look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
poured from bottle w/brewed on date clearly marked into a glass, cold:
A- through the glass jet black, but on top you can see it is brown. thin rim of light tan bubbles continues down due to carbonation but no head, laces down.
S- roasted, then some bitterness (hop) and background mocha chocolately. some sweet at the end (malty).
T- Comes on more hoppy bite than i would have expected but it is nice and soon balance by the roasted malts, then chocolate midtongue lingers until roasted wins out. roasted flavors in the aftertaste ending on balanced bitterness w/ alcohol drying. surprisingly less sweet than i though, very good!
M- medium bodied, with full carbonation throughout the glass. usually i don't enjoy so much carbonation in a stout but this does well with it, give its almost creamy feel w/o any head.
D- I could drink a couple of these, not too heavy and alcoholic enough that i could easily split the 6 pack with a friend. Next time i see this on draft i will try 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.
