BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Left Hand Brewing Company
Colorado, United States
lefthandbrewing.com

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.

Having a glass of this on draught with some BBQ has been one of my favorite drinking experiences. Very smooth and creamy. Wonderful head. Not bitter at all. I would get it again.

They aren't kidding when they say pour hard, like go vertical with that bottle. The smell is this beers best characteristic and consists of sharp chocolate notes and vanilla. Taste is of bakers chocolate, faint coffee, and hops. The hops are much stronger than I was anticipating and are pretty prominent for a stout. I didn't care for the mouth feel of this one as it was quite watery. Overall this is a decent beer and would be a good choice for someone just getting into stouts. Not bad at all just not great either for my tastes.

I really like the mouth feel of this beer. It pairs well with food or works as a stand alone beer for socializing. I have only had it on tap but really enjoy it.
