Nitro bottle poured in glass. Nice sweet stout, thick creamy head. Notes of carmalized sugar, milk chocolate, and cream. Awesome lasting thick head. Smooth and creamy are the best descriptions. Keep this in rotation.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Very dark. Medium bitterness. Chocolate roast flavor. Sweet. Smells great but not a very strong aroma.

Too thin for my taste and lacking the essential characteristics of a great sour. Not enough sweetness, coffee or chocolate. I hate to feel the spirit is mediocre because so many like it but I can't: anything other than mediocre.

12 oz. bottle, poured HARD. Appearance: finger and a half of great creamy tan head, awesome lacing, black color. Aroma: chocolate, cereal, nuts, coffee, light floral. Palate: full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish. Taste: great rich sweet taste, mild umami, finish is mild bitterness. Overall, LOVE this beer, first time rating it, great texture, good taste and aroma. Not too complex, but very well done.

Nitro tap. Solid black beer with a thick off white head. Beer is so smooth and thick on the palate. Slightly sweet finish, but a very solid beer.

Dense black pour with a thick, lasting head and heavy lacing. Nose and taste are of coffee, malt and chocolate. Opulent mouthfeel with lasting bitter finish. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a thin, frothy tan head - made up of lots of tiny bubbles - that sticks around and has some nice legs to boot. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma which comes through in the flavor, as well. Slightly sweet and great on the palate, obviously (being a nitro and a lactose-based stout). Real nice offering from Left Hand.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: pitch black, can not see thru this beer even when held up to the light, on the edges you can see hues of maroon, pours with a tiny tan head that dissipates quickly
Aroma: coffee, milk, bitterness, kind of faint, dark roast
Taste: coffee, some milk, minimal bitterness
Palate: heavy body, leaves mouth wet, coffee aftertaste
Overall: a very smooth and subtle stout, pretty good, not as assertive as some stouts
