It's like darth vader in a glass it's so dark. The off white head dies a bit wuickly though. I get chocolate in the nose, along with coffee, cream, peanut butter, molasses, and a slight burnt rubber lurking in the background. When I taste it, I am overwhelmed by a coffee ice cream flavor, accomanied by chocolate and nuts. Truly wonderful flavors. This feels smooth and slightly bubbly in the mouth, and is as drinkable as any stout.

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.
