4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout Nitro pours black with a creamy, light tan head. As I swirl the beer, lacing catches the side of the glass, and only slowly slides back down. Lots of aromas mix together in this one. There are roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and smoked meat. The taste follows suit quite nicely. Milk Stout Nitro is very smooth and creamy. The body is somewhere between average and full, probably a bit closer to full. The carbonation feels quite low.
Overall: I really can’t ask for anything more in a milk stout. Smooth, creamy and full of great roasted flavor. It’s almost like drinking alcoholic chocolate milk, but so much better. I highly recommend this!

Flaske @ home. Mild og grei øl. Kanskje litt kjedelig. Sjokomelk for vaksne.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another American classic I had yet to taste, some kind of hybrid between classic oatmeal stout and classic milk stout, from Colorado. Loose and irregular yet creamy, deep yellowish beige head, retaining well around the edges and leaving a tan veil over the beer; colour is a very dark mahogany brown, approaching black but still translucid around the edges. Aroma has notable smokiness at first, smoked herring even and reminding me more of a smoked porter than a milk stout; this smoky accent fades away in warming up, when the bouquet becomes notably sweeter, via impressions of walnuts, wet leather, black peppercorns, coffee grounds, cigar ashes, to a lot of dark chocolate gaining strength, dried leaves, caramel candy, dried stonefruit, raisins and candied dates. Dryish and actually fairly neutral onset, some restrained dried fruit sweetness, mineral accents, soft carbo as expected and creamy mouthfeel due to the lactose but still a relatively thin body for a 6% ABV stout; umami flavours more prevalent after the first sip, very light sourish touch; rounded, nutty and toasted maltiness and more chocolatey roasted bitterness in the end, but everything remains gentle and soft. The smoky accent from the aroma, where it seems to fade away after a while, returns retronasally but only faintly so. Finish is juicy and malty, with the dark chocolate bitterness lingering on the root of the tongue, along with a touch of leafy hops, resulting in a bittersweet ending. This is a fine stout, but I must admit I expected more creaminess and a thicker lactose flavour. Glad I tasted this.

Very creamy. I’m not usually a big fan of stouts, but this wasn’t too bad. Even after it sat for a while and got a little warm, it was still good.
