A- Pours thick and black as night. About a 1.5 finger chocolate brown head. Decent retention and good lacing. Slight hints of brown hues creep in on the edges with some light.

S- Sweet chocolate flavors dominate the nose. Slight hints of coffee roasts. Also hints of lactose sweetness mixed in with the chocolate.

T- Chocolate and coffee blend seamlessly into an almost decadently sweet, yet slightly bitter stout flavor. Darker flavors like anise and even some slight brown sugar hints also peak through.

M- Slightly overcarbonated and a tad bit thin. Really, the heavy and sweet flavor profile disguise the thin texture fairly well. Little to no alcohol heat. Quite creamy and smooth.

Overall, this is a stout from Three Floyds that gets me excited to eventually try dark lord. Pretty darn good. This is what milk/sweet stouts should model themselves after.

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.
