3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown/black with a quickly disappearing light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is pretty sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. The overall flavor is good but it doesn’t really stand out at all. Leaves a slighly burnt lightly milky aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little dissapointing, pretty thin - but it redeems itself with a silky smoothness. Overall, it’s solid.

Bottle. (RBNAG 07) Pours a clear, dark brown body, under a beige head. Roasted nose with cocoa, nice. It almost feels dry and dusty, not as sweetish as expected. Roasted flavor with some fruityness, dryish, yet quite sweet. Quite dusty mouthfeel for a milk stout, medium to full body. Really nice, lovely balance between the sweetness and roastyness. Thx for bringing this one, Sigmund. (071103)

Nice Stout. Sweet aroma, sweet coffee/cream flavor. Great appearance, when I bring home a sixer, I’m lucky to get 2 before my roommates pound them all.

12/28/2007: Left Hand Milk Stout has a clear, dark brown color with a foamy brown head. This beer smells like black coffee with a heavy dose of creamer in it. There is also a note of smei-sweet or dark chocolate in the back. The flavor is pretty sweet and has lots of milk and semi-sweet chocolate characteristics, roasted malts, lactose, and creamed coffee. It finishes great with lots of smooth, rich chocolate with a hint of espresso at the very end. The body of this beer is medium and it too is quite smooth on the palate and goes down nice and quick. There is some stickiness on the lips. Another solid beer from Left Hand and a pretty flavorful and good Milk Stout overall. This beer probably has a wider appeal than the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/left-hand-black- Hand Black Jack Porter due to its sweetness and distinct chocolate flavors.
12 fl. oz. bottle (Bottled on 07 12 06) from West Side Liquors and Wine Shop in West Harrison, Ohio. Rating #684 for this beer...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a chocolate brown color with a small tan head that quickly turns to nothing. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, milk?, and chocolate. Taste is much the same and feels smooth and a bit watery. Not the best beer, but decent because this is one of the few sweet stout that does not over do the sweetness. Mouth feel is medium, semi acidic and finish is short.
