3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice stout brewed by Left Hand. This stout definitely has coffee character in both flavor and on the nose. Perhaps some dark bakers chocolate in there too. Lactose is present but not as present as I initially would have thought (considering it’s called milk stout). Pours nice and dark, almost back. Decent head that fizzes away. A worthy purchase!

This is a nice, creamy black stout. Like drinking chocolat milk, or a chocolate coffee. It would be great with a dark desert. Nice head when poured, Would be good with a heavy, maduro cigar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep and dark with a nose dominated by roasted barley, this is quite a drinkable brew. However, for a milk stout, this beer has too much roasted barley in the finish, giving it a bit of an earthy, burnt after taste. Still, quite credible, but give me a Duckrabbit milk stout any day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt, coffee flavors and bitter-sweet chocolate.
Roasty coffee flavors lightly sweet. The sweetness and lactose reveals itself slowly as it warms. Gets creamier and a lingering roasty bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty stuff. I love cream/milk stouts and this one delivers what I’m looking for, a nice roasty/creamy balance.

Black, with a thing cream head. Rich chocolate notes. Medium mouthfeel, tasting some coffee, chocolate, and some sort of fruit. Well balanced and quite delectable.

12 oz. bottle pours a dark cola color with a very thin mocha-colored head. The aroma is very slight, hinting at chocolate. The taste starts off with just a half-second of hop kick that fades rapidly into a very earthy, smokey and chocolate-driven finish. Not much bitterness at all. The palate is very creamy despite the suprisingly active carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2007 Pours very dark brown with nice thick whitish/brown head. Sweet aroma of mocha caramel malts. Flavor is very well-rounded nice semi-sweetness up front with a hint of bitterness in the finish. A little light bodiied for a stout, but it does go down nicely. Overall, very enjoyable.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, from Frugal McDoogals Beer Warehouse, Nash-TN. Dark pour, nice brown head that sticks around for most of the beer. (I guess that depends on how quickly you’re drinking, though!) Sweet aroma, flavor of a jamocha milkshake almost....finishes VERY smooth. Very light as far as a Stout is concerned. Wow, I was really impressed with this one-right up my alley!
