A: Pours a pitch black body with very minimal brown head. No lacing to speak of.

S: Smells a bit like burnt tar or leather. No sweetness detected, but perhaps some burnt coffee beans? Not what I would expect from a milk stout and not too excited to try it.

T: I would never guess this was a milk stout. I never knew what people were talking about when they said something tasted like leather, tar, or tobacco until I had this brew. Strong burnt flavors over power anything else. Definitely a drain pourer and I guess a bad bottle. No detectable flavors of lactose, vanilla, or anything else people described.

M: Thin body; low carbonation; watery texture.

O: I was really looking forward to having this, but it would take a lot for me to try this again. I ended up giving my glass to my husband who just ended up pouring it out. Does not taste, smell, or feel like a milk stout in any way. Very disappointed.

Solid black with a creamy head of chocolatey brown foam. A solid amount of lacing.

Smells like an imperial stout. Roasted malt with chocolate, coffee and cream notes. Actually picking up some hops in there too.

Very nice flavor. Lots of chocolate, moderately sweet, suggestions of coffee and caramel. Very noticeable hopping which is great.

Actually feels a bit thin for an eight percent brew. Very smooth however.

This is a damn fine milk stout. I would just consider this an imperial stout, but either way it is quite good. I really like a hoppy imperial stout and this one does it nicely.

Wow. This looks amazing. Its sounds pretty good, too. Pours incredibly dark, for all intents and purposes, black. Big fluffy head the color of hot chocolate foam. Light, scattered lacing.
Smell is wet cardboard, light hops and a wee hint of cocoa.
Taste is cocoa, wet cardboard, a nice sweetness, roasted malt, and later whiskey and some dark fruit. Balance is just decent to start but get better after it warms some. Flavor is better then, too.
Nicely warming, full-bodied with a nice, light effervescence.

Thanks Danny for the bottle! Poured into a FFF mug, allowed to sit out for about 15 mins before opening.

A. A very Dark brown boardering black, with a one finger tan colored head. No lacing what so ever.

S. I get some sweet oats and ripe prunes along with milk chocolate and a hint of espresso.

T. Just as the smell indicates, Nice oat and sweet prune and some raison. Then you get the chocolate espresso. I imagine it's the lactose that makes this so smooth.

M. Awesome medium full bodied, very smooth,little carb just tickles the palete.

Overall A style that I havn't had alot of. That being said this is a very good beer,once again FFF doesn't dissapoint.

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.

Love the artwork on this bottle; easily my favorite of the FFF labels.

A: Pours deep, dark black. Plenty of head, lots of lace, looking good for a milk stout.

S: Intense roasted malts flanked by sweet lactose. Reasonably pungent, but I want more!

T: Roasty malts and lactose right up front. Turns sweet very quickly as the milk sugars make their entrance. Solid malt backbone, but it's a touch too sweet. Lingering milk sugars after you swallow; I like that, though. Definitely not a stout that will appeal to everyone.

M: The oats used produce a huge, thick, airy body to deliver creamy deliciousness directly to my palate. This body should model for Perfect 10.

D: Moloko matches up well with many of the qualities I like in stouts. The 8% isn't perceptible, and I could happily session this brew. Another winner from Three Floyds; wish it were available more than once per year.
