look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Rather dark almost black with shades of mahogany. On top is a light beige head only a finger thick.

Aroma: Espresso in the front with dark chocolate in tow. Slight burnt hop notes, dark roasted malts all through it.

Taste: Very sweet and bready a little bit like brown bread and molasses. Chocolate malts, roasted hops, lots of espresso. The mouthfeel is smooth with a light dry finish.

Notes: A very good example of the style and quite drinkable. I will certainly pick this one up again. Cheers.

This isn't my favorite Left Hand beer, but it's a pretty good porter nonetheless. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate flavor of a porter, but not as smoky as some. Probably would go for their Milk Stout if given the choice between the two.

Recommended. Not my favourite porter but certainly one to come back to. Not as flavoursome as the 6.8% ABV might suggest.
