look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured a very dark brown which trapped any passing light. The tan/cream head was very minimal and fell to the edges quickly. Very fine lace webbing.

Smell: Roasted malts take over the scene, here - In a pleasant way.

Taste: The beginning urges a refreshing sweetness; the middle crashes the sweetness of those malts and brings out the roasted flavor until it grows to a peak; the end wanders off into a relaxed coffee flavor.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, maybe just a bit over carbonated.

Overall: One of my most enjoyed milk stouts. The head ( and the carbonation level are the only things I would alter.
