The first time I tried this beer I nearly cried tears of joy. Simply the best milk stout I've had to date. It had the smoothest feel and the taste was incredible. I prefer this version to their nitro version which is also a good beer. If you're a fan of milk stouts and want one that will rock your socks off, this is a stout that you must try.

Smooth as silk. Nice complex flavors and not overly burnt.

Malty, milky, not too sweet. A solid but unspectacular brew. Would definitely buy again, but wouldn't go out of my way to acquire.

Pours with a small, light brown head. Is black in color. The aroma of roasted malts is in abundance with a hint of chocolate. The initial taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, and milk. Hops finish the taste with the roasted malts continuing until the end. A truly amazing beer.

Absolutely superb milk stout by Left Hand. Rich, balanced and creamy with malt and cocoa notes. A very mildly sweet finish. Heavy bodied with some moderate lacing. Virtually no foam which is about my only disappointment. Extremely drinkable.

I love this stuff and can't get enough of it. I'm lucky enough to know someone who works at Left Hand and have been to the brewery to sample all of their beers. But the Milk Stout is by far my favorite.

While I hoping to get more out of this for a stout, it is a solid beer.

It is a very average beer. It isn't bad, it just isn't that memorable either.

This beer was very good but not as good as the other left hand stout. This one was a little bitter.

Not my style of beer but good. Espresso notes, finished clean and lingered on the pallet nice. Not bad but not my style.

Kind of watery compared to other stouts. Smell and look is very similar to most stouts out there on the market. Tastes sweeter than most stouts, but I kinda wish it wasn't as watery. I feel if it was a tad bit thicker the sweetness would have worked better

Was everything I look for in a beer. Thought the smell didn't do it justice but I don't like beer because of the way it smells. Perfect for my tastes. Will definitely bug them to get it to WV.
