Pours dark solid black with a half finger tan head that retains nicely.

There are some nice aroma coming off of this. Roasted toffee like malt is forward along with a deep creamy malt sweetness to back it up.

Taste is awesome. Rich milk chocolate like malt is foreword. There is a mild sweetness that compliments the nice roasted malt that comes in on the back end nicely. There is also a very faint sweet dark fruit tart flavor and rich smooth oat flavor that adds great complexity.

Mouthfeel is really thick but it's cut with some moderate small bubble carbonation gives it a velvety smooth feel.

Thanks to smchenry75 for the trade. Pours inky black with thin, tan head that dissipates quickly. Not much lacing to speak of. Strong coffee notes on the nose; unexpected, but not unpleasant. Cocoa and malt notes follow. Much like the aroma, coffee is the first flavor to hit the palate followed by bittersweet chocolate and brown sugar. There's a faint bitterness throughout the taste, not overwhelming but enough to notice. The flavors evolve as the beer warms, quite complex. Very velvety and smooth, with a full body and light carbonation. Overall, although I'm not a fan of the style, I found this to be a well crafted milk stout. FFF continues to impress!
