Left Hand Milk Stout (355ml Bottle)
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800"s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits"sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year "round stout.
Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties - milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
