Had on tap at the brewpub last week. Just opened a bottle I got to go.

This Milk Stout is top notch. Not sure if I've had a better Milk Stout overall. Or maybe it's just hitting the spot AGAIN!

A: terrific dark brown nice tan 1" head to protect the brew beneath it

Smell: Serious Milk stout jumps up and nips your senses, malts, sweetness too

T: terrific, thick enough to keep for you to fell the weight. Milk comes out right away, chocolate, slightest hop to finish.

M: Terrific, smooth as creme and balanced

O: Got to stock up on this one again this year. Pub to go for $8, worth every penny!

Enjoyed at the Three Floyds Brewpub and served in a nonic half pint glass.

Shiny black body and served with a one finger dark tan head. Great retention and significant lacing as the head recedes. The smell of roasted malt, notes of cocoa, and a light sweetness. Opens with light roastiness, joined by a mild hint of semi-sweet chocolate and light mild malted milk ball-like sweetness that is perfectly balanced with roasted malt. Medium to full-bodied, extremely creamy and silky smooth. In my opinion, Moloko sets a standard for milk stouts. Extremely balanced between sweetness and roastiness with a velvetly smooth presence on the palate. Just remember it certainly packs a punch with an undetectable 8% abv, higher than might be expected, especially for a milk stout. Its exceptional drinkability can make Moloko deliciously dangerous.

Enjoyed at the brewery.

A: single finger tan head with nice lacing on a jet black body, no light passing through.

S: vanilla, roasted malts, coffee, and milk chocolate.

T: vanilla, cream, roasted malts up front finishing with a very well balanced sweet chocolate and coffee bitterness.

M: smooth and creamy body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: very complex and well balanced, and each flavor is well represnted. Perfect degree of sweetness. This is an excellent mill stout.

Vintage unknown...but I assume its a Summer 2012 batch. 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass.

A - Pitch black body with a nice three finger high light mocha head. This settles down to some thin edging. Moderate lacing and retention.

S - Roasted malts, milk chocolate, and vanilla. A hint of citrus hops and some lactic acid. Simple, yet smooth and inviting.

T - Roasted malts and very smooth vanilla. Decadently sweet milk chocolate with a nice roasty finish. Slightly bitter on the end. Mouth feel is light to medium and highly carbonated.

O - This beer has a flavor that is very unique to Three Floyds, which I also found (to a small degree) in Darklord. Very tasty milk stout.

Had during the 2nd Annual Redneck Racin’ & Tastin’ while tailgating at the dirt track race! Big thanks goes out to Jzmhector for this one! 2011 vintage! Served from bottle into a NoDa snifter. Poured dark brown with a minimal light tan head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, sugar, cream, and dark chocolate. The flavor was of sweet malt, milk, dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. This brew is what I think of when someone asks me to describe a good milk stout. All of the right flavors are there in all the right intensities and balances. I really wish that would have tossed something into this one to take it to the next level. Really great brew that I’m glad I got the opportunity to try. I suggest you do the same.
