A - Pours a dark muddy mocha color with a minimalist oil slick head. Some lacing and fair carbonation.
S - Chocolate notes. Maybe a little smokey.
T - Delicious. It is sweet, but somewhat bitter. Chocolate, coffee, and lactose shine through the muddy brew wonderfully. One of the few beers that, according to the packaging, tastes exactly as it is described. I can't get enough of this one. Nothing about it tastes medicinal or synthetic to me like other chocolate-esque brews; it is seemingly made with high quality ingredients and seems perfectly natural.
M - A little thick, but incredibly smooth.
D - Pretty good. Although the ABV suggests its candidacy as a session beer, its sweetness takes it off the list for me.
I highly recommend this one to any fan of milk stout. The only thing I would have liked better is to taste this brew on-tap.

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.
