First of all, thanks to ncketchum for the nitro bottle. Interestingly enough, well, at least interesting to me, I reviewed this beer in a regular old bottle last December. I poured this one out aggressively, as was suggested, into an imperial pint glass. This was served slightly chilled...

A) Black as expected. The aggressive pour mentioned above, yielded a nice two finger tan head. Excellent retention, as this slowly settled to a dusting. Good lacing. A very attractive beer right here.

S) Quite similar to my original tasting notes, light roast, fresh coffee, and a little bit of chocolate. A nice aroma...

T) Again, very similar to my notes a year ago. Coffee, chocolte, splah of cream, a little hop bitterness on the backend, which blends well with the chocolate. Nice flavor...

M) Okay, here's where the nitro bottle lost me. The Left Hand Milk Stout in the regular bottle had an exceptional body. Hell, I gave the mouthfeel a 5. It was soft, supple, like velvet smooth. This was none of those things. It felt thin, and a bit too lively.

O) Other than bumping up the appearance score, I see no reason to revisit the nitro bottle option of this brew. I guess you just can't underestimate the importance of a top notch mouthfeel. Glad to recommend this beer, but my personal preference is for a sixer of the regular bottles. Cheers...

Serving type: nitro-bottle
