Bottle - thanks shigadeyo! Pours a clear blackish brown with a creamy but fading tan head. Aroma of chocolate with some roasty malt and alcohol behind it. Creamy full body with light carbonation. Lightly sweet taste of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Dry coffee finish. Another great beer from Left Hand.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2006
12oz bottle. Aroma: Strongly-sweet roasted malt with a nice chocolate presence. Coffee, cream, and an earthy woodiness. Alcohol is noticeable, but not hot. Appearance: Dark brown in color with light reddish highlights. Average sized foamy tan head was short lived. Light lacing. Flavor: Dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, anise, smoke/ash, roasted nuts, and some dark fruits. Alcohol is a little too hot. Palate: Full bodied and creamy. Moderate carbonation. Strong alcohol warming in entire mouth and down throat. Overall: A nice beer with some good flavors. Alcohol was just too strong here and took away from my enjoyment.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 Bomber. Pours nearly all black, thin khaki head. Aroma is burnt malt, and a hint of alcohol. A little thinner than most imperial stouts I have had, but not a bad beer.

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Semi translucent black hues. Roasted malts and even a hint of wood. Nice big flavors. Expresso and subtle chocolate. Not as thick as a stout, resembling more of a black ale with stronger flavors. A somewhat overwhelming bitter finish.

HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Via trade wih 1Fast1. Poured deep ruby, almost black, but still clear, average tan head. Deep, rich over-roast malt, coffee beans, some chocolate, quite vinous - lovely, and pretty much no alcohol. Taste - rich, nutty roast malt, espresso, Swiss chocolate, slightly sour red wine, hop bittering and even a real sour cherry feel in the finish - man this is good stuff. Thick, oily mouthfeel, bitter, only slightly acidic, fairly flat, medium linger - just lovely and silky on the tongue. Excellent imperial stout - it really warms the cockles, the alcohol is sneaky-strong. WAY better than the oak-aged version, imho.

Bomber. Courtesy of Secret Santa! Pours pitch black, with 2 fingers of a beige creamy head. Hoppy, chocholate, coffee notes. Tastes very similar to the smell, and quite sweet. can taste the alcohol, but its not a bad thing with this beer. Medium mouthfeel to begin with, but gains a bit, and becomes a nice creamy impy. Very nice, thanks santa!
