This is my favorite milk stout--it's got a terrific aroma and exceptional flavor. Unlike many milk stouts, Mackeson XXX does not start off bitter and fade into sweet, it starts off somewhat bold, but without biting. It finishes smooth and leaves an aftertaste of sweetened condensed milk! Can't have more than one or two, but those one or two are terrific.

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.
