COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800’s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours black with garnet highlights and a creamy, tan head. The nose is of chocolate, coffee and cream with a sour lactose note. Medium-bodied and creamy, it feels soft on the tongue and concludes with dry/roasted and lightly metallic notes. The flavor is of milk chocolate, coffee and cream with a lightly dry and sour finish. I really enjoy a good sweet stout, and this beer is no exception.

islay (1067) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Strong, woody, milky/creamy, tarry, roasted coffee aroma. Pours a shiny, very dark brown color (nearly black) with an amber hue and a small to moderate amount of short-lasting, light tan head. Produces moderate lacing. Sharp, roasted malt taste. Creamy flavor. Not exactly sweet, but certainly not particularly dry. Roasted-bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Overall, Left Hand Milk Stout is a pleasant but not outstanding brew. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

Had on tap at Issac Newtons. Black/dark amber in color. Malty, roasted, milky sweetness smell. Basically the same in taste too. Not a bad stout

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 9, 2007
Bottled. A black beer with some reddish reflections, with a big and persistent light brown head. Excellent aroma of milk chocolate and roasted malt; I liked it very much. Also the flavour is really nice with strong notes of milk chocolate again and some roasty, coffeish and sugary notes. The body is quite light and the aftertaste is sweet. A very nice beer from Left Hand brewery. Maybe a more stouty palate and a longer aftertaste and this beer would become perfect.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 Bottle (35 cl) from Systembolaget. Dark brown with no head. Creamy milk chocolate aroma with some hops. Medium bodied and smooth, and well balanced.
