12oz bottle poured at 45F into a goblet.
Dark midnight black with faint reds around the glass. Nice thick espresso brown head makes this a very presentable beer. The nose was string of sweet chocolates and roasted coffee beans. This is a very smooth beer with a wonderful mouthfeel. The medium body is well blended with the sugary malts and English hops. I would not call it a triple stout, but this is a very good brew.

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.
