#130: Left Hand Milk Stout

This one has been relatively popular here for quite a while, with many people saying good things about it. I couldn't resist the hype (or the label) for any longer, so I decided to give it a go.

Left Hand Milk Stout produces a sweet aroma from the the very start, with surprising notes of the sharper, zestier fruits, with hints of chocolate and coffee lurking in the background. It's nice, and it's mellow. Equally understated is the flavour, which opens with smooth milk chocolate and is followed by an almost sugary sweetness. It's not exactly as deep or complex as you might like it to be, but it's nonetheless very satisfying and packs plenty of flavour. Also, it's curiously filling.

As for a recommendation, it's definitely worth a punt. Just know that that punt could go further elsewhere.
