Pours dark, almost opaque, but some light comes through. Huge amount of tan foam is thick and frothy. Retention is ridiculously good while lacing wasn't there in spite of the foam slowly moving on the sides of the glass.
Aroma is faint. Roasted malt, chocolate, and some creamy sweetness can be found.
Taste is sweet milk chocolate, caramel, with roasted malt and a hint of coffee late. A touch of bitterness hangs around.
Medium body with late carbonation on top of a creamy body.
A nice stout that has a really nice creamy body that fills the mouth while the sweet milk chocolate melds nicely with roasted malts. Definitely easy to drink that is well rounded. Enjoy!

One fine body…
As the name implies, Mother’s Milk is a dark and creamy milk stout. Hints of oatmeal, chocolate and of course, milk make this brew have a remarkably smooth and silky finish, a classic example of the style.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
