tap - Black pour with a small light tan head and some lacing. The aroma is of ground coffee and chocolate. The flavor is rich and roasty with coffee and chocolate notes. Mocha comes to mind. Itís medium to full bodied with a roast coffee finish. Good.

Shag (2623) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Pitch black with a moderate beige head. A huge whack of coffee in the nose with some chocolate. The flavor is so much coffee it hurts. Its not a coffee beer flavor this just coffee. Iíve never tasted a beer that is exactly like coffee. After an afternoon of belgians, I need this. Overall brilliant.

ChainGangGuy (4407) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2011
16 ounce pint - $6.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Near black body in appearance capped with a smallish, dusty tan head.

Smell: Roasty aroma, certainly coffee-scented. Itís aromatic though not bold, as in smelling a breakfast blend versus Italian roast. Also snippets of semi-sweet chocolate, burnt toast, and caramel.

Taste: Chocolate leads trailed by the chilled, sugar sweetened coffee wrapping up the roasted malt. Then, some lesser tastes of toast and caramel roll in. Medium-plus sweetness. I never pick up any apparent hop flavors and the bitterness seems more a function of the roasted malts and coffee additive than anything else. Like a pinball trying to pick up a few extra points, the flavor bounces back and forth and around the chocolate and coffee until the gentle finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid if straight-forward porter overneath a pleasing coffee flavor. The thumb points up!

Sampled at Cajun Cafeís 2011 Fall Beer Festival. Pours a usual porter brown with an off-white head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, some roast, and some earth. Flavor is similar with chocolate and coffee throughout and bits of roast and earth. Nice porter.

32 ounce growler brought back by D&J. Big coffee taste upfront. Coffee and chocolate all around. Far more aggressive from other Left Hand beers. Need slightly more body But very nice.
