Very solid, sweet deliciousness. Fairly light, extremely smooth, slight sugary taste. If you're told to drink your milk, this is where you should start. Better than chocolate milk. Wouldn't mind just a hint more of bitterness or burning taste, but nevertheless this goes down so easy, so smooth, so tasty. Perhaps my favorite beer from Left Hand.

12oz nitro bottle into a Founders imperial pint glass

A: Pours black with a half inch head of thickish creamy brown foam, which settles to a permanent two centimeter cap.

S: Roasty and toasty malts, a little bit of roast coffee, and a hint at chocolate. If the nitro is supposed to mask the scent, it isn't doing a very good job.

T: Nice roast flavors and some light-medium roast coffee. Just a tad bit of sweetness hidden in there.

M: Creamy, creamy, creamy. Very smooth, silky, and slick. The nitro really works here.

O: This is what I always want Guinness to be like. The nitro makes this tasty beer very smooth and highly quaffable without being watery. This is an excellent choice for stout lovers or anyone who likes an easy drinking beer.

This is my go to milk stout. The offering in a Nitro bottle is a plus as I felt the end product poured into a glass, had more of a velvety milkshake mouthfeel. This beer is everything a milk stout should be, toasty and roasted dark malts with a balanced milk sugar sweetness with a lingering flavor of milk chocolate. C'mon what's not to like?
