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.

I Scored this brew at the local health food store in SD a while back. Blackness to it with a thick eggshell head. Aroma was of chocolate and raisons. Decent brew/

Pours dark black with a thin mocha brown head. Smells and tastes mainly of coffee, with an unique taste I assume is the lactose. Not quite on par with the best sweet stouts I have had (Sam Smith’s Oatmeal and Rogue’s Chocolate) but definitely good and unique - will buy again.

Dark black in color with a great off white head that stays thinned out like a sheet, but stays built up around the edge of the glass. Smells sweet, like coffee. Tastes like coffee, light chocolate, typical stout flavors, but you can definitely find the milk in this one also..not typical. Mouthfeel is very much like milk, I almost forgot that I was drinking beer. I think its just a mental thing, considering the commercial description says that its "milk sugar", in the beer. It is a good spin on a stout. I liked this, and you should too.

This is a quality brew, but not my favourite from Left Hand. If you like stouts, try this one, ’cos it’s different. I have to disagree with the guy that says he could drink a lot of these though (I mean if he means in one sitting). Because first of all (1) You can only drink so much milk and secondly (2) it’s a stout, and stouts tend to be quite filling. Anyway, I was fairly pleased with the brew, but did find the milky taste a bit overwhelming.

This beer was awesome. Other ratings don’t quite do it justice. The aroma and appearance weren’t spectacular, but the taste was different from any sweet stout i’ve ever had.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Pours like black creme fraiche. Not much on the nose at all. Full, rich nectar. So thick I almost choked. Flavors of tar, coffee, cocoa, mud, and some cool celery. Very lucious and mellow smooth. A dry style with a touch of sugar on the finish.

Pours a dark muddy brown with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted sweet malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows aroma very well with a strong dark chocolate prescence and a slight bitter-sweet finish.
