Left Hand Milk Stout

from Boston.com
Going to see Cirque du Soleil's Kooza later this afternoon and then to a party later at a friend's house. Should be a nice day. I hope all of you have a very Happy New Year. Whatever you do, though, don't be a dick and drive drunk! Since I have an iPhone now and am starting to figure it out, you may possibly hear from me later on Twitter. Pay attention! Also, do any of you have New Year's Resolutions you're willing to share?

Lacking time, I decided on a repeat from long ago. Left Hand Milk Stout brewed by Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado. Actually this is a re-repeat, and the last time wasn't so long ago, like four or five months, but forgive me for not remembering it over that Mary Poppins debacle! The label depicts a hand-printed cow on a purple background--quite the upgrade from the old label. Bottled on 07 14 10 and smudged, but not enough to be unreadable--this time.

Nice rich chocolate aroma, a little roasty with vanilla bursts. Flavors showcase the burnt side of malty chocolate much more. Sweet and creamy smooth, but there is definitely a bitter nip from coffee beans. The vanilla shows though as well in the flavor profile. Now, if Starbucks goes through with its plan to sell beer, they should start with this guy. It'd be a #1 seller day one. Personally I'd put one more Splenda in my glass but that's because I like my coffee sweeter. No, not ridiculously Cuban sweet, just a bit more than black. Anyway, this is on the barely-sweet side of neutral, nicely balanced. Slightly flat. Good beer. If you've never had this before, you must try it. You will like it. Happy New Year!

I dug this beer but liked Lancaster Milk Stout better. I think I just dig lower carbonation than the bottle of Left Hand I had.
