Left Hand Brewing Co: Milk Stout 6.0% alcohol by volume
Buying details: $13.99 for a six pack at Wegmans. Purchased on 2 July 2011
We don't have a Wegmans near us, so while out running errands while back visiting Judi's family we decided to stop there for some lunch and to pick up a few items. One of the best part of Wegmans is their beer section as they stock a ton of microbrews - both local and national/international .... so of course I had to take a wander.
This beer caught my eye as it was a brewery I wasn't familiar with (they are located in Longmont, Colorado) and the package indicated that Draft Magazine rated this the best stout in America. Long time readers of this blog know I am a sucker for a dark beer, so I felt it was my duty to try the beer out.
Full review is below, but as to Draft Magazine's claim I have to say that this beer isn't a patch on Mother's Milk's fanny.
Pours near jet black with a cream head that is fairly thin. Definite caramel notes in the aroma with some
