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.

S - Deep roasted malts, coffee, milky.

T - Pretty pleasant malt flavor with some coffee and a sweet lactose note.

M - Very smooth and creamy, extremely drinkable. Good carbonation.

O - Nice version of a milk stout. Extremely drinkable and great stout characteristics. Cheers!

bottle into tulip glass

appearance: black with very small one finger tan head

smell: milk, cream, marshmellow, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate

taste: very upfront milk taste, licorice, dark chocolate, prominent roasted malt backbone

mouthfeel: has the mouthfeel more so of milk than beer, kind of weird but refreshing and unique

overall: very smooth and rich in flavor: will buy again. I had the NItro version..

Very delicious. Even better on nitro than the regular Left Hand Milk Stout. One of my favorite beers of all time, never have a problem tipping a few of these back. Also had the nitro in the bottle, not as good as on tap, but still has an amazing smooth and deep flavor to it.

Medium to slightly larger sized light brown head settles into a pretty healthy lacing above this clear dark brown to almost black colored stout.

Black licorice, rich roasted grain malts, and light sweet chocolate hints in the aroma of this beer.

Rich creamy milk chocolate, dark heavily roasted malts, with just a touch of sweetness in the taste.

Dryish creamy aftertaste with a lot of the dark milk chocolate and heavy malts lingering on with this full bodied Left hand offering.

Pretty tasty and I forgot to buy ice cream, I this would taste pretty good with a half scoop of French Vanilla floating in it.
