Part of a mixed 12 pack. Born in May of this year.
Pours a decently opaque black with a dark tan head. Not much retention, but nice lacing. Creamy coffee aroma whiffs.

Milky smooth, chewy sweetness. Full roasted coffee comes and finishes it off. I didn't see anything overly great about the beer, but the thre that came in the mixer somehow just disappeared quickly. Milk stouts are definitely superior to imperials on hot summer days.

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.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
