one of the better beers at dangerous man. its a milk stout for sure, no denying it, but unlike so many others, its not super thick and sticky sweet. i know thats part of the style, but i think a lot of brewers take it too far. left hand is definitely the standard setter for the style, one of the original popular ones and still one of the best. this has less body and a lot less sugar than that one, but has a similar smoothness. the chocolate aspect here is really well developed, with both milk chocolate and dark unsweetened cocoa aromas and flavors in the mix. i like the bitter chocolate aspect with the sweet lactose, thats a great combination. it makes the beer seem a little more dry, and gives it a clever balance. the lighter body and lower sugar are also nice, they help the beer be more drinkable and not too sturdy for warm weather. very well designed beer, the chocolate is a nice twist, and its not gimmicky sweet like some of the are these days.

750 ml crowler purchased at the brewery. L: Pours dark brown under a 2” tan head that recedes to a thick film in about 2 minutes. Has very fine bubbles and produces a lattice work of lace. S: Chocolate, light roast, faint dark fruit. T: Rich creamy chocolate, sweet but balanced by a light tartness, slight graininess and mild grainy astringency. Medium high malt, medium sweetness, balanced by light roast. Light hops. F: Very soft and creamy, full bodied to chewy. O: A rich, creamy milk stout. Like a chocolate dessert but backs off from being cloying or overstated.

Poured from tap into a clear pint glass at the Dangerous Man tap room.

Appearance: A deep brown/black opaque color with a creamy tan one-and-a-half finger tan foamy head. Foam fades slowly, leaving sticky foam trails on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Dark roasted malts and semi-sweet chocolate and coffee notes. Very little hops.

Taste: Oh yeah...creamy chocolate goodness and smooth smooth dark roasted malts. The lactose gives it that smooth and milky edge.

Mouth feel: slippery and creamy with medium carbonation. Finishes slick and smooth on the tongue.

Overall: This has been one of my favorite Dangerous Man brews to date. Perfectly sessionable and smooth. One of the best milk stouts I've ever had (and I've had a few). This gives the Left Hand Cholocate Milk Stout a real run for the money...and it might even be better. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I liked the 16 oz. pour line on the 20 oz. glass. Nice pour temperature for a stout. Medium dark brown head. Roasted malty chocolatey goodness on the nose. Slightly sweet but not thick on the tongue. This one goes down quite smooth; very sessionable.
