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.

My first Milk Stout,/Sweet Stout/Left Hand.. And I feel I started out on a good note. It pours nice and mildly-thick. Huge tastes and feels of thick cream throughout the taste and palate. It smelled fantastic. Very unique.

(Draft @ HOU FS DT): Pours a dark black color, average tannish head, lasting. Weak aroma(could be the smoky atmospere), hard to describe. Coffee, chololately, water taste, creamy. Clean aftertaste. Light tasty drink. Not too complex, but good.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 Draft at Nama. Two finger head, not much aroma - maybe overpowered by restaurant food smells. Mostly opaque ebony with copper highlights. Not as much body as most stouts, not much sweetness in my tasting either. Mostly coffee on the beginning and end, but balanced out nicely.

I didn’t realize there are so many milk stouts out there. This is the only one I’ve tried, so perhaps discount my opinion, but this is one of the most delicious beers I’ve had. It drinks ridiculously smooth. It feels heavy (creamy) as you drink it, but doesn’t ’fill you up’ as you’d think it would. Most stouts, I’d rather drink with food. Not necessary with this one.

Left Hand’s stout pours a dark brown, murky body with an average, fizzy light-brown head. Fair lacing behind a fully diminishing body. Aroma is of toasted/roasted coffee malts and medicine. Initial taste is moderately sweet, giving way to a light bitter finish with an average duration. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery texture not wanted in a stout, with soft carbonation. Yummy aroma, very satisfying finish, but not true to the style. Reviewed on October 27th, 2006.

(bottle)poured into a pint. pours dark with light tan frothy head that is not too thick. has a malty, milky aroma. taste is slightly sweet on the front, light in the middle, and a milky finish. on the front palate it has a little tingle, some carbonation that hits the front of your tongue, and it is not too thick. has a slightly milky aftertaste. This is a good milk stout, in a side by side with duck rabbit’s version this one holds up better. it is smoother and cleaner.

Dark black color, short lasting foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee. Semisweet chocolate and coffee flavors. Slight tang in the finish. I don’t care too much for this characteristic in Milk Stouts, even though it is standard. Overall a smooth easy drinking beer. Personally I don’t enjoy the "sour milk" lactose-ness.

12 oz bottle, bottled date says "12". What is that? 1912? December? The 12th day of a mystery month? Anyway, pours into my English pint glass almost black with a beige head. Big roasty nose, coffee and chocolate. Somewhat sweet flavor, Roasty coffee, semisweet chocolate, light lactic notes. Very smooth body, medium full. Sweet milk chocolate finish. Well done!

Pours black with no head. Aroma of roasted malts and milk sugar. Heavy beer! Taste is bitter upfront with a sweet caramel-like finish. This could be your only meal of the day.
