APPEARANCE: Only a touch of faint red light can penetrate the deep, dark, black color of this beer. A surprisingly white creamy head rests on top and is about an inch thick. It isn’t going anywhere. It just sits and sits and sits. As is the case with many Left Hand beers, the lacing is excellent and very thick.
SMELL: Roasted malt and coffee lead the nose here with hints of subtle nuttiness. Smoky.
TASTE: Given the heavy doses of coffee and roasted malt in the nose this beer is surprisingly sweet and chocolaty. The smoky, bitter flavors of coffee and roasted malt are certainly present, but not as strong as they would seem to be given the smell. A small taste of caramel also lingers in the background.
MOUTHFEEL: The creamy head would lead one to believe that this beer would have a creamy feel. To a certain extent, it does, but it also has some solid sparkle to it. It is big bodied and rich, but sits on the lighter side. Finishes dry with a slightly toasty mouthcoating.
OVERALL: This is one of Left Hand’s better regular efforts. The sweeter chocolate flavors balance the bitter coffee very well.
