuller. I expected more carbonation but although there seems to be medium carbonation, it is not prickly - just perfect. A nice smooth, creamy and rounded drink.
D: The lighter nature of this drink and the delicious flavor make it a delight to drink. I am biased because I love stouts but I would be happy to drink this stuff until the cows come home. I believe Michael Jackson said that Milk Stouts were "soothing and restorative". I think that this brew is a great example of that measure.

Finally getting to try this one after missing it every time its on at the brewpub. Pours into my glass a charcoal black color with dark brown edges. A half inch of light tan foam forms and falls to a ring quickly. Aromas start out with a mix of milk chocolate and lactose with a sweet tinge to it. Mild coffee meets dark malt and oats with only a touch of roast. Creamy chocolate malt comes to mind.
First sip brings a sweet dark malt upfront that brings milk chocolate and lactose with it. Hints of coffee and milk sugars midway through. There's only a mild roast here with no astringency. The oats bring a slickness on the way down. This one finishes with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Pretty solid.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and rather smooth. For a stout this has solid drinkability as it is not too heavy. Overall, it's an enjoyable milk stout, maybe just a touch too sweet for me though. A bomber would be more than enough and I shared this one with the girlfriend. Worth a try, but I wouldn't go out of my way.

Pours pitch black with two fingers of creamy brown head. Look sfanatastic.
Smell is primarily chocolate up front, with some very faint hops. Overall, smell is relatively subtle, but what is there is very nice.
Taste starts with wonderful creamy chocolate, some roasted malts, and a nice subtle hop bitterness on the finish for balance.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel. Not too heavy. Finishes very clean.
Overall, very creamy clean and smooth, with no apparent alcohol making drinkability very high.

This is one of the non-Citra hopped beers from FFF. Keep that in mind before you take a sip. This beer is the most "Normal" of the "Its Not Normal" lineup.
Smooth and delicious. You almost want to chug it. Kind of lie when you were a kid and you drank the whole damn bottle of Yahoo as soon as you took one sip.
O: Buy it if you see it.

On tap at the brewery. Milk chocolate and espresso aroma. Pitch black with fine brown head. Tastes like a chocolate malt. Very full bodied and sticky. Reminds me of a Irish Car Bomb. If you are not familiar, get a pint of stout, and drop a shot of Irish Cream in it, the chug. The difference is that I didnt chug this, and it was much more enjoyable.

Bottle shared with mntlover. Pours deep dark brown and opaque. Light brown head quickly falls into a cap with spotty lace.
Aroma is roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and a hint of vanilla.
Medium full body has a prickly carbonation that seems out of place.
Taste features lots of milk chocolate, roasty dark malts, an assertive lactic presence,, a hint of coffee, and a mild hop bite. No hint of the elevated abv.
A pretty good milk stout but the carbonation seems overdone. My least favorite of all the Three Floyds stouts but still pretty decent.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt and milk chocolate, exactly as I expected and very enjoyable.
The flavor is more of the same. There is a lot of chocolate, which is the dominant flavor. There is also some roasted malt and a little sweetness from the lactose.
Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
