This one came to me courtesy of my local/in-person trader, tone77, who is always on-time! Many thanks.

From the bottle: "The Hudson Valley's Brewery".

I felt compelled to Pop! the cap & give it a heavy-handed, aggro pour if for no other reason than to see if it would produce a pseudo-cascade, which it did. Simple things to occupy this simple mind, no doubt! My, but Mother's Milk was highly carbonated. The massive, dense, rocky, deep-tan/light-brown head rose quickly & then refused to fall, much to my chagrin & annoyance. I wanted to get started! Grr. Ah well, it all settled out eventually, leaving loads of sticky lacing in its wake. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing cola highlights only at the edges. Nose had a sweet chocolate presence & I could see tone77's point about a chocolate milkshake. Mouthfeel was ... not thin, but not much beyond it, either. It was definitely less than optimal for any style of Stout, however. The taste was really sweet & chocolaty, very evocative of milk chocolate, which was to be expected. I did not get much other than sweetness & chocolate where others reported a light bitterness. Oh well. I would look like the duty dummy if I dunned a Sweet Stout for simply being sweet. Finish was likewise sweet & chocolaty & more suited to being a dessert beer. There was nothing wrong with this, but it was just too sweet for my personal taste. YMMV.

The look and feel of this beer is above average and so is the taste. Sometimes it can be inconsistent in the feel relating to the carbonation. Keegan's stands by their product and will replace any beer that is unacceptable.

Look is deep black/brown, smell includes a bit of cloyingly sweet chocolate syrup, taste is heavy on the sweet chocolate, feel is smooth. I found this on sale locally, and took a chance; it's good, very drinkable stout. Gets a bit boring to drink perhaps because there's little 'bite' to it, so not an exceptional experience. Not hugely excited about drinking a stout called Mother's Milk, so there may be some bias due to my slight aversion to the name.
