I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color. A thin white to off white foamy head appeared and dissipated within seconds barely leaving any lacing.
The smell had a large amount of roasty chocolate-ness. Light coffee intrudes in a decent way.
The taste was basically the same and had a sly coffee/chocolate aftertaste leading to the same sort of finish.
The mouthfeel was somewhat sharp through the carbonation but smooth as it carried itself over my tongue.
Overall, in my opinion, I like this milk/sweet stout. I'd have it again as dessert.

Pours near black with a brown head that doesn't trail the glass. The smell is full of sweet cream and chocolate, very heavy. The taste is equally heavy with chocolate being the star of the beer with lighter notes of coffee on the end.
