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. Black with small tan head. Coffee, dark chocolate, malt. Decent stout, but thin and less creamy than other milk stouts.

Black pour with reddish tint. Thin tan head sticks around about a minute. Interesting aroma...relatively sweet due to a sugary malt scent, and also some roasted coffee accents. Good flavor...mostly coffee, but light coffee is very sweet and somewhat creamy (though not heavy on the palate). Some milk chocolate flavors also in there. I’m finding some tobacco notes in the background as well. Probably the best offering I’ve had to date from the Left Hand folks. On a side note, would concur that this is a stout that can be enjoyed on all but the hottest evenings due to its ’light’ characteristics

Poured black with a 1 inch head that dissipated fairly quickly. Couldn’t really tell much from the aroma but it was following a Celebrator from Ayinger so there you go. It was a little thinner and more watery than I was expecting but it was a pretty good sweet stout. It was comparable with the Sam Adams Cream Stout but maybe a little more cofferlile in its finish. I will give this another shot and probably rerate it. I was expecting a little more after reading some of the ratings.

12 oz bottle. Pours black-ish brown with a tiny white head. Strong coffee aroma... my first Left Hand beer and thus far I am not disappointed. Taste is also pretty fantastic... a lot of coffee, dark chocolate, milk? Ha. Don’t put it past me to imagine something because of the beer’s name, but there is definitely a milky sort of creaminess in this that is wonderful. Unfortunately, the creaminess is in the taste and not the body... which is really the only negative thing I have to say about this brew. Just a little thin. S’ok though, still a new favorite for me.

12oz bottle bottled on 6/29/07. Pours dark brown/black with a tiny white head that all but disappears quickly. Aroma is nice milk chocolate, roastiness, malted milk balls, a wee bit of tobacco. Pleasant overall. Taste is rich, wet tobacco, dark chocolate, roasty. Medium bodied with a milk chocolate finish. This is pretty damn good if not exceptional. Pretty exemplary of the style.

Bottle. Pours an almost opaque dark brown. Creamy light tan head, a little lacing. Rich roast aroma with a chocolatey hint. Flavor is full roasted malts with a rich sweetness. Full bodied, smooth with a dry finish.

Draught. Very mild nose, light chocolate. Opaque black, thick off-white head. Flavor is really nice, deep milk chocolate with a touch of coffee in the finish. Very smooth and creamy palate. A successful stout.

draft at clark street alehouse. smelled initially like miller lite, perhaps because it came after surly darkness. tastes reasonably good though. very creamy, even for a milk stout. milky, chocolatey and very satisfying. body was smooth, and i thought it filled its niche perfectly like a spotted cow.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2007
A near-black beer with an average light brown head. Cocoa, sweet dark malts and mild coffee to the nose. Quite sweet-flavored; lactose, lots of malts and notes of sweet licorice, roast and milk-chocolate. Smooth texture. Good body. Dries up in the finish. A nice one. (Bottle @ RBNAG’07)
