A High-End Beer Glass That Makes Your Stouts Taste Better

•, By Tim Moynihan
The majority of stout beers are served up in glasses that resemble a contoured version of your average pint glass (Guinness) or a snifter-like goblet (a whole lot of domestic/microbrew stouts). Spiegelau is a 500-year-old German company that has already perfected the art of making flavor-enhancing mugs for IPAs, pilsners, lagers, and wheat beers, not to mention a fleet of wine varietals. The company teamed up with Left Hand Brewing Co. and Rogue Ales — two breweries who know a thing or two about stouts — to build the ultimate stout delivery vessel.

According to my mouth and nose, they have accomplished this goal. Three of my friends — who ranged from hard-core stout connoisseurs to almost-never-beer-drinkers — agreed without hesitation after a taste test. When you drink the same beer out of a pint glass and these specialized stout glasses — Left Hand Milk Stout, in our scenario — the Spiegelau glass made the brew smell better, taste better, maintain its flavor complexity and milky consistency longer, and expanded the lifespan of its head. Plus, it makes a full glass of stout look like a truncated ace of spades, which is a bonus.
