A: Poured a dark brown/amber - not black. Light can actually pass through this beer. It produced a tan head that faded to a persistent wisp that produced some good lacing.
S: Smoke is the major aroma at first with some chocolate back. Subsequent smells had a creamy sweetness with the anticipated chocolate/coffee aromas of a stout.
T: Normal chocolate/coffee stout flavors balance with the smoky sweet creaminess. The sweetness comes in to balance the bitterness making this very smooth.
M: Smooth, creamy, not bitter, not overly carbonated.
D: This is a well crafted cream stout. Very easy to drink and it falls in to my perception of a stout that you can drink all night long and not get totally drunk. If this beer is an indication of how Left Hand beers are, I look forward to sampling them all.

Good beer. Imagine Guinness or Murphy's with a little sugar added and you have this beer. Personally I'm not a fan sweets. This beer's sweetness is mild but it is too sweet for my liking. If Guinness is black coffee, this is a latte. Great for those who like the texture of nitro beers without the roasted flavor.

A-The pours was definitely fun. Just throwing it out of the glass. It cascades and everything. Nice creamy, nitrogen infused head. Dark body, not much light penetration.
S-Aroma is roasty first and foremost. Milk chocolate. Coffee with cream. A pleasant, textbook stout aroma.
T-The flavor is roasty again but I also get a somewhat noticeable grassy hoppiness in the back end. In between is coffee and milk chocolate or even mocha. A little chalky. Light, dark fruitiness.
M-The body is creamy but the carbonation isn't up to par. It's nearly flat and it really doesn't retain it's carbonation well.
O/D-Bought a single. Glad I didn't go for a full sixer. It was a cool beer to pour, and the flavors were pretty on point however, the carbonation was very flat. Still happy I tried this.
