this is a great example of a sweet stout. It touches on many of the key components for a solid stout. The color is good although i can till see through it, and the head retention is strong. I have had other sweet stouts and this one is maybe not the best but right up there.

A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. On the pour it looks dark brown, but in the glass it appears black with a small light-brown head. Some minor splotches of lace.

S: Some coffee, molasses and that milk stout smell (I think that's the lactose).

T: Roasted malt and coffee beans up front, then the sweet lactose. Finishes with a charcoal-like bitterness that makes it drink like a milk porter (rather than a milk stout).

M: Medium in heft, maybe a tad lighter. Carbonation is modest, giving this one a slightly oily or slick feel to it.

O: Good stuff. Solid. Not blown away by it, but not disappointed either.
