This beer has been massively hyped to me by a craft beer loving friend.
Also, I'm left handed.
Let's see how it stacks up.
Look-It says right on the bottle to "pour violently into a pint glass" so that's just what I did. The result was a cool settling process and a oil slick black beer with a beautiful, lingering foamy head.
Smell-roasty in the nose. Chocolate as well, perhaps?
Taste-That roasty nose translates right to the lips before dissolving in a milky vanilla taste.
Mouthfeel-full bodied. Creamy with a dry, roasted finish.
Overall-MORE than lived up to my expectations. After overindulging in oatmeal and coffee stouts the last few weeks, this milk stout was a welcome change. The best part? At only 6% ABV, a few of these won't knock you on your ass like a lot of stouts. Delicious.
About Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro:
Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your pallet. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.
