Bell's - Special Double Cream Stout

Darkhorse - Too Cream Stout

Milk Stout is treated as a "seasonal" beer by some brewers, they may not be available until November.

Mackeson Stout from England is a milk stout

I doubt if you can get duck-rabbit brewery (from NC) on the west coast but they make an excellent example.

One of my favorite styles, very interesting. I would recommend keeping hops traditional english. First milk stout I made the HBS shop I went to was lacking in hop selection. Owner suggested nugget... not a good match for a milk stout.

Can you not get Left Hand there? Very good base, traditional Milk Stout.

Left hand is excellent, but I don't know if their distribution is yet up to WA.

Another vote for Left Hand. If it's not available, I hear Sam Adams does a really good one too.
