3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Pours a murky opaque dark brown. Smells the toasted notes with a sharp smell of alcohol.
Tastes sweet and chocolaty with just a little bit of sharpness. A complex taste, Its also has a wonderful and smooth mouth feel.
I think it still can be a bit much, and after a pint I cant say I feel like another one. Its far too sweet however its a decent drink to have now and again.

A mild stout. A bit of bitter as expected but overall smooth and easy to drink. Left Hand has changed the label on this one...it is currently known as Nitro Milk Stout.

Left Hand is a very restrained milk stout. The pour looks promising: dark and creamy with just the right cap of brown head. The taste hits all the right notes: roasty, toasty, and mildly sweet. However, everything is muted and the body is actually rather light. One nice thing is the way the finish lingers. But, I have brewed better milk stout in my kitchen.

Black color with big beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee. Taste is more coffee and roadted malts, nice vanilla sweetness. Amazingly full taste for this ABV for a Stout. Excellent.

Tap (Hopfenreich, Berlin). Barwa czarna z rubinowymi refleksami pod swiatlo, piana w kolorze jasno bezowej, srednio obfita ale bardzo trwala. W aromacie glownie kawa z subtelna, slodka nuta laktozy w tle. Leciutka kawowa palonosc w smaku z wyrazna slodka nuta laktozy w kontrze. Piwo bardzo lekkie i gladkie w odczuciu, bardzo pijalne, lekko slodkawe ale bez efektu ulepku, sesyjne jednym slowem.

Flaska. Mörkbrun vätska med beige skum. Dofter av choklad, rostad malt, kaffe och karamell. Smakinslag av mjölkchoklad, vanilj och rostad malt. Mjuk och len munkänsla. Riktigt bra.

Bottle. Pours deep ruby with no head. Coffee and cola aroma. Nice light nutty taste along with some coffee and sweetness. The mouthfeel is a bit off for me, I’d like it to be a bit more smooth, it’s kind of fizzy. Overall a good stout.

From a nitro bottle. Pours black with a big brown head. Aromas of malts, coffee, and chocolate blend together. Tastes much the same with some light sweetness reminiscent of chocolate milk. The feel is very smooth and creamy with a bit of lightness to it. Overall a very nice, easy drinking stout, with similarities to Guinness.

Covering both nitro and basic with this review. (Nitro only) Has a cool cascade like effect after hard pour as head comes to the surface. Neat looking. Wonderful lacing from the lasting head. (Both) Dark black with a reasonable of white head. Aroma is roasty and almost char like quality along with some sweetness from the milk sugars. Both are smooth and front in the mouth the nitro being even more so. Flavor is somewhat sweet and roasted malt up front with a burnt sugar showing up in the finish. Solid. Basic beer scores only ever so slightly lower than posted scores (-1 for palate, appearence, and overall).
