12 oz brown bottle with some pretty cool artwork on the label. Poured this into a Tulip Pint glass, 'stout pint flass'

A - Typical dark stout like appearance. Slightly opaque appearing soft black in color with touches of ruby to dark brown hues. Pretty good head sits on top leaving good stick to the inside of this stout glass.

S - Very chocolate milk like aroma with some dark malt mixed within. Mocha style coffee graces the nose quite nice really sinking in the fact that this is a milk stout.

T - Semi coffee flavor that's quickly turned into sweet milk chocolate goodness. Nothing is really overdone in this flavor which is good when hitting those lactose sugarish notes. A good sweet flavor with a rich malt backbone.

M - smooth and creamy. Does its job of coating the mouth with its milky sweet texture. Very easy going, but it does have the "rich" factor even if at a minimum.

O - I've been told and read this is 'America's stout'. I'm not sure I'd go that far, but this is one of the best examples of its style you'll find and one that's easy to find at that. This is a real dandy of a stout and while Left Hand keeps to the basics of this style that's what makes it so good. Sometimes the good things don't have to be pounded with a high abv, but just crafted in a manner that sticks to a styles roots. That's what the Left Hand Milk Stout is all about. Something any of us can buy and left satisfied by the experience. If you are into milk stouts this is a top shelf creation. But unlike some sweeter stouts this one could be enjoyed by anyone.
