Pours a deep dark brown with medium size tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma was a nice mix of roasted malts, a bit of caramel, tad of brown sugar, and pleasing citrusy hops. A flavorful hit of fresh hoppiness hits the tongue first, then your basic stout profile of roasted barly a bit of coffee and some chocolate. A nice bitter finish bookends the tasting perfectly. Mildly carbonated to keep it mightily quaffable. Extremely enjoyable.

Dark stout with decent head. Very sweet aroma with sugary, molasses-type aromas. Taste was also very sweet, but not really cloying. Brown sugar, molasses flavors with a pretty clean finish. Mouthfeel was medium-light. Very drinkable, though I only had one.

Had this brew on a recent visit for dinner.
The brew arrives in an english pint glass and is a dark chocolate brown with a creamy tan head resting on the surface. The aroma is fairly roasty with some chocolate and brown sugar notes as well. A little bit of coffee too. First sip reveals an average body with creamy texture and very fine gentle carbonation.
First sip reveals a chocolate and molasses sweetness which moves fairly quickly to roasted malt that is almost coffee bitter and definitely dry on the finish. The beer is less sweet than several of the milk stouts I have had but is very drinkable and enjoyable, dont be scared by the name this is not sugar bomb!

Deep dark brown color, with a light brown head that laces the glass nicely. Aroma is of light hops. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, and lets the roasted malt flavor roll around your mouth. Flavor has fine bits of chocolate, coffee, and molasses, but is not overly sweet as the name might suggest. Hops flavor lingers on the tongue.
