4.24/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into wine glass.

Pours black with a very thin mocha head that disappears quickly. The aroma is mainly milk chocolate and espresso. Some slight dark fruit notes around the edge. The taste is very balanced with heaping helpings of dark chocolate and espresso much like the aroma. Add to that a nice hint of smokey goodness and very soft fig note. Very drinkable but at the same time thick. Very sticky on the palate. ABV is completely hidden. Ive never dug to deep into the milk stout world but I have to say from the milk stouts I've had this one is among the best.

On tap poured into snifter.

A: 3.75 Pours a very dark brown color with 1 finger of khaki colored head that reduces fairly quick and leaves small amounts of lacing.
S: 4.25 Sweet and roasty.
T: 4.0 I get the sweetness first, followed by the roast flavor. Leaves a lingering roasty adter taste.
M: 3.25 This is carbed a little too high for my liking of this style. When I think of milk stouts I think of smooth, low carb, and letting the flavor profile pull forward. The carb on this is too high to really enjoy what makes this beer.
O: 3.75 Milk Stout is my 2nd favorite style behind IPAs, and this one is very good. I don't find it outstanding, but I would definitely have it again.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours black with a huge mocha head that sticks around and leaves great retention and lacing. Awesome looking beer. The aromas are full of chocolate malts with hints of cream. There are some roasted malts in the mix as well. The flavors are very bold and robust. Tons of milk chocolate. There's a nice roastiness to this one. There are also expresso notes. It has a subtle sweetness, but it also has a solid bitterness. There is some milk/lactose notes that aren't overwhelming, but play well with everything else. Mouthfeel is awesome. It's pretty thick, fluffy, and creamy. It's not as thick as it gets, but it's definitely thick enough. The carbonation is moderate, but clearly there. There's no alcohol notes and it's extremely easy and fun to drink.

This is an awesome stout. It's not overly flashy or super unique, but it's just extremely well crafted. There's not much to complain about. They nailed this one. Highly recommended.

22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Assuming this is on the fresh side, since my local beer store just got these back in stock. An easy way to tell would be if Three Floyds would put bottled on date on their products. Shame on them for not doing so. Anyway, I remember loving this beer last year, so I'm excited to finally have it again!

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours an opaque oily black colored body with about two and a half fingers of luscious creamy dark chocolate mocha colored froth for a head. Looks pretty epic.

S - Aroma is of dark creamy milk chocolate, dark coffee bean roast, lactose, cream, and a kiss of vanilla.

T - Taste follows the nose: smooth silky milk chocolate, lactose, sugar, dark roasted coffee beans, and a hint of vanilla. Nothing too crazy or adventurous, but hits it's mark. Becomes even silkier and creamier as it begins to warm.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy with lots of dark roast / coffee bean bitterness lingering on the palate. Excellent carbonation.

Overall, this has got to be one of my favorite beers from Three Floyds. Well built, highly flavorful, and a well masked 8.00% abv. I would drink this stuff all year if I could. Now my only pipe dream is the hopes of getting my hands on one of the barrel aged versions.

22 oz bomber is 1-yr old and poured into a Half Acre snifter.

Black walnut body is topped by a light cream-colored head which dissipates quickly with minimal lacing.

Smell is weak but smells of subtle coffee, lactose sugar, bitter hops, vanilla, roasted malt character.

Tastes heavily of sweet lactose, with vanilla and some chocolate. Some roast character but subdued, hop taste and bitterness is subdued as well. Sweet through and through.

Mouthfeel is high on carbonation even after a year. Medium bodied with a smooth feel and minimally dry finish.

Overall it's definitely a milk stout, no mistaking the style. Probably too sweet for my everyday consumption but I can see why it makes a good base beer. Give it a shot if you're able.
