Super dark brown pour.

Nose picking up on lactic sweetness, roasted malt and pipe tobacco.

Roasted malt base, mild coffee, milk chocolate, and light bitterness.

Velvety smooth-creamy. Tastes great chilled or up to room temp..

I had several of these and really love it. I felt this to be so creamy, I experimented and made a beer float with vanilla ice cream-pretty darn tasty as more of the bitterness came through. If you like Left Hand Milk Stout (and I do), I find this to be a notch better as Moloko reveals more chocolate.

22 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense dark khaki head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, toast, brown sugar, dark bread, roasted malt, oats, cream, and light coffee; slight alcohol noticed as it warms. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of roasted flavors. Taste of milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, toast, oats, coffee, cream, dark bread, earth, and light herbal spiciness. Lingering notes of milk chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, oats, coffee, cream, dark bread, and light herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance and complexity; great roasted and sweet flavor balance; and zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial milk stout. Great balance and complexity of roasted and sweet flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

From: Binny's, Glen Ellyn, IL
Date: None on bottle, purchased 10/05/2012
Glass: Tulip

Moloko is a very expressive, sweet, milk stout that has ample roated malt and associated chocolate flavors. The sweetness adds a depth of character akin to fine desserts, and the faint coffee influence performs similar feats. Excellent for fall and winter drinking, I enjoyed the beer on this cold and icy winter day. At $7.50 for 22oz of Three Floyds' beer, I consider this their most reasonable offerings. One to try if seen.

Pours a 2cm tall head of tan to burnt tan foam, composed of small bubbles, with above average retention, lasting about two minutes. The head eventually fades to a thin cap atop the body, thicker and with some large bubbles remaining around the sides. The lacing the head leaves is very good, adorning the sides of the glass with waves and columns of sticky foam; could be greater in size, but quite adequate. The beer's body is dark brown to black, opaque, with light making no changes. Carbonation is visible streaming along the sides of the glass, despite the beer's opacity.

Aroma is of roasted malt, milk chocolate, a chocolate milkshake-like sweetness, and faint coffee-with-cream. The very expressive, yet mild, sweetness, roasted malt, and chocolate are very pleasant.

A dangerous beer: rich, sweet, and chocolatey, almost candy-like, this can be very quickly enjoyed, and there is very little way to tell this is 8%. Front of palate picks up sweet cream with hints of milk chocolate. Mid-palate finds a rich assortment of coffee-with-cream sweetness, roasted malt, and milk chocolate. Back of palate picks up bitter chocolate, astringency from roasted malt, lingering chocolate milkshake sweetness, and a pleasing touch of hop bitterness. Aftertaste is of roasted malt, astringency, and possible hop bitterness.

Beer is medium-bodied, with carbonation of medium intensity. The result is a beer that is fizzy for a half-second, quickly foaming upon the palate and becoming smooth and creamy. Closes semi-dry, with substantial stickiness lingering across the palate.

2012 bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a dark brown/black with very little head. Some mahogany head on the edges of the glass is about it.

S: Sweet, smokey and coco coming through. Really surprised by the smoke aroma.

T: Sweet smooth milk chocolate, roasted malt that is heavy on the taste. Sweet smokey coco cream.

M: Thick, medium bodied with very little carbonation. Sweet finish, but not sticky/coating which I expected.

O: Pretty solid sweet stout. Really surprised by the smokeyness with this one, could almost be a smoke beer. I was expecting a southern teir type beer, and it doesn't do that. It's not the thick excellent imperial stout of ST, instead you get a smokey sweet thinner stout. Good for what it is.
