3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 nice dark pour...initial smell of cigarettes and burnt cream with hints of caramel. flavor is malty with some hints of chocolate and a light burnt/coffee after taste. a little thin but good overall7/4/7/2/15=3.4
fresh bottle reveals aromas of cocoa, wood and vanilla cream. flavors of wood, nuttiness, chocolate and lacto. nice astringency helps to break up the smooth texture. 7/4/7/3/16=3.7

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a weak red hue and a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of chocolate and roasted malt and perhaps a very light sourness, but not like the hard-core milk stouts - nice. The flavour has a nice sweetness, notes of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet coffee and a very discrete sourness and a light bitterness. The body is quite full in spite of the relatively low ABV - really nice. 2391

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with garnet highlights and a creamy, tan head. The nose is of chocolate, coffee and cream with a sour lactose note. Medium-bodied and creamy, it feels soft on the tongue and concludes with dry/roasted and lightly metallic notes. The flavor is of milk chocolate, coffee and cream with a lightly dry and sour finish. I really enjoy a good sweet stout, and this beer is no exception.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong, woody, milky/creamy, tarry, roasted coffee aroma. Pours a shiny, very dark brown color (nearly black) with an amber hue and a small to moderate amount of short-lasting, light tan head. Produces moderate lacing. Sharp, roasted malt taste. Creamy flavor. Not exactly sweet, but certainly not particularly dry. Roasted-bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Overall, Left Hand Milk Stout is a pleasant but not outstanding brew. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
