650 mL bottle with no bottle date *shakes fist at FFF*. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Black with transparency at the edges. No real head. Collar and an island of foam meandering about.

Smell - Buckets of lactose. Chocolate roasted malt. Just a touch of hop. Way too much lactose.

Taste - Lactose and lots of chocolate. Then more lactose. It's all lactose. A touch of bitter roast in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Really sweet. Not boozy. Not bitter. A little overcarbonated.

Overall - I don't love lactose stouts and this is way over the top. Too much carbonation too.

A - black with a short, off white head with decent retention

S - roasted malts, burnt sugar, faint coffee

T - roasted malts, lactose, burnt sugar, coffee, mild bitterness

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth

This has a great flavor profile, tremendous balance, and great drinkability. It's rich, smooth, and complex. This is a great milk stout that is definitely worth trying.

650mL bottle poured into a Weyerbacher tulip. Thanks Aaron.

A - Pours nearly black with a very dense chocolate milk head. Shows excellent retention and a great tiered lacing.

S - Smells sweet and roasty with essence of black coffee, hershey bars, and toasted coconut. Very pleasant aroma.

T - It starts with roasted malts and follows with a chocolate milkshake sweetness. There is a mellow nuttiness and a lot of the flavor characteristics match those of a chocolate covered malted milk ball. Just the slightest bitterness on the back end, but finishes clean.

M - Creamy mouthfeel supports the rich flavors very well. Smooth finish. Drinks more like a beer with half the alcohol.

O - Another great beer from FFF. Fantastic flavors of malt and chocolate with great balance and drinkability. The mouthfeel is damn near perfect. Exactly what I was looking for in a beer tonight. This may be the best representation of this style that I have tried. I highly recommend it.

O: This is an outstanding offering from FFF. Nothing short of amazing.

Huge thanks to IrishHockey for this brew. Poured into a snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a densely opaque black color with a 3/4 inch dark tan head that has good retention before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large, bubbly patch of surface foam. Thin but resilient lacing leaves a solid ring around the glass.

S- Lots of coffee and milk chocolate in the nose that's in the middle of the spectrum as far as roast goes. Faint alcohol aroma shows itself after some short, sharp sniffs.

T- Luscious milk chocolate and smooth dark roast character. Caramel and burnt sugar come to mind. The flavors are straightforward and blend perfectly. Light note of coffee.

M- The complexity comes in with the creamy mouthfeel that's bold and stands up with the robust body. Slick and not overly chewy

O- Just as outstanding as I was expecting. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch A Clockwork Orange to celebrate cuz that's how I do.
