Left Hand Hard Wired Nitro
Left Hand Hard Wired Nitro is a Coffee Porter and is the newest beer in their Nitro line. It comes in at 6% ABV and this bottle has a best by date of 08/10/16.
When poured hard as instructed this creates a nitro cascade and a big and creamy tan head. The beer is dark in color, I’m just going to go ahead and call it black. The aroma is flat out fantastic. Sweet iced coffee with lots of cream, toffee, some chocolate. This reminds me a lot of coffee ice cream on the nose. The flavor can’t quite live up to the aroma, but this is a tasty beer. More nutty on the taste with a more subtle, but well balanced amount of coffee. Add to the flavor a mild roasted maltiness and a touch of dark fruits and you have my experience. The nitro feel is certainly there, but this seems to be a bit too thin of a base beer for me to get the most out of it.
Very enjoyable overall (I could smell this beer for days!), I can’t see any reason why I would not be back for more!
