I like Wynkoop's milk stout, though it's not as good as Left Hand's. Great color and smoothness, but just not quite the depth of flavor. Still a pretty good beer though.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured black with a big creamy mocha colored head that stuck around for a while and left splashy lace.

S- No aroma really, light cream notes.

T- Dominant cream flavor with light hints of chocolate, vanilla, and marshmallow.

M- Pretty creamy up front, lighter bodied, and a little watery on the finish.

O- Everything about this stout was light including unfortunately the flavor and aroma. Not a look of that milk sugar or lactose taste of other milk stouts and no roasty character at all.

Labeled can. Basic and clean label. Pours a dark brownish black, like a dark cola. Huge brown head that leaves thick frothy lacing. Slow dissipation.
Aromas of very light malt. Literally all that's there, no coffee, no sweetness. Just very neutral beer smell.

Taste starts watery, transitioning quickly to a really pleasant sweet stout. Barely roasted flavor, mostly light caramel and sweet cream. Exceptionally smooth, with a faint bitterness throughout that lingers in the background very lightly.

Super light bodied, smooth and creamy. Very drinkable.

Lack of aroma but otherwise a really good English style stout with creamy lactose. Price for 4 cans is very off putting though. 11 bucks? At least make it a 6 pack

12 oz can. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet grainy lactic chocolate with a little roast and vinous fruit.

The flavor is sweet lactic acidic chocolate with some roast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, an OK roasty acidic milk stout.
