BEER INFO

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

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.

Smooth. No bubbly fizz mess. Amazing taste. Not too extreme on any flavor. Not bitter not tart not hoppy. Just delicious goodness.

Pours out like a Guinness with it surging from the bottom and into a creamy brown head about a finger wide. The head stays until the very bottom of the glass. It's dark and barely able to be seen through when put up to a light.

The smell has hints of coffee and chocolate.

Taste has a nice roasted maltiness with hints of coffee and a nice bitterness comparable to a cup of black coffee.

Feel is smooth and reminiscent of a Guinness.

Overall it's a very easy drinking beer that gets better as it warms.

Smooth and tasty. Almost too much so, could be more bold or robust in flavor

Presentation: 16 oz. can with a "best by date" printed on the bottom. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Pure black with a one finger tan colored head that sticks around until the end and leaves very good lacing that covers the entire glass.

Smell: It's not that aromatic. There's some hints of vanilla, coffee and roasted malts.

Taste: Brown sugar and coffee right up front with notes of vanilla, milk chocolate and roasted malts in the background.

Mouthfeel: Incredibly smooth and creamy. Full bodied with low carbonation (which is to be expected) but lots of that characteristic, thick nitro goodness. Somewhat cloying but not too much.

Overall: An already good stout that gets taken to another level by the nitro mouthfeel.

A: Pours dark brown/black with quite a small head that forms a full 5 seconds after the pour. Really strange. Head is tan, with good retention and lacing.

S: Smell is quite typical for a milk stout, you get lactose, chocolate milk, vanilla, a bit of coconut and maybe some leather. Straightforward and by the book.

T: The taste is much stronger than I expected from the smell. You get a deep chocolate milk flavor, with roasted notes of espresso, a ton of vanilla and coconut. Very coherent too. For the ABV, this is phenomenal.

M: Medium body with very smooth carbonation (well nitro in this situation) as expected. My bottle was VERY light on carbonation, I don't know if it is standard or no though. It feels a bit flat (and not that much nitro-like).

O: Well, this is is a fantastic beer, with great drinkability and a ton of flavor. It doesn't look the best and it doesn't have an amazing mouthfeel, but it really has great flavors and at the end of the day, it's what matters no?

Hands down the best stout I have had. They used to have this at the restaurant I work at and I got a sample platter and whole-lee shi-hit. It is just coffee I thought they had given me an espresso shot with a dash of baileys. If you put this on a starbucks cup everyone would definitely have a great start to their day.

Yucky. It’s the flat. I can’t handle the flat aspect of it.
