pours opaque brown with a big, stcky lace kind of dark tan head. Literally, light will not pass thru this stuff.
Smells of milk chocolate, with a hint of fruit.
Taste is wonderful, sweet chocolate toffee, with just enough bitter in the finish to balance it out.
Mouthfeel is, IMHO, the best there is. It's soft, smooth, and silky. Amazing!
A very drinkable stout. Although I can only drink maybe two or three because they are quite filling.
This is one of my very favorite brews. You can get 'em for about a buck each, so I keep some on hand all of the time.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
