Beer of the Week: Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro

Style: Milk Stout

Alcohol: 6 percent by volume

Price: $11 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles at Total Wine

Beer Story: Pour hard. That’s the instruction that comes with Milk Stout Nitro bottles from Colorado’s Left Hand Brewing Co. Bottled with nitrogen gas, the dark-brown brew can withstand a straight-on pour into a glass, as opposed to an angled tilt best employed with other bottled beers. The result will be a lovely cascading head that looks like a properly poured pint of Guinness. Watch Hecht demonstrate a hard pour in this week’s Brew in Miami.

Pairing: Milk Stout is brewed with lactose sugar, which gives it a slightly creamy, sweet edge. It’s easy to pair with chocolate desserts, but the stout’s heavy roast notes make it a prime candidate for grilled meats, too.
