Left Hand "Milk Stout"
Sweet Stout (ABV 5.3%)

[Best served in an English pint}

Rating:3.9/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall 16/20

Poured a muddy dark brown with a very slight red hue. The light brown head was suprisingly small yet frothy, which dissapated quickly with only a small residue remaining allowing for a fair amount of lacing on the glass.The aroma was nice and robust with a moderatly strong scent of dark bread malts and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of milk chocolate, molasses and a strong coffee presence. It tasted lighty sweet and flavorful with molasses and chocolate notes from the onset, then ended mildly biiter-sweet with a wonderfull strong note of coffee that lingered on the palate for a nice long while. Mouthfeel was creamy in texture and overall feel with the body being medium to full. Both were balanced very well and worked quite well together. Overall an excellent stout. Blending of the flavors was without a doubt perfectly balanced, although it could have been just a tad heavier in body.
