Left Hand Brewing Co.
One name, five styles of similar origin. Counting down: 5. Sweet chocolate syrup, a touch of spice and molasses and espresso. 4. Vanilla with strong coffee, even a bit of umami. 3. It starts to get interesting with spicy roasted chipotle, balsamic, and booze. 2. Mesquite smoke dominates. 1. Sherry-like with boozy alcohol notes, some espresso again with a vanilla background.
