Dissapointing appearance for a stout. Poured about a half inch head that reduced to almost nothing. Small spotty traces of lacing saved it from a 2.5. The color is a solid black. Very appealing aroma with alot going on. Hints of mocha, coffee, roasted grains, sweet malts, and hops. I'm happy with the 5.2 ABV. I do not like my stouts to high in alcohol. It could use more body being that it is a bit watery. Has a nice moderate carbonation along with a spicey hop flavor. It is very drinkable and I can see myself finishing the whole six-pack. has a dry bitter lingering coffee-like finish. It is not overly sweet and has just the right amount of sweetness. The complexity of the aroma doesn't match that of the taste though. Overall a great drinkable stout worthy of a try. Thanks to the wife for picking it out.

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.
