3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle from Lemon Tree. A rich, creamy pour like an oatmeal stout offers a back body with a thick cappuccino colored head. Smell has a bit of sweetened cocoa and licorice. Taste is bitingly spicy, thanks to the rye. Claimed earthy (English?) hops help to emphasize the malt. Tends to the try side like most of Left Hand’s stout formulations.
Pours black with a film of tan head. Aroma is dark and smoky with chocolate espresso notes. Flavor is initially bitter and then silky smooth. There is a bitter bourbon flavor that clings to the palate.

Pours an inky black and makes a thin brown head, with a bit a lacing. Aroma is of roasted barley and cocoa. Tastes of smoky, roasted barley and chocolate.

Tasty stout, with subtle rye contribution. Maybe it was coming in from too much cold, but a tad weak on mouthfeel. Still very good drinkability.Another good addition to this series. Cousin_Larry (895) - - DEC 31, 2015
Aroma is very similar to a stout or porter, with chocolate and coffee notes. Black body with off white head. Flavor is really just coffee and cream - I don’t think it has the "evolution" that is promised. The rye finish is slightly spicy but good. cheap (6089) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Big & black. Dark roasty appealing gentle smell. Stouty at first with perhaps some rye in thar, difficult to feel initially. Its trying to get up to IPA bitterness but just can’t seem to get there. Middle becomes more difficult and ruder with a choco malt background. Nasty Nellie style. Cannot appreciate. Each sip evolves from nice roasty stout to astringent near impy.

Got from beer hawk monthly beer club and the appearance/smell were appealing but I found the ginger too strong for my taste Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2015
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with frothy, lasting beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, dried fruit (figs, dates), coffee, black rye bread and a touch of treacle. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, black rye bread, a touch of burnt sugar and a generous roasty bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, mainly dry. Tasty and well balanced with a velvety, rounded mouthfeel. Nice one.
