Dead brown, nearly black. A dense but slim, cocoa hued crown envelopes the top well. The foam eventaully slips off leaving a thin ring and few small patchy areas of glaring, clear coated lace.

Appetizing aroma of a dense, creamy, rich chocolate milk shake. Quite lactic enriched in sweetness with a nice rounded heft of chocolate that brings to mind both or either tootsie rolls of chocolate cake. Pretty much what any and all milk stouts should strive to be.

Taste is one smooth, creamy, delightful, chocolatey experience. Lactic action aside, which it definately has a good amount of, the chocolate tone is very well recieved amidst its milky, oaty sweet softened, smoothed out body. Very liquencent and milky, just as it should be. Nearly un-beerlike as it has a remarkable effect within its medium statured body that is very akin to drinking a straight up chocolate milk with a side of oatmeal and a side of melted tootsie roll.
Ummm....Yum!

Moloko dumps into a pint glass midnight black and actually swallows up the surrounding light. Even when this beer is backlit there's no sign of light through the body. The head grew to two creamy fingers of mocha colored foam before fading to a thin cap and solid collar. There's a spot or two of lace left here and there but not much.

There's a healthy dose of smooth roasty malts in the nose. The roastiness leads the way front to back but a deeper whiff brings out some dark ripe berriness with blackberries being the main culprit. There's enough lactic sugar sweetness to balance out the roast qualities. Slight booze spiciness and tobacco leaf float through ghost-like to add depth. The aroma on this beer pulls me right in.

Wow, this is a mighty fine milk stout! The roastiness jumps out big and although it fades slightly plays a big role in the flavor of this beer without ever becoming acrid. The lactic sugar plays a big role as well balancing out the smooth roastiness and when combined with the berriness reminds me of blackberries in cream. High cocoa content dark chocolate seems to coat the tongue and a couple drops of espresso mix in there as well. This is an excellent milk stout!

Moloko wraps its velvety self around your tongue and massages it all the way through. The body is dense but incredibly smooth with a mellow carbonation. There's a hint of heat on the finish. I couldn't ask for more then what the body of Moloko already offers.

This beer goes down entirely too fast. The alcohol ringing in at a higher then usual, for the style, 7% will catch up to you if you drink this as fast as you'd like.

This is the best milk stout I've had to date. To be totally honest I expected a quality beer but nothing like this. I picked up a couple of these for trades and only one for myself. I'll be off to the store tomorrow to remedy that problem. Pick this up if you see it!

Thanks go to Joe1510/Howardf for this!

A vigorous pour reveal a velvety black beauty, with a gorgeous cocoa colored head, one finger in height. Get a good look - because as fast as it appears - it is gone, falling away into nothingness.
No lacing to be seen.

Aroma is sweet - as in licorice, molasses, milk chocolate and cocoa. Loads of lactose sugars here - nice. Some notes of coffee find their way into the mix as well.

Taste is a carbon copy of the nose... which I had hopes that it would be. A certain sour twang hits the sides of the tongue on the first sip, but this seems to dissipate as the stout itself slowly disappears. Seems a bit heavier on the coffee in the taste than the nose - nice surprise there. Good hints at grains and roasted malts, but hold no reservations - the sweetness of this is the star here. Everything else is just in complimentary accompaniment, and well balanced at that. Little to no bitterness, nice and roasty in the finish.

Moderately full in body, smooth, silky and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Slightly dry - more so towards the finish. Carbonation is quite subtle - perfect for this style.

I like this - a lot. Milk/Sweet Stouts are not usually one of my favorites - but the level of roastyness and coffee undertones really brings "balance" to this for me. Very enjoyable, a good sipper - although I find my self putting this away a bit to quickly...
One of the better Milk Stouts out there. Craving something sweet? Grab some Moloko!
*Edit*
As this warms up... Ohhh Yeaaaah Babe.
Thanks Joe!
Highly Recommended.

Thanks to RoyMunson for this great extra.

Quite dark and opaque with a thin half inch or so, light brown, head of foam. Very little retention and hardly any decent head formation. Well, it seems like a slightly aggressive swirl does bring back about half an inch of foam but still not very attractive.

Yum, haven’t had a milk stout in a long time. Espresso notes on the nose, roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, rich and sugary cream, and also some chocolate covered nuts. After a while the aroma seems drier with cocoa and dark roasted malts than the initial sweet chocolate profile. Some faint fruitiness like raisins and dates.

Sweet chocolate and coffee upfront with a nicely roasted and semi-dry finish. Toast, coffee, chocolate and toffee is pretty much all that there is in this beer. A little more roasted in the following sips. Some grainy flavors begin to develop as well. I’m also getting some fruity esters in the finish. After about half way through my pint glass the beer just seems to fall off, especially mid-palate there is hardly anything holding on in the middle of the tongue. Mostly roasted and dry chocolate flavors on the sides of the tongue, wish there was a little more sweetness upfront. After the second pour from the bottle I begin to detect some alcohol flavor in the end.

Low to medium carbonation. Super easy to drink, didn’t realize this was 7% until I was ready to upload my review, but the second half of the bomber does begin to taste a little stronger. Pretty decent and tasty overall.

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.

A - Pour produces a half inch of cocoa colored foam. It's of medium density and shows decent staying power. Body is very dark brown, but not quite black and is completely opaque.

S - Nice roastiness that doesn't let up. Light espresso. Cocoa and milk chocolate. Slightly toasty.

T - Starts off with light milk chocolate. Roastiness comes in with light espresso grind to it. Chocolate reappears, this time semisweet baker's chocolate. Lactose comes in at the very end. If you swallow to quickly, you might not taste it until the liquid is already in your belly. No aftertaste to speak of.

M - Medium bodied. Slick feel to it. Full body, smoother feel would do wonders.

Overall - Good, flavorful stout here. One of the rare times you won't taste a massive dose of hops in a Three Floyds brew, but that's ok. Definitely worth a shot.

Color was jet black, as expected, with decent foam on the pour. Smell was very very good. You get the sweet up front, then some coffee, burnt malt, and chocolate. The first taste was great, and about the same as the smell. You really get the chocolate in there though, which comes through as a semi-sweet hot chocolate powder type of taste. You don't get very much at all for hops in this one. That might seem obvious given the style, but this IS FFFs we're talking about here. So that should be pointed out. Feel was a bit thin for the style. Much thinner than I expeted from looking at the first pour.

I have to admit that this was the first FFFs bottle in a long time that made me say "Wow" on my first-ever drink. I said with the obvious ones --- Dreadnaught and Dark Lord. I even said that with Pride & Joy, as I considered the earlier batches of that one to be a real standout in the style. But this one gave me that same first impression.
