BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Left Hand Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Taking America Back. Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.

3.98/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Virtually black with a huge, thick, creamy tan head.

Smell: Sweet, creamy chocolate and coffee malt.

Taste: Subtle roasted malt and coffee, with a bit of burnt bitterness.

Mouthfeel: No carbonation, but not quite thick enough to balance that.

Overall: While I would like a bolder flavor and more body, this is nice.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 8/11/18; into a pint glass.
Appearance - a hard pour reveals a very dark brew with a thick, creamy tan head that cascades and leaves a slightly version of itself that settles in for the session. Leaves moderate lacing!
Smell - chocolate milk with a touch of coffee.
Taste - a buttery chocolate first sip with a robust coffee flavor rounding it out!
Feel - nitro, so a bit flat, with a creamy, buttery finish.
Overall - very solid offering, but I do prefer the non nitro version, as the flavor profile is more enhanced and the feel is more to my liking. I’m sure this is fantastic on tap!

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer pours black, and after an aggressive pour yields three inches of creamy tan head that leaves some nice lacing.

The smell is roasted malt and milk chocolate.

The taste is more dark chocolate with some black coffee in the finish.

Creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

This is a very good beer that received nitro treatment. The nitro enhances the mouthfeel but detracts from the flavor.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

The appearance is pitch black with an enormous creamy tan head from the nitro. The retention is eternal, and sheets of tan lacing are left behind.
The aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, cocoa powder, toast, vague dark fruits like black cherry and raisin, burnt grains, and earth.
The taste is chocolate milk, hints of sweetened coffee like mocha/latte, raisin, toast, vanilla, and slight earthy hop bitterness.
The mouthfeel is thick and creamy upfront, but tapers out to slightly watery on the finish.
Overall, a fantastic nitro stout. I still prefer the CO2 version, but this is excellent.

My favorite part is watching it settle after pouring. It's also super smooth!

Can was dated "Best by 6/16/2018", but not sure when that means it was actually canned; great use of nitrogen in this canned stout, the head on this beer is textbook and has staying power; really lacking in taste and aroma however
