look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
A - Aggressive pour yields a huge 4-finger head that is tan and milky in appearance. Almost looks like a milk shake on top. Black in appearance until held up to the light, which gives it a very dark amber hue. Leaves a nice coating of lace as it goes down the glass after a drink.
S - Chocolate and roasted caramel malts dominate with a nice hint of coffee.
T - Malty and chocolate up front. The coffee comes through afterward with a creamy, milky feel and taste to round it off.
M - Feels thicker, not unlike milk or coffee on the tongue. A bit too much carbonation though.
D - Very nice! Easy and smooth like a milk stout should be.
Serving type: bottle

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
