I love this stuff and can't get enough of it. I'm lucky enough to know someone who works at Left Hand and have been to the brewery to sample all of their beers. But the Milk Stout is by far my favorite.

While I hoping to get more out of this for a stout, it is a solid beer.

It is a very average beer. It isn't bad, it just isn't that memorable either.

This beer was very good but not as good as the other left hand stout. This one was a little bitter.

Not my style of beer but good. Espresso notes, finished clean and lingered on the pallet nice. Not bad but not my style.

Kind of watery compared to other stouts. Smell and look is very similar to most stouts out there on the market. Tastes sweeter than most stouts, but I kinda wish it wasn't as watery. I feel if it was a tad bit thicker the sweetness would have worked better
