So the weekend plans are set, sort of. Saturday evening: Pike Beer Tasting with Hulk Hogan. Sunday morning: Book Signing and Photos with Mary Poppins. Yep! Be jealous!
All right. Here we go. Tonight I'm drinking Left Hand Milk Stout brewed by Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado. I originally reviewed this beer back in April of 2009. If you bother reading it, don't ask about the trip to Punta Cana. The label depicts a cow with black hand marks as the spots. Bottled on 04 08 10. Their website, linked above, is a blogspot Blogger domain despite the fact that they own LeftHandBrewing.com. Now I am no SEO guru, but I'm pretty sure there is some minor consulting work to be won here.
Rich, sweet chocolate aroma with a light coffee whiff in the mix. The flavors, however, are not particularly sweet. There is a definite chocolate prominence but lots of vanilla powers through along with a bit of licorice. Bitter coffee also seeps into the profile with just glimpses of nuts and burnt flavors. Carbonation is medium yet I feel a little aggressive to the point of taking away from the beer's creamy texture. The vanilla was a little over-done, too. Medium body was fine. Check it out!
