22 Oz bottle poured into a 3F pint glass
A- Pours dark brown, turns pitch black in the glass. A 2-3 finger of a tan head. Decent retention.

S- I get a lot of roasted malts on the nose. Roasted barley and maybe a little chocolate. There is also a tiny hop presences and a slight bitterness. Definitely some of the milky sweetness from the lactose.

T- A big bitterness surprisingly. There is also a decent hop flavor in this beer, there's a tiny bit of citrus and lemon tones. Malt profile is mostly roasty. A good dark grain presence. Oats and a slight chocolate. This is fairly sweet not surprisingly. The lactose is noticeable but doesn't dominate the beer like I was led to believe.

M- Drinks pretty easy for 8%. Smooth and well rounded. Its sweet. A surprisingly clean palate. Slight roasty aftertaste.

O- Really nice beer and a classic offering from 3F. One of the best Milk stouts I have had. Awesome bottle art as well.

2012 vintage poured into FFF Teku glass

Appearance: Black as can be with a billowing 2 to 2 1/2 light brown head. There is not any light coming through this beer. The head actually has a combination of tight bubbles and some large rocky bubbles that settles down slowly to a pillow on the beer. Lacing is evident. Nice looking beer.

Smell: Vanilla, roasted malt, milk chocolate dominate the nose. There is some light coffee present.

Taste: Sweet roasted malts mixed with vanilla and milk chocolate. It is a very smooth tasting brew that glides down so easily. It has a slightly bitter finish at the end that evens out the sweetness somewhat. Alcohol is pretty much non existent.

Mouthfeel: Like I said it is a very smooth easy drinking beer with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Silky smooth and not as thick as I was expecting and hoping for.

Overall: I have been on an IPA kick as of recently and I have to say this is exactly what I needed now. A perfect balance of sweetness, roasted malts and bitterness.

A-Deep black, two finger deep tan/brown head.

S-Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and oats.

T-Oats, coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, some bitterness, the mesh of flavors is great.

M-Medium bodied, more on the thin side than I expected, maybe watery?

O-Although I didn't get much in the way of lactose, the oats, coffee and chocolate work well together.

Got this beer from whole foods of all places. I had this about a year ago but could only get one bottle and I've been waiting for the release ever since this year to give it a good try.

Appearance is black, you cannot see through the beer. The head is a nice thick chocolatey foam.

Smell is of lactose, milk and chocolate. Imagine a very mild chocolate milk.

The taste and mouth feel is where it's at with this beer. A very smooth milk stout with a chewy mouth feel, I think I' in love.

Overall I highly recommend this beer. It's not too hard to find and in my opinion is one of FFF best beers.
