Now this is a good stout. The milk sugars do seem to mellow the usual stout roastiness, but I found it quite enjoyable to drink. It is a very dark opaque color with a finger or two of tan head.

Cellar temperature seemed ideal as the flavor just kept improving as the beer warmed a bit after coming out of the frig. A bit of sweetness there, but the roasted malt is still the predominate flavor and aroma. Creamy with an excellent mouthfeel as well.

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.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
