Such a lovely and inviting, creamy brown head two fingers thick. Pretty good retention to a filmy foam then slowly to nothingness. The aroma is a lactosey, bananaey, roasted malty, slight toffee aroma. Just awesome. The flavor is just shy of perfect for a milk stout. Sweet, a little dry and even hints of fruit mixed in with the milky goodness of this very smooth and very sessionable 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.
