Pours out deep copper brown and sits black in the glass with a good sized creamy brown head, fading to a light skim with some decent lacings.
Smells of sweet cocoa, caramel and mild coffee aromas. Thick and malty overally with an abundance of doughish yeast overtones.
Tastes mildly sweet up front, big chocolate tones up and down. Light coffee flavors with lucious vanilla and caramel. Faint to mild hops bitterness, no interupting the malt train.
Purely suductive and full-bodied package. Soft and rounded carbonation in mild-moderate levels. Let it warm and it will shine.
Absolutely delicious and irresistible to the tongue. Properly consumed in generous helpings.

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.
