Left Hand Brewing Company Milk Stout

left_hand_brewing_milk_stout

The Milk Stout from Left Hand Brewing Company is interesting in that it isn’t biased toward sweetness, as is typical with milk stouts, but instead it shows off huge amounts of coffee instead.  The scent is that of fresh coffee beans, the middle is a silky smooth, fairly heavy body with the flavor of espresso, with a little milk and sugar in the background.  The finish is sweet, fading back into a last bite of bitterness.  This is a superb, complex, well-balanced beer.

I give it a 4.6 out of 5.
