Milk Stout [Type 35] 6.0% ABV
For the Magistra's birthday, we received both Left Hand Milk Stout, and the new Milk Stout Nitro! This is an exciting opportunity to compare the two beers head to head. I poured them both as recommended by Left Hand for the Nitro, which is probably inappropriate pouring for the regular Milk Stout, but it is just one way to compare.
As you can see, the Nitro on the right poured beautifully. It has a downward falling head, with small bubbles, so thick you could almost stand a fork up in it. The head on the regular Milk Stout is bigger, with big bubbles that pop on your tongue. The Nitro is less sweet, nuttier, and smoother. The regular is more sweet, but also more acidic, probably due to the CO2. The Nitro is amazingly good! Some nice toasted malts, sweetness from the milk sugars, and oh so creamy.
