Where to Dig Up More About This Beer

Left Hand Brewing Company
1265 Boston Avenue
Longmont, CO USA
Est. 1994

Postmortem Brew Review
Black color to body with ruby red tones upon pour.
Malty flavor with sweet hits of chocolate, coffee and molasses.
Tall tight tan colored head that lasts forever and leaves superb streaks of lace.
Rich roasted malt and chocolate tastes, moderate carbonation.
Medium to full bodied mouth feel; pleasantly warming aftertaste. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Brownish red upon the pour but inky black in the glass with a tall stiff tan head that tantalizes.  The chocolate/coffee flavors bops your tongue about five to ten seconds after each sip.  Simply delicious.  At a robust 8.5% ABV you too will fade to black as I did on this scorcher of a day.

Such wonderful goodness from the heart of Colorado at the Left Hand Brewing Company.  Wow!  Gonna make sure to get more of this on the next trip to the store.
