Brew Review-Left Hand Milk Stout

Left Hand Brewing Company is based out of Longmont, Colorado.  This fact makes it often difficult for us here in D.C. to find their tasty wares.  Bad news.

Over the Christmas break I was able to visit family in Chicago.  Chicago is close enough to Colorado to receive Left Hand’s beers.  Good news.

I tried their Milk Stout.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big stout fan.  There aren’t many out there I truly dislike.  As far as milk stouts go, the Duck Rabbit has been my staple.  The Left Hand version definitely puts up a good fight with the Duck Rabbit.

The Left Hand Milk Stout pours a very dark brown, nearly black color.  It has a mild malty aroma with a little of that sour milk scent that you get from the added lactose.  The flavor is perfect for a milk stout.  Malty and creamy with a little chocolate and bitter coffee.  The finish was very mild and slightly bitter.  A solid beer.
