Pours out as dark as possible, with a medium brown head, nice lacing after it shrinks.
Smell is great, nice chocolate notes, molasses slightly protruding. No sign of coffee in the aroma. All chocolate.
I can't get enough of this one. Chocolate cream with a tinge of whiskey and bread in the middle and a moist and roasted finish. The drinkability of this one is much higher than I could even ask for.
I'd take this one over Young's Chocolate anyday.

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.
