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.

Slayer85 (1051) - 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.

Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted notes, coffee, earth notes, and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is a smooth milky chocolate with some bitter roasted notes in the finish. Other than the bitter roasted notes the beer is sweet in the delivery of its other flavors. Very solid malt body.

12 oz bottle. Probably one of my favorite easily obtainable Stouts. Pours a deep dark brown/light black with some red hues around the edges with an average size very light tan head. Aroma mainly of chocolate milk but hidden underneath are some coffee and slight tar notes. Palate is a little thin and has a little to much carbonation but I still like this stuff. Flavor shines when it’s cold and doesn’t quite have that "wow" taste this one warm that I’m used to. Flavor is still very nice of mild chocolate and slight coffee. If this was fall I could easily throw a six pack back while sitting outside listening to music.
