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.

Hard pour from the can into shaker pint glass yields an opaque black body with a creamy tan head. Excellent staying power.

Scent is chocolate, coffee, roasted notes. Vanilla. Mocha.

Taste: Milk chocolate, mocha cappuccino flavors. Cream. Vanilla. For all it's dessert beer tendencies this is still highly balanced and in no way cloying or overly sweet. Caramel malt. Slightest kiss of hops in the finish.

Mouth is silky, creamy and voluptuous. Sensuous? No, beers are sensual. People are sensuous. (Do I still want to show her my cucumber?)

Drinkability is fantastic. Want another right away.

Probably my favorite non Imperial or high alcohol stout.

At first pour, this seems like a classic nitro brew– tons of head (which we LOVE) and super dark. Upon first sip, I was taken aback. The flavor was delicious! Mocha notes with a smooth mouthfeel, felt almost like a chocolate/coffee beer. Luxurious mouthfeel. The hops are present, but lowkey, coming in at the end of the sip. A slightly sweet beer, would pair excellently with churros and chocolate. Would be tough to pair with dinner, though. More of a dessert/special occasion beer.

Aggressively poured into pint glass, beer cascades beautifully with head growing to just under an inch. Black body and golden tan head. Great head retention and lacing.

Strong coffee and vanilla smell, just a hint chocolate.

Mocha and caramel malt. Sweet finish but not over the top. As beer warms, chocolate, milky flavor starts to comes out more.

Incredibly creamy, silky feel. Very soft on the tongue, medium bodied.

Very nice beer. Delicious after dinner, one of the best in style. Next time will probably let beer sit out for 5 min or so before serving to warm just a touch. Definitely worth picking up.

Pours black with an inch and a half thick khaki head that leaves excellent lacing. Smells and tastes of roasted malts, caramel, vanilla, coffee and milk chocolate with an additional note of cream in the taste. Medium bodied for the style with appropriate carbonation, silky mouth feel. Much better than the non-nitro version.
