Left Hand Brewing Co. Milk Stout (6%)

Why is this little bottle of beer so loved by just about everyone who’s tried it?
Well now, let me tell you.
It’s as soft as silk yet thick and creamy, coating your mouth in velvety loveliness.
The smell is sweet and warm, fruity and chocolatey.
The chocolate is soft praline filled truffle, the fruits are beautifully stewed black cherries backed up by vanilla pod richness, a dash of rum and raisin, and that brittle dryness you get from a Cadbury’s Flake.
You know, that feeling of your mouth becoming sticky in the most delicious way.
Over this you get a punch of alcohol, but it’s not a burn, it’s a brandy heat that pushes the flavours forward and sits in your belly, warming you from the inside out.
At the end there’s a flash of green leafy hops that clears away the richness and freshens you up for your next mouthful.
That’s why everyone loves this beer.
