From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Left Hand Milk Stout
This dark brown brew has an easily identified sweet milk taste
combined with a mild bitterness in a medium-light bodied
mouth feel . In mid-taste chocolate malt and slightly bitter
coffee flavors appear. This is an easy drinking, mellow,
satisfying stout. Recommended.
Dan Hodge's DB15 Porter (home-brew)
Thanks to Dan Hodge for sending in his award winning home
brew for evaluation. It is a well-mannered brew that starts off
with a subtext of hoppy bitterness that makes inroads into a
creamy-soft body. Notes of chocolate and roasted malt
expand the attractive, full flavored character. The background
of light caramel has hints of plum and dried fruit notes in the
aftertaste. This is an engaging, tasteful porter.
Having sampled well over 2,500 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations. However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.
Consider this column an informative resource only.
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
Mackenson Triple Stout
An upfront chocolaty, roasted-malt
dominates first sip. A slight coffee
bitterness lurks in the background,
and remains subtle throughout.
Overall creamy with a finish that is
sweet and malty with hints of coffee.
A tab too sweet for the style but still
