Default Milk Stout.

Left Hand Brewing. Milk Stout.

I taste smoke? I taste Coffee? I taste...Black Patent malt?

Does anyone have some actual tasting notes I can see while I drink the last 2 of these. I just can't seem to nail down the flavors.

If I remember right I tasted a lot of chocolate malt in it.

I don't have any tasting notes, but I do remember that it is a great beer. Here is a clone recipe I found on the NB forum. I have not brewed it yet but I remember reading that it tasted very much like LH Milk Stout.

Hope this helps,

My notes are from a winter brew tasting we held last year...All I can make out is "Good beer, taste dark, <something something something> - burps well"

I would imagine that it is more roasted barley, as that recipe suggests.

You guys rock.
Thanks for the recipe....I'll be brewing that soon.

Looking at the recipe I can definitely taste the Chocolate malt, and I'll bet that the Roasted Barley is what I am tasting that I described as "Smoky" on the back and sides of the tongue.

Thanks again.

Don't remember much, but it was smooth and chocolaty.

Just had one a couple nights ago. You guys are right on the chocolate, possibly the smokiness, and definitely as MILKY an aftertaste as you can get. Love that beer.
