Left Hand Milk Stout pours from the glass as thick as syrup and as dark as night, with a very thin and quickly vanished tan head. Very little aroma comes from the beer.
The thickness carries over to the mouth feel. The flavor is definitely creamy, chocolatey, and slightly sweet - but balanced with a mild hops bitterness. It may be the best stout I've ever had.
Beer Advocate rates it an 88, or "good".
Left Hand Milk Stout is available at a number of Columbus area retailers. This particular bottle was purchased at Kenny Road Market, but I've seen it elsewhere.
My rating: 8/10
