Nice average milk stout... sweet with a bitterness. Solid B, but nothing special compared to all the milk stouts out there.

Bottle. Pours a rich opaque black with a tall, sticky, lacey brown head. Nose is brown sugar, cafe au lait, and vanilla. Prodigious smoke and dark fruit on the front of the tongue, followed by espresso and vanilla. Bourbon on the finish. I like this very much.
