It's neat to have a bottle encourage me to pour the beer quickly into my glass. I'm a busy man, dammit, and putting an extra 5 seconds between and intoxication could result in the loss of a business deal, or pissing off one of my clients, or failing to close a merger at 6.5%. That's not how mynie works. I'm a winner, baby.

I'll give it Left Hand; the beer actually does the downward-floating bubbles thing that widget beers do, and its head is gigantic.

It don't smell all that strong or sweet, even for the style this seems little tame. Light nodes of dark roasted barley. That's it.

Tastes a god sight better. It's very nitro creamy, and that accentuates a sweet beginning of chocolate and maltodextrin, which moves into a bittersour roasted barely and ends on a combination of light, dry hops and lingering milk sugar. Mouthfeel is superb.
