This beer was quite disappointing. The appearance and pour were fine. However, it tasted quite weak and watery for a stout. It reminded me of stale coffee with an unpleasant aftertaste. It was lacking the flavors and complexity I was expecting. The mouthfeel was poor; very thin.

Overall, I will not drink this beer again.

Hope this was a bad bottle, but doubtful I will ever try it again, so I'll never know.

A = Dark brown with zero head or lacing.

S = Smell of coffee and burnt malt. Not much else

T = Honestly, tasted like a Coke Zero with a drop or two of coffee and a little bit of hop at the end. Is this beer? Where's the milk?

M = Thin and no carbonation. I expected some creamy goodness.

D = I wouldn't want to try

Overall, one of the worst efforts I've come across. DRAINPOUR.

Pours nice... guess they figured out nitro w/out widget.

Same falling cloud stratification as a tap nitro stout when you pour fast, as well as the two fingers of thick foam at the top. Lacing happens, and it happens well.

Rolling the beer after you drink the first inch, or letting some liquid float above the head, it is quite thin and transparent for the style.

Smell straight from fridge to glass is\ sweet... after 15 minutes, still just sweet with maybe a bit of coffee/chocolate if you really try.

Drinkable, doesn't taste like a 6% beer at all. Too sweet, doesn't dissipate like an Irish stout, and too thin.

Mouthfeel is thin.

Tuned for an American (?Mid-western) palate, Left Hand would do well to dry this up and compare it to their favorite Irish counterparts before throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
