BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Left Hand Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: English Sweet / Milk 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.

Exquisitely smooth smell, taste and feel with robust coffee and caramel notes. In the top 5 of my favorite porters and stouts.

As for a single-word description: Scrumptious.

Black as night, smells like it looks, with a taste that doesn't quite live up to the looks. Nevertheless tastes solidly above average, with a slightly funky aftertaste.

My go to stout, mild flavor and moderate ABV. Great mouth feel and smooth toasted malt with low IBU.

The instructions on the bottle infrom the drinker that they should "pour hard", uprighting the bottle. This proved sound advice, as the head produced was thick and creamy, without being so thick as to obstruct the flow whilst drinking. The aroma was pleasant, consisting of notes of chocolate and coffee. The dark, rich notes of roasted barley are accompanied by sweet oat and lactose notes, giving a well-rounded, smooth flavor. The hops lend a bit of a bitter taste to the brew, but it's neither unwelcome nor overpowering, as they give it a finish that leaves you wanting another sip. Overall, I'd purchase this again for sure - just make sure it's not served too cold, as I learned on my second bottle, or you'll find the head and aroma a bit lacking.

Nitro can into a pint glass. Pours dark with very slight highlights if held up to light. Nice tan head of foam and very decent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted coffee beans. Taste is similar. Sweet but not overwhelming. Feel was smooth and creamy. Goes down well without a lingering aftertaste. Over all one of Colorado's best. While I do enjoy Coors when it comes to stout I would have one of these instead. Much better in my opinion than Guinness Stout. A solid A+ for Longmount Brewery and products

The beer has tiny bubbles, and, poured straight into a glass, it is mesmerizing to watch them all float up in the glass. Taste is smooth as silk, chocolaty, but not too chocolaty. Drank two (unusual for me)!

Great head, very fine, creamy bubbles. Good flavor profile, slight coffee notes. Slightly weaker body than I would like.

Poured aggressively into a perfect pint, this beer quickly develops a nice thick, frothy, tan head that’s leads to a creamy mouthfeel. The head sticks around for the duration of the beer and leaves a nice lace on the glass wall. Chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of coffee make up the flavor profile with a subtlety sweet finish. This beer is easy to drink and the flavor doesn’t get old. Pour a glass and enjoy!

This is my favorite stout. A perfect drinking beer. I tend to lean to ports and stouts and this one is just about as perfect as an American milk stout gets.
