I love this beer, it's been one of my favorites ever since I joined the dark side (meaning I don't drink anymore of that piss colored macro stuff). It pours black as night with a orangish brown head that changes to a brownish yellow upon settling. Oh and the smell of this beer, yummy. I mean, it combines a sweet malty aroma with those lovely chocolate undertones, I wish they had this scent available at the carwash. The beer drinks smooth, with a coffee chocolate taste. The roasted malt flavor hangs around after each drink. It is a little sweet but the flavor of this beer is dynamic in that it changes from the beginning of the sip till after the swallow. Even hints of some bitterness. The is a standard in my favorites.

Pours a deep dark brown with a finger of beige head that retains quite nicely and leaves a good amount of lace behind on the glass. The nose is mildly roasty. The roast in the flavor profile is very mild and is almost completely overwhelmed by the sugary sweetness that lasts into the finish.
I know that milk stouts are supposed to be sweet but the best of this style balance the sweetness with some nice roasted malt flavor. This offering falls too far into the sweet category for my liking.
