Picked up a 6 pack at Maria's Community Packaged Good Bar in Chicago for about 9.99. Had to do a double take, and even questioned if this was the Regular Milk Stout from Left Hand since the packaging was different. Once I revisited the pakaging information, I discovered that this was the first ever bottle nitro...SUPER NICE!
Bottle was fearsely poured into a Guiness pint glass. I was freaking out that it would overflow but it didn't. I was surprised on how quickly the foam collected and cascaded to the top. Once I let it settle (less than 60 seconds) I took my first whiff. Chocolate was immediately detected. TAste-sweet, lactose, chocolate...MMMM. Head retained an off white and brown color that held up to each gulp.
Very drinkable, awesome creamy head retention. I must have killed this six pack within a day or two. Go out and get it...I will definitely seek this out again and may not turn back to the regular milk stout. Cheers!

A - Poured very dark black had a thin tan head looked like soda foam. Great lacing rings left around glass.
S - Very sweet and honestly like milk chocolate.
T - Taste is great. Chocolate with vanilla undertones. Starts off creamy/milky and finishes a bit dry with a vanilla/caramel taste. So good.
M - Creamy, smooth, slightly below average carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Will definitely buy again

12oz bottle poured into a stout glass.
Pours nice and black, with little head that dissipates quickly.
Smells like sweet cream. Hint of coffee/toffee.
Tastes great. Creamy texture with a good amount of sweetness, but not overpowering. Subtle vanilla taste at first that is more noticeable on the finish. Slight coffee taste. I detect some slight spices, but don't know where that could be coming from.
Overall a very good beer. Bought a six pack of this and I'm looking forward to seeing how this tastes in a few months.
