Left Hand Milk Stout

Left Hand Milk StoutLeft Hand Milk Stout:

Smooooth. Really excellent body and mouthfeel. Silky. Actually, make that smoooove (with a V). Definitely deserves the "milk" prefix. What is that taste at the roof of the mouth and the back of the tongue? Kinda metallic. But I guess this conjures up visions of antique milk jugs ready for sale on the family farm.

Definite flavor of toasted malts present in this lively stout. Stout lovers will truly dig it but I don't recommend introducing someone to stout with this one. Just a little bitter for the unsuspecting taster. Stylish, yes, but we lose just a little accessibility there.

I love stouts and I love bitterness, but newcomers may be a little taken aback by the in-your-face nature of Left Hand Milk Stout. There are definitely more potent stouts out there, but there are more gentle ones as well.
