I liked this - it tasted like sucking the teat of an alcoholic cow. Creamy smooth, beefy aroma, choc + coffee all the way. Drying bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Small tan fizzy head (fully diminishing) into black opaque body. Sweet chocolate aroma with coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is initially is moderately sweet and finishes with a mild bitterness-also duration is long in length. LIght to medium bodied. Dry textured. Average carbonation. Not a bad sweet stout but not for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Last beer sampled at Cellar’s LexLarp in St Paul. History - The brewery was founded by Dick Moore and Eric Wallace in 1994. Originally wanted to be called Indian Peaks Brewing Company. Since Indian Peaks was a brand name used by 5280 Roadhouse Brewery of Littleton, CO, and Rock Bottom brewpub of Boulder, CO and the name was changed to Left Hand in honor of Chief Niwot. Niwot in Arapahoe means “Left Hand” This beer pours an almost opaque black brew with a tan head. Aroma of roasted barley malt, nuts and chocolate. Taste is like smooth bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Clean finish and smooth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Darker brown color with a sugary aroma. The mouthfeel was very watery with an unpleasant taste that reminded me of spoilt milk. Not a fun beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout.
