Awe for the southpaw

April 18th, 2007 by Andy

Being of left-handed disposition, I was naturally drawn to a beer that celebrates the true uniqueness of being a southpaw. Accordingly, I had on occasion to imbibe the Left Hand Brewing Company’s Milk Stout, which I am happy to report, is an outstanding stout worthy of a right or left-handed beer snob.

The Milk Stout pours jet black with an elegant tan lacing that lasts the entire experience and imparts a wonderfully sweet malt nose with slight hints of chocolate. The taste is a pure sweetness only found in well brewed milk stouts; plus, there is a slight hint of chocolate, thus giving it a warm feeling and an ever so smooth finish. There is a subtle bitterness in the finish that is highly appealing to boot. Indeed, this is easily one of the best milk stouts I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking.

Regardless of right or left predilection, the Left Hand Brewing Company’s Milk Stout is a fabulous beer– I’d love this beer even if I was right handed!
