3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a thick dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy light brown head that was mostly diminishing with just a little residue left to cling to the glass thus producing some really excellent lacing.
The aroma had a strong scent of a burnt chocolate malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and lactose.
The taste was a nice malty sweet and very smooth with a note of toffee and chocolate in the beginning and finished with a sweet chocolate-coffee flavor that had a milky caramel presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow which was just long enough for the milky chocolate-coffee flavor to settle in.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between medium and full in body with a nice creamy texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall a nice smooth creamy tasting Brew with a great drinkability.

On tap at the brewery. Sweet and creamy-just what I was hoping for. Rich and delicious and left me wanting more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pitch black, with a small, bubbly, fleeting head. Light coffee, syrup, dirt, and butter toffee. Sweet and roasty, with a sharp bitterness. Medium to heavy body, very sticky and clingy. This is a bitter, relatively harsh milk stout. Still, pretty tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at College Liquors in Grand Junction, CO; enjoyed on my final night in Fruita, CO while watching Game of Thrones. Appearance is pitch black with a dark tan head. Aroma is rich in dark chocolate, doesn't smell too sweet. Taste is also very rich in dark chocolate, decadent without being too sweet. Nicely done.

Bottle at Imazato. Nose of soy, cocoa, milk, berries. Flavor is pretty much the same with a touch of coffee. A bit plain and flat but ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark with dark tan head. Aroma of heavy creme and dark chocolate. Dark and somewhat bitter chocolate, milky taste, also acidic. Palate is actually watery rather than thick and creamy. Lefthand is so much better than this. Disappointing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light nose of berries, small chocolate bit, even a hint of citrus, and light fumes. Oily black, slick, no lace. Thin chocolatey initial, some dark fruit, berries, and a touch of lactic stuff. Medium body, creamy, and very little carbonation. Nice enough, for what it is. Kind of lifeless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet aroma and flavor, with some bitterness and a hint of souring lactose. Complex, yet lighter than I like in a stout. Ok overall.
