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.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Bottle. Sweet and spicy milk chocolate nose. Very dark, Lacing off-white head. Chocolate, light cofee, spices (cinnamon, allspice), restrained milk acid, roast, a bit salt, enough hops in the finish - quite delicious mix. Medium to light, creamy body. Mhh, my kind of beer.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and strong chocolate and coffee and extremely sweet. Flavor starts out very sweet and rich like chocolate milk, but gets a little more bitter in the finish, which creates a nice contrast, like moving from milk chocolate to bitter chocolate. Medium-full body, and a nice creamy mouth feel. Definitely Left Hand’s best beer, and a really enjoyable stout. Bonus: It went really well with a glass of whiskey :)

Bottle. Pour dark chocolate brown with a small beige thin lacing head. Smell roasty chocolate notes with hints of caramel and coffee. Taste bittersweet with coffee and chocolate lingering.

A good beer, though not the finest milk stout I’ve tasted. You can’t go wrong with this, but there is better, perhaps for the same price. The taste was strong and slightly hoppy without being bitter.

Ultimately underwhelming. I had looked forward to this beer since a couple friends raved about it after trying a pint at Tapwerks in OKC. Dark pour, two finger mocha crown. Aroma is dry, roasty, heavy notes of coffee. After that it becomes very mediocre. Thin mouthfeel for such a dark beer, coffee laden flavor with medium sweetness and mild acidity. Not a whole lot of bang for the buck on this beer.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours pitch black with a small tan head and a sweet aroma. The taste is sweet and the mouthfeel creamy, the finish is a tad bitter, but mainly sweet too. I don’really like this, it is a bit too sweet for me

Tasted 7/8/08. Draft from The Stables, St. Louis, MO. Dark hued and opaque. Bubbled, clinging layer of beige head. Aromas of cocoa and milk chocolate. Mild coffee nose. Full bodied with a nice bitter/sweet meld. Vanilla and coffee. Toffee and earthy. Mild hop palate. Low coffee acidity and vinuous. Good rolling palate. Tangy even with the lactose. Mild spice and toasty. This is a standard for the style!
