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.

12/28/2007: Left Hand Milk Stout has a clear, dark brown color with a foamy brown head. This beer smells like black coffee with a heavy dose of creamer in it. There is also a note of smei-sweet or dark chocolate in the back. The flavor is pretty sweet and has lots of milk and semi-sweet chocolate characteristics, roasted malts, lactose, and creamed coffee. It finishes great with lots of smooth, rich chocolate with a hint of espresso at the very end. The body of this beer is medium and it too is quite smooth on the palate and goes down nice and quick. There is some stickiness on the lips. Another solid beer from Left Hand and a pretty flavorful and good Milk Stout overall. This beer probably has a wider appeal than the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/left-hand-black- Hand Black Jack Porter due to its sweetness and distinct chocolate flavors.

12 fl. oz. bottle (Bottled on 07 12 06) from West Side Liquors and Wine Shop in West Harrison, Ohio. Rating #684 for this beer...

ilovedarkbeer (2379) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pours a chocolate brown color with a small tan head that quickly turns to nothing. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, milk?, and chocolate. Taste is much the same and feels smooth and a bit watery. Not the best beer, but decent because this is one of the few sweet stout that does not over do the sweetness. Mouth feel is medium, semi acidic and finish is short.

Bottle from utobeer via cgarvieuk. Aroma is sweet choclate malt. Taste is similarly sweet choclate malt, hints of floural hop, but very choclaty and good carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (8200) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2007
Thick dark beige head, leaving lace over black beer with ruby highlights. Sweet liquorice nose, jap , bakery smell and dark malts. Lightly smokey flavour, cigarette ash, underlying sweet & dark malts + lactose sweetness. Sticky sweet aftertaste, light bodied. Not a bad milk stout - for the amateurs. Is this really brewed in Colorado??? It even has Dutch on the EU label.

Draught @ Taco Mac. Good milk stout but I like Mackeson xxx better. Nice flavors of sweet and bitter but not the best I have had.

MrBunn (2523) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium/small head. Aromas are sweet and have notes of roasted malt, cream, vanilla, etc. Flavor is heavily sweet and pleasant, but lacks any interesting plot development. A bit of a brown sugar and sweet chocolate is pleasant.

DrPiva (96) - Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Very smooth with almost imperceptible hops flavoring. As a black coffee lover this is a great beer. Creamy with very little carbonation makes drinking them too easy – the 5.3% catches up quickly. A step-down from Mackeson in intensity but an awesome beer.

kringlan (20) - Falun, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2007
Black/dark brown with reddish reflections. Small off-white head. Good lacing. Sweet aroma of chocolate, nuts coffee and milk. Lively palate. Quite watery i.e. not very stouty. Not a lot of aftertaste; the little there is is sweet. Flavor of chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, filmjölk (Swedish equivalent to butter milk). Actually , this is probably what a “coffee-with-milk-drinker” would like. I think this beer would make an excellent accompaniment to some chocolaty desert.

redish dark brown with a tan head. creamy flavour sweet aftertaste. I actually tried this as a beer float with some nice vanilla ice cream and it was great!

Deep red/dark brown body with a compact light tan head. Milk chocolate on the nose, sweet in the taste, fairly smooth, hints of coffee. Enjoyable!
