This beer from the nitro tap takes about 3 minutes to calm the head down as the beer cascades in the glass. The head literally was as thick as whipped cream. The aroma was good and the taste was good. I would have liked a little more depth in the flavor department but the perfect mouthfeel of this beer cream sickle was a treat. I would purchase again, I very much enjoyed this.

Bottom Line: Creamy brew with the nitro.

The beer comes in a black color with a fluffy off white head. Very much an oatmeal stout look.

The aroma has tons of chocolate, oatmeal, roasty malt, black coffee, along with some piney hops.

The flavor follows with that huge bittersweet chocolate and dark coffee flavor, then it cleans up with a piney, woody hop character without being too bitter. There's a bit of roasty malt too.

The body is as expected with this smaller ABV beer. It has a medium to light body, though the oatmeal gives it a bit of creaminess.

This is an extremely well crafted oatmeal stout and one of the best I've had.
