look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights. About 1/2" of khaki head forms; average retention and lacing.

Smell: Smells of some roast, pretty strong dark fruit character, maybe some florals, and some soapiness.

Taste: The taste is different. A fair number of dark fruits, with maybe a hint of roast. Some florals on the back end. Definitely not what I was expecting, but still okay. More roast and creaminess is needed here.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light-medium bodied, with quite a bit of carbonation; very smooth and creamy. Overall, not my favorite milk stout I have tried by any stretch. Had heard some good things about this but not super impressed.

This was my first time trying anything from Left Hand, and I was quite pleased. Just from looking at it after poured into a pint glass, I could tell it was going to be a creamy and smooth blend. I couldn't pick up too much of a scent, but the flavors that came through were that of a light malt roast, and wasn't too rough on the tongue. Very sweet and tasty brew, and overall a strong milk stout.

I had a sweet pint of this exciting concotion at the "Spotty Dog" in Hudson, NY. It was a very creamy, sugared, milk, dense stout who's flavor resonated in my mouth for hours after the pint was gone. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and would absolutely have another pint if I came across it in the future. A+
