Looks great. Nice nitro cascade. Head settled neatly and holds like a charm. This beer is dark. Very dark.
The aromas are soft, but sneaky. Roasted barley, licorice, blackberry, raisin, caraway, cocoa nibs, and some vinous character.
Spicy flavors of charred grain bitterness, earthy hop concentrate, black licorice, and booze. Definitely a fruity RIS with notes of dried berries and fig. Has a woodiness, which could be hop bitterness. There are softer flavors underneath, like creamed coffee and bourbon vanilla. Really unique. That nitro gas gives great feel. I wish the body wasn't lightened as much. Still close to rich. Leaning toward traditional English approach. Great beer.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

This would appear deep ruby in the pour but it settles to a deep dark cola brown. The head was short lived but had a stiff thick film.
The nose is filled with dark fruits like prune, date and raisin. Some chocolate malt,Graham cracker, marshmallow and char can be found.
The aroma does not reveal just how diverse the flavors are in this. Cold, it starts rather boozy but that disappears with warmth. It has dry and milk chocolate qualities, Graham cracker maltiness, whipped cream, lactose-sweetness and molasses. These flavors change and evolve as the temperature settles. I also tasted dates and prunes along with a roasted coffee finish.
The feel is smooth, very easy to drink but only at a warmer temperature. It has a bit of alcohol heat at any stage.
Left Hand usually makes quality beers that are not earth shattering but quality. This US the first one that really got my attention and got me begging for more.

A-Black with no head
S - hoppy , roasted malt, and chocolate
T- nuts, chocolate, and hard hop aftertaste, and an alcohol warming that hits you hard but fades to a sweet chocolate finish
M- full body and no carbonation
O- the hops was overpowering and then the alcohol was over powering or otherwise it would have had a better grade
