Had on nitro-tap at Sunswick 35/35 on 10/28/11 in Astoria, NY.
Review taken from notes.
This beer pours a dark brown color, that has some ruby hues to it. there is a 2-finger off-white head on it that looks really creamy. The head has awesome retention, and it leaves a bit sheet of thick lace behind. The nose was pretty faint overall. there were some toasted malt and toffee aromas. Also, there is a little bit of hop presence. The taste starts off with some toasted malt, toffee, and a bit of caramel. Those flavors are there, but they seem a bit watered down and there is a weird metallic flavor that I'm getting every now and then. There is also a mild hop flavor here. The finish leaves some lingering toasted malt and caramel sweetness. This has a medium body and smooth creamy carbonation. It goes down easy and has a really smooth feel to it. There is some toasted malt bitterness, and some dryness on the back end. This has pretty good drinkability. It goes down easy and the flavor is nice. overall, I think it is an alright beer. I would drink it again, but I don't know if I would pay for it. It's worth trying though. I'd like to try it regular instead of on nitro.

Bought a sixer at the local stop-n-steal for 10.49. After trying the Left Hand Milk Stout, I have very high expectations. Pours a deep copper, with thick cream colored head. Tremendous retention and lacing. Malty flavor, but balanced by citrusy hop finish. Not real biscuity like a Fat Tire. Overall a pretty good beer, but next time I'll grab the Milk Stout instead.
