Review taken from notes mid-September 2012.

1 pint 6 oz. brown bomber style bottle. Again great FFF artwork on the label.
Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A- Color is a soft black with some dark brown around the edges. Fluffy head that is a shade of dark khaki in color. There is some stick but not much on the glass. This stick seems to be well attached to the head of this stout. Quite nice!

S- Milk chocolate aroma and big roastiness. Roasted malt and some dark fruit sit firmly in this aroma. Lactose sugar is there

T- Dark chocolate that isn't your typical bitter dark as it has some sweetness that blends into sweet milk chocolate. Good roasted malt notes come to life with touches of citric hop presence. Dark fruit in the background with the sweet lactose milk goodness throughout this flavor.

M- Smooth and thick as it covers every inch of the mouth. The finish is stunning with light bitterness. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

O- this milk/sweet stout is crafted to perfection as most FFF brews are. They allow the craft man to experience a different version of a stout with this one. A must try for stout guys as this one is about the best you can try of this style. It's all around qualities are pure class and I'll have this one every year it's available.

This one intrigued me. From the style to the clockwork orange reference name. I had to get my hands on this one.
This one is hard to explain for me. Sweet but not over powering. Milky, but not weird or disgusting. Coffee notes, but not overdone. I have to say that this is a very balanced, wonderful beer. I enjoyed this one so much, I bought out my favorite bottle shops stock.

A - Pours a darker brown with a tan, 1 finger head.

S - Lactose sweetness, milk chocolate and toffee notes.

T - Definitely very sweet in the beginning, almost like chocolate milk. But provides a bitter chocolate, dark malts and fruits.

M - Smooth and creamy, perfect mouthfeel.

Overall - I really like this beer. Provides a sweetness without being too sweet. Delicious.

22oz, August 2012
Tired Hands wine glass

A: Pours a deep dark brown color. Not necessarily black, as I do see some light through it and reddish hues on edges. Thin layer of light tan head. Fades quickly into specs on glass. Seems to be carbonated, with some bubbles coming from bottom.

S: Really soft nose on this. Definitely pulling some of that lactic creamy milk quality. Some milk chocolate and light roast coffee notes.

T: Really nice flavor. So soft and creamy. Tip of the tongue gets that bitterness from the chocolate. Then you really get that creamy smoothing from the milk sugars. It dulls the roast grains and coffee flavors. The chocolate that remains isn't that aggressive dark cocoa, but more of a smooth milk chocolate milk character. The flaked oats probably help with that smoothness. Finish is still quite dry, with lingering flavors dancing on palate.

M: It's full bodied, but more of a medium leading to full. Carbonation helps thin it out.

O: A

pour is jet black with a caramel brown head. Nose is ashy fudge, light roast and toffee. Taste is fudge, light roast, caramel and toffee and a smidge of ashy coffee. Body is creamy, airy and easy to drink, carbonation is moderately prickly to balance with some lingering roast and bitterness in the finish.

22oz bomber poured into a FFF XV Anniversary glass

Moloko pours a great jet black color, hints of dark brown when held to the light, extremely opaque in complexion. A nice caramel colored head rests atop the beer, about three quarters of a finger high with tightly packed bubbles. The head recedes quickly leaving behind a lot of film but no lacing, a quick swirl of the glass re-summons the head fairly easily. Aroma has a nice amount of roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate and sweetness from the lactose and malts, but doesn't get sugary. Flavors are bit more complex, lots of roasted coffee, toasted malts, lactose sweetness, a touch of alcohol, brown sugar, nice bitter dark to milky chocolate with just enough milkiness to give that cream presence without being overly milky. Creamy body, carbonation is a bit high, a touch too prickly on the tongue, good milky finish.

Verdict: Solid milk stout, very true to the style, which comes as a bit of a surprise from FFF as they love to make "Not Normal" beer. Nice roast, ample sweetness, good body, easy to drink, hides the 8% very well, a must try for any stout lover.
