Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with long lasting, creamy, beige head. Aroma is of bready, toasted malt with hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Body is medium and smooth. Burned toast, bready malt, brown sugar, milk chocolate and dark fruit fill the moth. Finish is medium, bitter-sweet. Very nice stout.

A – Pretty much jet black in the glass, pours with some translucence though. Head is creamy and medium height. Lacing is somewhat thin, yet presentable.

S – Bitter dark chocolates. Dark roasted malts. Some light coffee notes. No sweetness here.

T – Creamy, dry and roasted. Nice chocolate and coffee notes as well, overall pretty bitter.

M – The nitro aspect is nice, it cuts through the bitter notes and makes for a nice creaminess. Overall it's a little bit light.

O – Good not great stout, I applaud Left Hand for the nitro bottle, definitely nice, but still lacks greatly to a nitro tap.
