I am glad I grabbed this one. It is a refreshing change of pace from all the big Russian Imperial Stouts and other way over the top stouts. The appearance is a rather simple deep ruby-brown with surprisingly little carbonation (OK I'm a little disappointed). The smell is roasty and coffee but not overwhelmingly so. The taste is a creamy sort of bitter chocolate milk, slight tartness that is good. I like the body also; it is not too thick and heavy.
If this were more available I would definitely throw this into my rotation.
Cheers Left Hand!

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.
