Left Hand Oak Aged Imperial Stout

Whoa, this was some good stuff.  Left Hand Oak Aged Imperial Stout is brown-black, opaque, sporting a one-finger fine bubbly head with good retention, this was a treat to look at, let alone taste.  Raisins, cherries, licorice, coffee, chocolate, vanilla…all present in the bouquet, and one didn’t dominate the other.  Carefully crafted, subtle yet complex.  The 10.4% ABV warms the stomach.  This is a cool fall evening brew if ever there was one.  Also will go well with heavy meals featuring flavorful beefs or roasted pork.  A very pleasing brew from the Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, CO.
