Left Hand Brewing Company Nitro Milk Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Left Hand Brewing Company Nitro Milk Stout.
From the Left Hand Brewing Company website: “SUPER SMOOTH WITH SOFT ROASTINESS AND MOCHA FLAVORS. Taking America Back. Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours very dark brown, nearly black with a tiny beige head and soapy lacing.
Aroma: Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Slight brown sugar, molasses and vanilla scents are there as well.
Taste: Dual chocolate flavors – milk and dark with roasted dark malts and hints of coffee, vanilla, brown sugar and milk sweetness.
Overall: Creamy and sweet, Left Hand Brewing Company Nitro Milk Stout is tasty. At 6% ABV I’d highly recommend this balanced Stout.
