Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro ....

Today I am going to try the newly released Milk Stout Nitro from Left Hand Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle.  Their web site lists 6% ABV and 25 IBUs.

Nitro poured with a tight, medium head that was a fairly dark brown.  The color is a blackish brown that no light penetrates in the glass.  Great aromas of coffee and chocolate.  I have already sampled the regular Milk Stout - the Nitro is not as sweet, is more malty and has a heavier mouth feel.  Nitro is more full-bodied.  It is more along the lines of what I think of when I think stout - heavy, malty, chocolate & coffee notes.  There is a slightly sweet, malty aftertaste.  This is one serious beer and a hearty stout.
