Pours a nice deep black color with a nice tan head. A very good looking stout!The aroma is very sweet and malty with definite coffee notes and did I mention that it smells sweet? This is truly a dessert of a beer... It's flavor is smooth and mellow. It is probably the milkiest milk stout I have ever had... It is very sweet with hints of cream and chocolate and a coffee like bitterness in the finish. Damn good stout if you ask me...

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.
