COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800s. 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 benefitssorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year round stout.

Pours very dark brown with a dark tan head that is not as thick as hoped for. Good lacing though. Aroma is toasty malts and chocolate. It definitely delivers in the sweet department but fails to have the body to back it up. Overall, pretty ok.

Smells of a potent caramel. A nice and dark stout color. Almost no head. Flavor is chocalte and caramel with a nice milk like follow through. A residual bitterness thats not too sharp. Nice, slightly stunted, stout. Slightly smoky.

Very good stout, dark and sweet but not overpoweringly smooth. The lactose aftertaste is a bit off.

Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head floating around. The aroma is very nice; sweet milky notes, some chocolate and roasted, nutty aromas. The taste is excellent; very easygoing milk chocolates and perfectly mixed in roasted malts, some light coffee and an excellent very creamy mouthfeel. I could drink this style every morning for breakfast, though, I doubt I’d get anything done. Very good.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown/black with virtually no head or lacing. Aromas of sweet roasted malts, vanilla and some caramel. Flavors of sweet oats, some chocolate and vanilla. If the palate was a little bigger this would be one killer everyday beer. I think of this as a good intro to stouts for someone looking to try the style.

Bottle. Pours dark black with off-white head. Smells of chocolate and maybe coffee bitterness. Tastes like chocolate milk. Yum.

Left Hand Milk Stout well represents a Sweet Stout style, medium body, dry, drinkable, sweet with undertones of bitter chocolate.
