Beer Review 30 // Left Hand Milk Stout

Today we get to look at one of my favourite Stouts I would regularly drink if given the chance. I first tried this beer at Mother Kelly's my regular bar back in the UK and fell in love with it. Since moving to Canada though it has become some what a rarity (thanks trade/alcohol laws). But I do manage to get my hands on some during random trips to the states, but then it has to compete for space in the car along side never before had beers (Curse of the Beer Collector). What I can guarantee is cans/bottles of this beer don't last long around me, so let us jump straight in:


Details

Name: Milk Stout
Style: Sweet Stout
Country: ColoradoUSA.
Price: $3 - Bottle
ABV: 6%

Commercial Fluff:
"Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful"
Own Opinion

SightThis bottle pours a dark rich brown almost black colour. Looks  rich and creamy and has a nice big light brown head. Looking good so far. Side note that nice head soon disappeared.

AromaThe aroma is smooth and pleasant with hints of milk chocolate, roasted malts and a tiny bit of burnt coffee. The smell alone makes my mouth water,

Taste: Ticks all the boxes for me:
Coffee..Check.
Roasted malts..Check.
Vanilla..Check.
It's like a fancy milkshake. I just want more please.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

No surprise with that answer! This is a beer I would be happy to drink everyday. What a tasty drink, better let they even make this beer in a Nitro form too. Think tighter bubbles that lead to an even more creamier mouthfeel. I will try to get one on a future visit to the USA for a review. 

As always leave me a comment if you have tried it and thanks for reading.

Time for something completely different. Been reading a lot of sci-fi comics and graphic novels but I wanted a bit of a palette cleanser, so...
