Dark coffee brown, almost opaque, with some ruby highlights around the edges and a moderate foamy tan head initially.
The head shrinks to just a ring almost immediately but does manage some lacing all the way.
The aroma is reminiscent of malted milk balls with a hint of coffee.
The taste is roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, milk chocolate, hints of plums and just a touch of citrus. Mildly sweet up front with a dry coffee bite at the finish and a lingering coffee/malt aftertaste.
Medium bodied, smooth and very drinkable. A really nice after dinner/desert brew, but good enough for anytime.

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.
