A - I really enjoy the appearance of this beer. pitch black, and with an aggressive poor a good two finger head can be achieved. the head is a very pretty dark tan with white swirls throughout. the head does reduce significantly later on though.
S - pretty damn good smell here. coffee, cinnamon and other spices and some chocolate.
T - pretty much the same as the scent. i'm very fond of this sort of flavor. the lactose used makes it smooth and creamy. a very pleasing sweetness.
M - smooth and creamy. i small bit of tingling from carbonation on the center of the tongue.
D - depending on your tastes and how the weather this can be very drinkable. i find that the creamy nature of the beer as well as the spice combination makes it an excellent winter brew. in hotter seasons it's a bit too thick to be enjoyed past the first couple of beers.
additional notes - this beer has become a staple for me, i find myself always grabbing 12 packs of it at bevmo to keep around. for a beer i like so well it's very affordable ranging from 10-12 dollars for a 12 pack depending if it's on sale or not.

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.
