Left Hand Milk Stout is a clear, deep, deep ruby ale with a thin khaki head that leaves good lacing. It has a roasty aroma with a touch of sweetness. It is medium bodied, smooth and crisp. It’s sweet with notes of caramel, milk and coffee. It’s very roasty. This is just excellent! Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Dark black pour with a foamy tan head. Aroma is sweet chocolate. Smooth caramel that has some roast bitter but not enough to balance the sweetness I think. Still an excellent beer. MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Attractive black pour with substantial tan head that fluffs up and then lingers forever. The aroma is coffee, chocolate milk and licorice. The flavors follow pretty much as anticipated by the aroma...coffee, chocolate milk, licorice, and a very creamy (milkly) mouthfeel that feels fairly luxurious on the tongue.

I was pumped to try this one. Pours a dark, dark amber. Not quite as dark as many of the stouts I’ve had. Quickly diminishing dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate and molasses. Nice creamy texture with chocolate milk and slight roasted malts. NIce sweet finish of chocolate and malts. This was a great beer. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle @ The Druid... Poured almost black with amber highlights and a tiny, off-white head. Smoked malts and a little bit of mocha on the nose. Thick, fizzy, well carbonated palate. Flavors were very creamy with sweet malts and lots of roasted coffee bean notes. Not much bitterness and was very smooth and clean.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a deep brown with a cola like head.
Smells of light chocolate
taste is pretty plain, chocolate, light roasted grain, lactose
mouthfeel is ok, a little silky, not very creamy.
I could throw down a bunch of these. Not because they taste great, but there is nothing offensive at all about his. noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
On tap at Reggie’s. Promised a lot, but didn’t see things through to the end, as enigmatic as that sounds.
Ar: Raisins, chocolate, liquorish and possibly a bit of mango? Ap: Creamy white head, pours a dark brown and decent head retention w/ pretty gravel lacing. Fl: Raisins, chocolate milk, molasses and the most evanescent hoppiness that peeks through without remaining pinned down. Tasty beer that lacked the oomph of FFF’s Moloko. jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2009
(bottle). Pours a black color. Small tan head. Malt and molasses aroma. Strong malt taste (slightly burnt) with light creaminess. Smooth finish with slight bitterness. Soft carbonation. MrMugs (30) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased at Corral Liquors, Granite City,Il.
Pours mahogany with a 1/4 inch beige head.
Minimal aroma of coffee/chocolate.
More flavor than I would have thought with the mild aroma.
It feel a little thin and a bit more carbonated than I would like. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2009
12 oz bottle from By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA. Pours the shade of coffee with a moderate tan head and some solid lacing. Mostly chocolate in the nose, with light bits of coffee and a slight nuttiness. Taste is all chocolate creaminess with a hint of coffee. One of the smoothest finishes I’ve ever experienced.
