Review from 2/2010 notes. 2007 vintage bottle, poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark brown, appearing nearly black. One finger brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark and toasted malt, oak, dried fruit. A full, tasty start to the flavor; oak, dark and toasted malts, coffee, toffee. Middle and finish not as smooth or intense as other imperial stouts. Body slightly thin than expected, but a satisfying medium body. An interesting well made imperial stout.

2009 Vintage. Received in mid-2011 as an extra in a trade.
Poured from 22oz bottle into Bordeaux glass.

A: Dark, rich caramel, molasses, powdered hot cocoa mix, chocolate milk, and some grape-like fruitiness.

A: Dark brown (Pours a bit thinner than I'd expected for the style.) 1 finger, light tan head sticks around for much longer than anticipated.

F: Very sweet up front. Carmelized sugar, milk chocolate, and some booze on the end (but it's not hot). Overall, I'm getting caramel more than chocolate in this one. Not what was expected, but a pleasant surprise.

M: Thinner than anticipated. Medium-full body. And this one's well-carbonated. Possibly a bit crisp for the style, but it lent itself to a dense, creamy head.

O: A true-to-style Imperial Stout? Not really. I enjoyed this one enough, though, so I'll give Left Hand some leeway. If you can find this one, I definitely recommend it!
