In order to review this beer effectively the following review was written painstakingly with my left hand only.
Poured from a 12.oz bottle into a goblet.
I once saw a bumper sticker on the back of a car that simply had a red left hand on it encircled inside a white...circle. There was no lettering or detail other than the red left hand. It made me think of Left Hand Brewing Company and that might be a bumper sticker for said company. This made me want a sticker for my car to. And I hate bumper stickers. Really bad ones make me yell like I'm at a town hall meeting. I may have road rage. The reason I recognized the left hand as belonging to Left Hand Brewing was because of this beer, I enjoyed it so much that I now really like Left Hand Brewing and they make it to my recommendations for people getting into beer or looking for something new (from Mid-Missouri selections mind you).
Milk Stout pours nicely enough with very little head. There's head for a second but it quickly subsides, it's like the action in a Jane Austen novel; you think that something is going to happen but then you're left wondering why you haven't moved on to something else. The something else in this case would be the lacing that is left on my glass. The head subsides but the lacing keeps on rockin'. The smell is very faint, if I have the swine flu I'm going to be sad and have to put off reviewing beer but laughing as I miss classes. (Note: College classes. Would a high school kid waste his time reviewing beer when there's Vanessa Hudgens pictures to jerk to?) (Hopefully Disney doesn't squash that joke.) What little smell there is is moderately sweet and a little milky, but it has that bite to it that stouts do. I forgot to mention to color - it looks like a stout. It looks stoutish in the light, stoutish in the glass and stoutish if you swirl it. The taste of this is kind of sweet, with a little hint of chocolate and coffee. The bitterness of the stout is toned down by the sweetness and it blends together really well (and tastes great with ice cream). Milk Stout is very easy to drink and has a great mouthfeel. That says nothing really.
In order for me to review this beer effectively please note that the opening line was a lie.
