I've been doing some vacation planning for my family. There is probably a trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic sometime in June or July. Does anyone know if they have any other beers there besides Presidente? Otherwise when I come back, my palate might be burned out from that pilsener taste. I might have to become Rum Drinker and write the Daily Rum Review, but that could prove just as painful.
I'm also likely to need a handful of guest writers for that week. I've got a few other smart-ass types that like a good beer in mind. But feel free to "apply" or recommend someone. I am always open to suggestions.
I wanted to branch out today to a new brewery, so I picked out Left Hand Milk Stout brewed by Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado. The bottle has a picture of a cow with black hands on it to make the cow spots, cool. But for some reason, the contours of those hands, at least some of them look like upside-down right hands. Could just be me, or the beer.
The aroma is very light, mostly chocolate. The flavors are more pronounced, first with a big dose of chocolate and roasted malts. No Shit! This is alcoholic Whoppers! And the beer is very sweet. I must say I was expecting a total wuss of a beer but there is definitely an alcoholic component grabbing at me too. Creamy, easily drinkable. The aftertaste disappears quickly, so make sure you have another to crack open quickly.
