Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout

Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout

£2.69
4.2
50

The Milk Stout is Beer Hawk's staff-favourite of all the Left Hand beers! It is legendary outside of the confines of our office having received the 2013 gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Sweet or Cream Stout category. Dark and beautiful and smooth and creamy, this full-bodied milk stout bears flavours of roasted malts, milk chocolate, and that ever-present lactose sweetness which gives this beer its name. Its semi-dry finish and a solid bitterness prevent it from getting too heavy and it is, indeed, a very pleasant drink.

Left Hand Brewing has been going from strength to strength for the past 20 years and made the Brewers Association’s Top 50 Craft Brewers list in 2012. Expanding and growing like never before, a new super-fast bottling line has helped the brewery meet demand and get their beers on over here to us!

  1. Did nor live up to expectations Review by Lancastrian Bluenose
    Rating

    After all the good reviews this was disappointing.
    Flat and insipid : perhaps because the best by date was May 2017 ?
    Not especially flavoursome either.

    If you are going to try a milk stout for the first time, this should be the one! You'll be hooked! Sweet and milky, a great mouth feel and after-taste. Excellent. (Posted on 30/03/2017)

    Really good milk stout. Excellent balance of sweetness and bitterness. Next best to Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal. Got to hand it to Beerhawk on this one. (Posted on 24/03/2017)

  4. Left Hand, right beer Review by Jack Swans

    Great example of a milk stout. Really rich flavours with a subtle sweetness. Try Rogue Shakespeare Oatmeal stout if you liked this brew. - Even better. (Posted on 23/03/2017)

  5. Booze milkshake Review by Young_Team

    Great example of this style. Aroma is sweet mocha with a faint smoke. Flavor is a very delicious light coffee, with milk, and dark chocolate. Goes down easy and leaves you wanting more. (Posted on 22/03/2017)

    Amazing.
    Even better than normal milk stout! (Posted on 13/12/2016)

  12. Classic milk stout Review by MH
    Rating

    This is a great representation of a sweet milk stout. There’s enough roasted flavor from the malts to give it a bit of chocolate/cocoa bite, but it’s all dominated by the milk sugar, which leaves it moderately sweet and reasonably full bodied. (Posted on 05/12/2016)

  13. The Nitro version is better Review by MattO75
    Rating

    Bought this and the Nitro version to side by side. Enjoyed them both but preferred the Nitro because of nicer mouth feel due to the smaller bubbles. Would have given this 4 and Nitro 4.5 stars if I could. (Posted on 14/11/2016)

    Got this for my dad for fathers day.

    He said it reminded him of the old milk stouts they had in his day so wasn't overwhelmed by it.

  18. Enjoyed this! Review by Bancini

    Richly thick cream and chocolate flavours in this lovely stout. Sweet without becoming cloying. Better than the nitro version. (Posted on 21/08/2016)

  20. Such a lovely Stout Review by Sam

    Aromas of sweet, roasted malt and coffee are the first things I noticed. Smooth, thick and creamy on the palate with full flavours of milk chocolate, coffee and malty sweetness. Delicious! (Posted on 25/06/2016)

  21. Left Hand Brewery Club Review by The Dark Elixir
    Rating

    I first tried this awesome Stout in Las Vegas on my Honeymoon and it was on tap at a Bar in the Container Park Downtown.
    Its probably the best stout I have ever tasted, balanced milk chocolate, notes of roasted coffee which delivers this smooth sweet taste.
    I love it and I have been buying it regularly ever since!
    In fact I like all the Left Hand Brewery Beers!
    The Sawtooth Nitro is awesome aswell, when are you guys going to get some in stick? (Posted on 31/05/2016)

  24. Fantastic Milk Stout Review by UTB

    Definitely able to tell the difference between this CO2 conditioned and the N2 conditioned Nitro. But the flavour is still the same. Fantastic Milk Stout, leaves you wanting more!! (Posted on 24/04/2016)

  26. The Sgt Milko Of Milk Stouts Review by berkfromtrapdoor
    Rating

    A milk stout, with a twist of sweetness! Not as creamy as others out there, but nice and roasty flavours, and a chocolatey kick to make you quaff this bottle in ten minutes! Try and make it last longer! (Posted on 06/03/2016)

  27. Very Nice Milk Stout Review by Joshie
    Rating

    Thick, tasty, sweet stout. Lovely coffee and chocolate flavours.
    The main thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is that I drank the nitro version alongside it, and it's even better! (Posted on 18/02/2016)

    It's sweet but not too sweet. Very drinkable. (Posted on 08/02/2016)

  29. Milky milky Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    A very nice milk stout. Stays just the right side of too sweet and delivers enough complexity to prevent it being one dimensional. I actually prefer it to the Nitro. (Posted on 28/01/2016)

  30. Sublime Review by SE10

    Everything a milk stout should be, cream, coffee & chocolate all combined into a very moreish drink. I doff my hat to you, the brewer. (Posted on 19/01/2016)

  31. Sunday breakfast beer Review by MeanGreen
    Rating

    I love a milk stout for breakfast. Who doesn\'t?! I save them for special occasions and this milk stout did not disappoint. Medium body with intense notes of coffee and chocolate. I wanted to side by side compare with the Nitro but it was sold out. Squad goals for 2016. (Posted on 16/01/2016)

  34. A fantastic example of a milk stout Review by Adam Hooker
    Rating

    Absolutely terrific example of a milk stout from Left Hand Brewing.

    Fantasticly roasty with coffee flavours, but creamy at the same time. Hint of sweetness, but not too much. A must try.

    I should point out, my 4 stars is because I am not a huge lover of darker beers and have only given one a 5 ever. I would put this in the top 5 stouts and porters I have tasted. (Posted on 12/01/2016)

    Relatively strong, long of bitterness and rich from the roasted malts. Some creamy coffee notes, but overall lacks some depth/complexity. (Posted on 24/07/2015)

  39. great milk stout Review by wreck
    Rating

    Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and coffee. Really rich, creamy mouthfeel without being overly sweet. Coffee, cream, roasted malts, not much bitterness. Not as thick in the mouth as expected which makes for a really drinkable beer. Lovely stuff. (Posted on 09/04/2015)

    Great smooth taste. great balance. must be poured into a glass to allow full enjoyment of the texture and combination of flavours, and not consumed straight from the bottle. (Posted on 05/01/2015)

  48. Like a thinner, boozier, Frijj milkshake. Review by Ay Pee Horne
    Rating

    Tasty, but the Brooklyn Brewery Chocolate Stout tops it.
    Would certainly order again though. Has more of a dairy taste to it than the BB effort. Must get round to trying the nitro version. (Posted on 25/11/2014)

  49. Left Hand Brewing at their best Review by Beer Hawk Tom
    Rating

    Overwhelmingly popular at Beer Hawk's recent Beer Tasting Evening, the Left Hand Milk Stout is Left Hand Brewing at their best. A really milky taste and texture, with strong flavours of coffee and chocolate. Hugely popular at Beer Hawk and definitely one of my favourite stouts that we stock. (Posted on 03/11/2014)
