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.

Nitro version of the milk stout. So it stills is a dark, sweet, and roasty beer. Medium body and very tasty. The nitro version is a little creamier.

Good year round dark stout. Sweet aroma. Taste of roasted malt, toffee, all rounded out with the sweetness from the milk sugar.

Pours very dark. Almost no head. Very malty almost no hops. Strong dark chocolate and coffee notes. Smooth and sweet. Lives up to the "milk" stout. Good beer.

ManVsBeer (8494) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016
Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough as Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro. Black with an extremely thin head. Has a very smooth texture but certainly understated with its roasted malts. Its aroma is very light, and there’s only a small sweetness in its taste.

OrthoDoc (172) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours a really nice jet black color. Chocolate and sweetness on the nose. Taste is smooth milk chocolate with a clean finish. Not a fan of the nitro. Gives it a smooth mouthfeel but also make it taste 'flat' for me. Almost like a flat soda like effect. Maybe needs a little more bitterness or carbonation. Not bad at all just want to try without the nitro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
