Taste wise, I like this much better than Left Hand Milk Stout. Creaminess and mouthfeel, I’ve gotta give it to Left Hand. Black pour with a nice tan head. Chocolatey barley and lactose on the taste with some nice creaminess. Solid beer.

Poured into sniffer. Color leans towards dark brown with light white head. Not picking up on any aroma. Taste is standard coffe and chocolate stout. Some bitterness in aftertaste. Solid but nothing stands out.

Very minerally, like blood. Not chocolatey or smooth. Maybe a bad batch, but the whole six-pack was that way. My wife loves any kind of stout, but would not drink more than one sip of it. I blended it with other stouts, and that worked pretty well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Nitro Tap] Pours an inky black color. Aroma of chocolate malts. Tastes of sweet lactose, roasted barley and charred wood. Smooth and lighter than expected body (Probably due to the nitro more than anything.) Tasting notes from 1/2014.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Glossy black with sinking grey-tan collar. Aroma of rust, blackened grain, rye bread and carob. Simplistic burnt profile; paper and wood with hints of deeply bitter high cocoa chocolate, yeast extract on charred toast, maybe pepper. Slippery mouthfeel. Mentholyptus cough sweet with a slug of cold water bitterness. Alcohol pronounced and warming. Unimpressive.
