Bottom line: it tastes great for about 6-8 ounces, after that, for me, it's just too sugary and sweet.

Dark brown body, one finger mocha head that fades quickly. Not much retention. No lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, bitter, sweet lactose, cocoa. Not too complicated. Flavour is dark roast malt, a bit bitter with the cocoa and dark chocolate, fair amount of sweet lactose, mildly roasted beans. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, soft, good carbonation, easy to drink. Overall, a fairly average milk stout that doesn't have much in way of defects, but it doesn't truly impress me either.
