Aromas of coffee, cocoa, and caramel. Jet black with a mostly lasting, satiny tan head. Off-dry with flavors of dark chocolate, savory, and roasty. Light-medium bodied, smooth, creamy, and finishes with some vanilla tones.
Earlier Rating: 1/20/2013 Total Score: 3.8
Aromas of espresso beans, dark chocolate, and earthy hops. Black-brown, with ruby highlights, and a quickly fading, tan head. Tastes great, with solid robustness for a milk stout; starts with a sweet chocolatey/roasted coffee flavor, and dries up with some more complex, dirtier hop bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy, with low carbonation, and a semi-sweet, roasty finish.

A great nitrogen beer. Pours a beautiful amber black with a super thick tan head. Smells of coffee and vanilla, bit of French vanilla. Taste is similar, extremely creamy, and very smooth. Had on tap at Spritzenhaus in NYC.

12 oz bottle that from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Bottle reads ’Nitro’ and does not have the cow pic.
Plenty of lactose and a nice creamy nose and mouth feel. I liked it a lot.

Great bread like aroma! Creamy on the tongue, a bit coffee and roasty, dark chocolate sweet finish. Head is creamy white, thin when poured, but lasts the whole glass, very lacey. Nice to have a stout that’s American brewed and worthy of it. Glad I bought the whole six pack.

Bottle. Jet black pour. Thin head. Get skim milk and like a yeasty, kind of bread smell on the nose which is quite interesting. Taste is big dark chocolate and licorice, light rostiness on the finish and perhaps a touch of coffee. Solid brew.

Interesting offering, poured from a bottle at The Cheese Shop with brie and sharp cheddar. Nice coffee flavor, great color, small head, I’d drink this again.

Villámgyorsan eltűnő habja alól édesen pörkölt, sűrített tejes aroma száll fel, mely egy kissé savanykás és karamelles, telt, malátás ízben folytatódik, a prímet azonban a stoutokra egyébként is jellemző, frissen fejt, mosdatlan tehéntejes aroma viszi, mely ebben az esetben szinte magától értetődőnek tűnik.

Bottle (label says Nitro though). Pours a stouty brown-black, opaque with a thin off-white head that hangs around for a while like you’d expect from a Guinness pub-draught can. Nose is roasty, Cocoa Puffs, coffee and faint smokiness. Mouth is a bit thin for the style, medium bittersweet, decent mix of milk-chocolate, roasted barley, coffee beans. It’s decent -- I’m not jumping on the bandwagon though. Spiteful Brewing here in Chicago does a much better interpretation of the style called ’Mrs. O’Leary’s Cow’.

Wonderful stout, one of the best milk stouts on my opinion. Great mouthfeel. I do prefer the Nitro Milk Stout over the regular but just by a bit.

Nitro is great. Not much carb but loaded with roasty n toasty flavs. Left Hand has nailed it. Awesome dessert brew.
