A - Pours with a thick, two fingered toffee colored head and settles down leaving a blanket of thick cream across the top.

S - Dark roasted chocolate, cream, and some coffee beans.

T - Dark roasted chocolate, slightly charred coffee, cream, roasted caramel, and light char. The cream gives a nice sweet side but the roasted malt balances things out very nicely. Finishes with a dark roasted chocolate and cream coating in the mouth.

M - Creamy, heavy medium body, silky carbonation on the tongue, and sticky.

O - I usually haven't enjoyed milk stouts in the past because the ones I've had were too sweet. FFF's strikes a really nice balance to offset the sweetness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep rich brown. Almost black until held to direct light. Head is a darkish khaki. Drops to a small creamy cap and collar. No lacing to speak of.

Smell: Deeply roasted. Some cocoa. Lactose sugar in abundance, but nicely countered by the bitter roasted character. Some hints of char and old coffee. Slightly burnt with some.caramel sweetness. Milk chocolate sweetness. Some backing oats.

Taste: Nice balance of lactose sweetness. Milky chocolate with some bitter cocoa. Hints of old coffee. Deeply roasted. Some char and smoke. Slightly burnt. Sweet cocoa powder. Nice balance between the milky sweetness and bitter cocoa.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with a medium body. Moderate carbonation. Clean finish. Some creaminess.

Overall: Decent but not truly memorable.

Solidly balanced, but missing something novel. Doesn't really live up to the Three Floyds pedigree. A solid benchmark.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this beer

Appearance: Deep brown, light brown head - good size, fades to a nice cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Chocolate and lactose, as advertised - milk chocolate and some dark chocolate - roasty malts, and some sweet coffee - lactose sugar

Taste: Follows the smell, with lactose and chocolate - nicely roasted malts, adds a nice edge - dry, lightly burnt chocolate malts - lightly burnt, roasty notes go well with the lactose sugar - a little milky, creamy - on the sweet side, which I suppose is the point, and lightly oxidized

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, lightly sticky lactose aftertaste

Overall: Too tasty to inspire ultraviolence

This is a solid, solid milk stout. It's a little too sweet, but I realize that is intentional. I don't think I could drink a whole bomber of this, but I would be happy to split another bomber in the future.

Pours dark brown/black with a two finger tan head. Smell is milk chocolate, some vanilla, marshmallow, smokey. Taste follows the nose, milk chocolate, sweet milk, again some smokeyness. This style usually ends up tasting cheap but this is very good. The texture is silky smooth and its not too sweet. Definitely worth picking up, very drinkable and very enjoyable. Not too complex, just good.
