Beer Of The Month – February

This tasty beer has been making a huge splash all across the US. so we are making Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro February’s beer of the month. If you’ve ever had this beer on nitro at a bar and wanted to have that same experience at home, here’s your chance. First off, make sure you pour this beer into a glass, you are going to miss a lot if you try and drink this from the bottle. When you do pour it out, follow Ken’s advice and pour it with balls. Don’t worry if you are using a proper glass, it shouldn’t overflow. You’ll get about two fingers of very creamy off white coffee colored head that slowly dissipates into a creamy top. This beer is dark so if you hold it up to the light you’re not going to see anything. The aroma of coffee and chocolate drifts from the glass. It’s a welcome and familiar smell that you really can’t wait to taste. The mouthfeel is smooth and light. Don’t expect a heavy beer here. The flavors of chocolate, cocoa powder and milky sweetness rush through followed by that coffee and roasted malts. You’ll be glad you picked up an entire six pack after that first sip because you’re going to want more. To see a craft brewery invest this much time and energy into developing this beer is fantastic. Cheers to Left Hand and have a great February.
