This is a favorite of mine. It's one of those beers that helped further my interest in seeking out new, better tasting beers back when all I knew about things besides Bud and Coors was Guinness and Sam Adams. And the best thing about Mackeson's XXX (besides the taste) is that you can get it cheaply at just about any Trader Joe's.
A - I love pouring out the thick black syrupiness of one of these. What a lovely dark head.
S - Smell is probably its weakest point, although the hint of what you're about to taste is present.
T - What a tremendous, great chocolately taste! Oh the sweet maltiness of it all.
M - Not a huge mouthfeel, but it spreads over the tongue nicely.
D - This is a favorite. I could down these all day and all night. No need for dessert with a XXX!

3.74/5 rDev -7.9%

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.
