Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip pint glass

The beer pours a deep brown/nearly black with about two fingers worth of dense tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving behind very little lacing.

The beer smells moderately roasty and slightly sweet, The aroma seems to fit into a nice middle ground of not being too mild, but also not being overpowering

The taste, like the aroma, is moderately roasty and slightly sweet. The sweetness seems to come more from a heavy handed use of crystal malts than from the lactose. The body is a little thinner than I would expect for the style.

Overall, this is a decent beer that is fairly easy to drink, but not something that I would seek out. I prefer my Milk/Sweet Stouts to be a bit fuller in body, and a have a little more sweetness from the lactose.

Black pour with a tan one-finger head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Creamy and sweet flavor with a light roasted malt, vanilla and milk chocolate flavors upfront. Also has a slight bitter coffee/espresso flavor on the backend. Medium bodied.

A bit too bitter IMO, but not bad. Great if you want to get buzzed quicker!
