purchased at red apple in bremerton, washington.
pours black with a touch of red hue, large frothy brown head with very nice lacing.
smells of milk cocoa mix, vanilla bean, touch of coffee.
taste is on the weak side, chocolate milk, coffee, whoppers candy.
overall a bit on the sweet side and a little watery, but still a nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2015 2. rerate, 355 ml bottle, as Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.0%. Black colour, low and creamy beige head. Dryish roasty aroma, notes of coffee, hints of woodwork, cocoa and liquorice. Low carbonation. Medium dry and very roasty flavour with a little lactose sweetness present, notes of strong coffee, a little dark chocolate and liquorice. Should not be drunk ice cold, cellar temperature is better. 1. rerate, 12 fl. oz. bottle, bought at the GBBF 2008 for takeaway (forgot that I had rated it previously). ABV was said to be 5.0%. Dark brown colour, nearly black, nice and lasting tan head. Notes of aroma: same as first time. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy. The flavour has still plenty of roasted malts and lactose sweetness, also notes of chocolate, mild coffee and some liquorice. Good stuff - I’m upping it a few points. Original rating: Sampled bottle, RBNAG 2007 in Grimstad. Dark brown to black colour. Nice roasty aroma, notes of cocoa, hints of liquorice. Moderately sweet flavour, plenty of maltiness (probably also lactose).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle into pint glass. Pours a dark brown with thin tan head that dissipates very quickly. The aroma is of milk, butter and some malts. Flavor is very sweet upon first hitting your mouth with hints of butter-toffee and finishes with a slight bitterness. Creamy overtones are present throughout. Has a smooth, lacey mouthfeel. Very good and very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap : Very dark pour with a huge brown head and awesome lacing. A milky nose on this one. I wasnt impressed much by the flavor, mainly cause i didnt find much there. Also the body was a little thin for a stout. Its ok, just not wonderful.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
10/20/07 On draught at Uber, Seatle. Aroma is very sweet creamy roast malt, just about perfect. Appearance is dark brown/black with a medium off-white head. Flavor is sweet roast malt forward, very well blended and slightly sour, but not objectionable. Mouthfeel is medium/high bodied with a low carb feel. Overall, very good and very easy drinking, I like this style, but often find it tough to plow through more than one; good job left hand for getting me to ask for another.

Bottle. Dark/black. Good head that disappears after a while. Fresh smell. Light-bodied with sweet taste of coffee and chocolate. I would have liked a tad more bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep mahogany red, almost black, colour. Dense head. Sweet, slightly roasted, chocolate aroma; smells great. Roasted flavour with notes of coffee and chocolate. With a little more body this would’ve been a great stout, now it’s "just" pleasant.
