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.

Bottle. .. great roasty aroma, lots of malt.. .. Black pour with creamy tan head. . .Bold roasty flavor up front with sweet, malty finish. .. Thick sticky body (milky?) that coats the tongue and makes the flavor last. Light carbonation. .. A very tasty stout, well done.

I liked this - it tasted like sucking the teat of an alcoholic cow. Creamy smooth, beefy aroma, choc + coffee all the way. Drying bitter finish.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2007
Bottle. Small tan fizzy head (fully diminishing) into black opaque body. Sweet chocolate aroma with coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is initially is moderately sweet and finishes with a mild bitterness-also duration is long in length. LIght to medium bodied. Dry textured. Average carbonation. Not a bad sweet stout but not for me.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
Last beer sampled at Cellar’s LexLarp in St Paul. History - The brewery was founded by Dick Moore and Eric Wallace in 1994. Originally wanted to be called Indian Peaks Brewing Company. Since Indian Peaks was a brand name used by 5280 Roadhouse Brewery of Littleton, CO, and Rock Bottom brewpub of Boulder, CO and the name was changed to Left Hand in honor of Chief Niwot. Niwot in Arapahoe means “Left Hand” This beer pours an almost opaque black brew with a tan head. Aroma of roasted barley malt, nuts and chocolate. Taste is like smooth bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Clean finish and smooth.

Pours a dark opaque brown color with a tan head. Has a nice hint of chocolate, and lactose taste like milk in the back of your throat. Has a sweet finish on the palate.
