A - Pours a nearly opaque reddish black with a nice one finger light brown head. Sticky lacing on the head but it dies down quickly.
S - Chocolate and roasted coffee with plenty of sweet smelling malt. Slightly nutty.
T - Initially quite sweet up front with plenty of smoky coffee flavor and some dark chocolate. Sweet and creamy the whole way with some noticeable earthy hops in the finish. Slightly boozy in the finish is all that I can think to complain about.
M - Super smooth and creamy, lightly carbonated.
D - This one would be a great winter session stout because the alcohol is quite reserved and it is overall just a great tasting well balanced dark beer.
Really liked this one and I will be picking it up again. My first offering from Left Hand as well, I enjoyed it!

My favorite beer out there right now. This stout sets the standard for all other stouts. A fine dark color and aroma of coffee and chocolate milk sets up a smooth and think taste that we all expect from our stouts. The chocolate flavors leave a pleasant aftertaste that keeps you coming back.

A - Coca cola coloured, topped with a lightweight cap of mocha foam.
S - Smoke and coffee hit me first off. Roasted malts play a supporting role. The aroma is nice but not outstanding.
T - Mild yet a little underwhelming. All the classic stout flavours are there, but they're muted.
M - It's definitely super smooth, so credit to Left Hand for figuring out how to put nitro beer in a bottle. Be that as it may, it feels smooth in part due to feeling undercarbonated. Milky yet too thin to be called creamy.
O - I'd try this again on tap, but this beer reiterates to me that it's hard to go back once you've gone Imperial. This might be a nice step on the ladder if you seek to climb upwards from Guinness.
