3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark black in color with a great off white head that stays thinned out like a sheet, but stays built up around the edge of the glass. Smells sweet, like coffee. Tastes like coffee, light chocolate, typical stout flavors, but you can definitely find the milk in this one also..not typical. Mouthfeel is very much like milk, I almost forgot that I was drinking beer. I think its just a mental thing, considering the commercial description says that its "milk sugar", in the beer. It is a good spin on a stout. I liked this, and you should too.

This is a quality brew, but not my favourite from Left Hand. If you like stouts, try this one, ícos itís different. I have to disagree with the guy that says he could drink a lot of these though (I mean if he means in one sitting). Because first of all (1) You can only drink so much milk and secondly (2) itís a stout, and stouts tend to be quite filling. Anyway, I was fairly pleased with the brew, but did find the milky taste a bit overwhelming.

This beer was awesome. Other ratings donít quite do it justice. The aroma and appearance werenít spectacular, but the taste was different from any sweet stout iíve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours like black creme fraiche. Not much on the nose at all. Full, rich nectar. So thick I almost choked. Flavors of tar, coffee, cocoa, mud, and some cool celery. Very lucious and mellow smooth. A dry style with a touch of sugar on the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2012 thin runny pour. very dark with a small tan head. excellent coffee, roasted barley flavor. milk sugar adds a perfect sweetness. mild aroma of chocolate and coffee. extremely smooth. it would be easy to drink lots of these.
nitro bottle rate. beautiful nitro pour with a tall, creamy dark tan head. has the nitro pour appearance but it settles a little faster than with a widget or from the tap. palate is creamy and full. flavor is the same as the original. an incredible beer just got better! collectively, this is one of my favorite beers of all time.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A black appearance with a beige head and good lacing. A milk chocolate and somewhat nutty aroma. The flavor consists of chocolate, cappucino, coffee creamer, and some dark fruit. The beer balances out the sweetness and bitter aspects well. The palate is somewhat thin but the finish is very smooth with a hint of bitterness. A good stout.
