A- Very dark, light does passes through and I can see a slight brown color, great creamy milky white head lacing is about the best I've ever seen in a stout. Very impressed on the appearance, almost looks like a milk shake.
S- Heavy lactose smell with undertones of coffee chocolate and slight bit of hops.
T- Heavy on the lactose, finishes of semi sweet with hints of coffee, not overly sweet like some other stouts I've tasted but just enough to give you a great flavor. I can taste some hops and I think this is what causes the stout from being overly sweet.
M- Not overly creamy like I though it would be but still pretty milky and smooth.
D- Exceptional to say the least, when I'm not experimenting with specialty porters and stouts this will be my go to every day beer.

Reviewing on the lam here at work, so it'll be brief.
Looks good, dark brown with a little tannish head that sticks only enough to leave the barest of lace.
Smells like chocolate, straight up. Mmmm.
Tastes like it smells, only with a little hoppy afterglow that fails to cover the exuberant sweetness and chocolate. Out of balance, but that doesn't take away from its deliciousness.
A little watery on the feel, not bad. Pretty in keeping

Acquired via trade from jhammerly, so a big Thank you goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a very thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma has a strong burst of roasted coffee and dark malts along with some chocolate.
T: The taste is malty and very creamy with strong flavors of coffee and milk chocolate. Theres a nice touch of smokiness to it. The hops presence is very mild as you would expect. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Very smooth with a good amount of crispness, medium-to-heavy body, light carbonation, finish is clean for a style that is normally sticky.
D: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, slightly filling but find me a stout that isnt, nice kick, excellent representation of style. I normally dont get revved up about too many stouts, but this is definitely one of them. If were going to go with a beer in this style, Id certainly look toward this one as on of the first choices.

I bought a six pack of this when visiting Estes Park, CO. I had it cold, but not too cold.
A: Poured a nice, dark brown, almost black. Nice head but not too big.
S: Slight coffee, very pleasant.
T: Smooth and sweet. Tastes very similar to Left Hand Milk Stout but maybe slightly sweeter.
M: Very pleasant. Full.
O: Very nice beer. Very smooth and tasty. Perhaps slightly too sweet.

Out of bottle just a bit cooler than room temp. Poured into a pint glass. Slight creamy head that disappeared to thin layer with light lacing. Color is super dark brown. Almost no light passing through. Smell is awesome. Chocolate maltiness with a starbucks coffeehouse smell. Taste is good with same choc maltiness with hint of cream and breadiness. Overall a pretty good brew. Good mellow aftertaste.
