A: This had some nice smoke coming out of the bottle for starters. The appearance is a nice dark color with some crazy carbonation in the middle but not throughout. And is complimented with a thin, creamy, mocha type head.
S: Instant chocolate and caramel malts in the aroma with a hint of lactose and yeast.
T: Flavor consists of chocolate, caramel, and some roasted malts. The finish is just like a stout with that dry, bready taste.
M: Mouth feel is very smooth like drinking chocolate milk or something of that nature.
O: This is only the 2nd Milk Stout I ever had and its just as good as any other stout. Really creamy and flavorful. This is a top notch stout and I would recommend it to anyone. Great beer!

12 oz. bottle picked up in Port Huron; no apparent freshness info. Served slightly chilled.
An aggressive pour yields a glass filled with an opaque, black-coloured liquid, topped with just over one finger's worth of dense, creamy, light beige-coloured head. Very nice retention, with gobs of sticky lacing - an attractive stout for sure. The aroma is rich and enticing, with notes of roasted malt, cocoa, mocha coffee and toffee. Nothing too fancy, but miles ahead of most of the nitro beers I've tried previously, which typically have very bland, subdued aromas.
Rich and creamy are the words of the day as far as this beer goes. The sip is initially dominated by a combination of milk chocolate, mocha and lactose sweetness, with a touch of roasted malts and toffee/caramel. Bittersweet finish, with a lingering milk sugar sweetness. Medium-bodied, with the sort of silky-smooth mouthfeel you'd expect from a nitro beer. The taste is definitely approachable, but it's so god damn sweet that I can't see myself wanting more than a bottle of this at a time.
Final Grade: 4.08, a solid A-. Left Hand has produced an exceptionally high-quality milk stout here. It's a little too saccharine to be something I'd consume on a regular basis, but to be fair this is not one of my preferred styles to begin with. It's still a tasty little beer that is well worth a try if you're curious, although I doubt it's very popular amongst the diabetic demographic.
