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: MAR 6, 2008 nice dark pour...initial smell of cigarettes and burnt cream with hints of caramel. flavor is malty with some hints of chocolate and a light burnt/coffee after taste. a little thin but good overall7/4/7/2/15=3.4

fresh bottle reveals aromas of cocoa, wood and vanilla cream. flavors of wood, nuttiness, chocolate and lacto. nice astringency helps to break up the smooth texture. 7/4/7/3/16=3.7

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2007
Black with a weak red hue and a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of chocolate and roasted malt and perhaps a very light sourness, but not like the hard-core milk stouts - nice. The flavour has a nice sweetness, notes of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet coffee and a very discrete sourness and a light bitterness. The body is quite full in spite of the relatively low ABV - really nice. 2391

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours black with garnet highlights and a creamy, tan head. The nose is of chocolate, coffee and cream with a sour lactose note. Medium-bodied and creamy, it feels soft on the tongue and concludes with dry/roasted and lightly metallic notes. The flavor is of milk chocolate, coffee and cream with a lightly dry and sour finish. I really enjoy a good sweet stout, and this beer is no exception.

islay (1998) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Strong, woody, milky/creamy, tarry, roasted coffee aroma. Pours a shiny, very dark brown color (nearly black) with an amber hue and a small to moderate amount of short-lasting, light tan head. Produces moderate lacing. Sharp, roasted malt taste. Creamy flavor. Not exactly sweet, but certainly not particularly dry. Roasted-bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Overall, Left Hand Milk Stout is a pleasant but not outstanding brew. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

Had on tap at Issac Newtons. Black/dark amber in color. Malty, roasted, milky sweetness smell. Basically the same in taste too. Not a bad stout
