Bought at Woodman's in Madison, WI. Super dark pour with a light tan head with tons of lacing. Smell of coffee, chocolate, a tad bit of vanilla. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. Really nice and creamy stout. Three Floyds continues to impress.
A brownish stout with poor head retention. Very light aroma of chocolate, nuts and a bit of roast. Mouthfeel struck me as light at first, but I think that was the fizziness out of the bottle, as it stilled it was much more full. Flavor is pretty sweet, a hint of anise but mostly sweet.
..bottle bought to Freetail for the ORB release.. Pours out a medium brown .. good lacing.. aged 2 years and its mellowed alot! ..very subtle..a decent and high end milky.. . The Korova milkbar sold milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra violence ..
this was a beer that grew on me. at first the body seemed a little thin (at least for what i was hoping) from a milk stout, but as it breathed, it was increasingly creamy and smooth. aroma is highly roasted, almost like a dry irish, but the feel and flavor have a definite lactic quality. milk chocolate galore and a touch of hops. well dome.
A fairly solid pour into my 25cl tulip glass yields a two-finger thick, darkly browned, tan colored head that sits on top of a very black colored beer. The darkness is complete as this beer does not pass light even when held up directly to the light. The aroma is dominated by roasted grain character; aromas of French roast coffee beans, well toasted barley husk, blackened whole grain bread, crushed well browned (not quite burnt) crackers and some sweet, burnt caramel notes. Though amply roast focused, the nose keeps from being overly harsh.
This is quite sweet, the lactose really comes through quite strongly; it is a simple sweetness that is a touch too strong for the rest of the beer. Underneath the sweetness is an ample roasted malt character that provides both a touch of burnt acidity as well as a roast-grain bitterness. There is quite a bit of toasted, browned grain character to this beer as well, with notes of browned whole grain crackers and an almost burnt bread crust note. Concentrated, yet smooth, flavors of black coffee are found towards the finish. The body somehow seems lighter than it really is, I think this is a product of the lactose influence somehow as this beer does have some viscosity to it.
Somehow this beer is a bit simplistic. I expect a greater malt complexity in both the flavor and the aroma; in the case of the flavor that lactose seems to drown out a lot of notes that might otherwise be noticeable. Not bad, but a bit bland.
Pours a thick opaque black colour with a mahogany tint near the bottom. The head is big, tan with notes of milk, chocolate, toffee and cinnamon. Not a whole lot of carbonation, but pleasent rich flavors and nuances all throughout this brew.
On tap at the brewery. Milk chocolate and espresso aroma. Pitch black with fine brown head. Tastes like a chocolate malt. Very full bodied and sticky. Reminds me of a Irish Car Bomb. If you are not familiar, get a pint of stout, and drop a shot of Irish Cream in it, the chug. The difference is that I didn’t chug this, and it was much more enjoyable.
Poured a dark brown, black color witha creamy, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla, lactose, and marshmellows. Taste of sweet chocolate, vanilla, and a dry, roasted malt finish. Velvetty soft mouthfeel.
