Fade to Black by Left Hand Brewing had a low brown head that slowly faded to the black of the the beer, and black it is. The aroma is rich and chocolately and sweet but with some roasted coffee notes to balance it out. The flavour is largely dark chocolate and coffee, the latter which lingers on the tongue long after the beer has gone down. The body is medium-full and the carbonation is medium.
Rating: 4.5 / 5 – Excellent beer and one of my most anticipated of the season. The coffee character is excellent, enough to be noticed but not overpowering like coffee can be.
