Had a pint of this the other day at Hopcat in Grand Rapids. One of two Left Hand beers I tried on tap.
It pours black with a soft dirty white head. I looks thin, almost watery but there was some bubbly lacing down the sides of the glass. What I was impressed with was the roasted malt and creamy coffee aroma. Bigger than I expected. The taste is... milk like with hints of chocolate, toffee and of course roasted malt. This is a stout that has a sweetness to it but it isn't a fruity sweetness at all (as one would hope given that it's a milk stout) It feels like creamy milk in your mouth and goes down very, very smooth. Still, given the sweetness and the fact that it feels so much like dark, flavorful milk, I wouldn't want another one. But if you can drink a ton of milk then you could probably drink a ton of this since it isn't overly heavy. Overall it's a pretty solid beer. A good first milk stout (and it could be since they sell it in six packs everywhere now) that will not surprise you. It is exactly what it claims to be. This is the least confusing beer I have had in a while.
