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.

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.
