Had this at the location at Fountain Square in Cincinnati before the holidays. Review from notes. Received in a pint glass.

5.0 A: Black. Super creamy light brown head with insane retention and lacing.

4.5 S: Despite the nitrogen sucking the life out of this beer (and every beer), it still smells wonderful. Dry, but with lots of sweet chocolate and a heavy roastiness. Seems like there is some lactose or something in here, but I don't think there actually is. Not super complex, but infinitely inviting.

4.0 T: Taste is like the nose, but is less intense.

3.5 M: Nitro gives a good creaminess, but the beer has a lighter body anyway. Good enough I guess.

4.0 D: Probably my favorite RB brew thus far despite my eternal hatred for nitro.

Serving type: nitro-tap

A- Comes out a very dark brown, dark for the style. Head is virtually nonexistant and I saw them pour it, it's not like they skimmed it to give me more beer, there's just very little head to it.
S- Smell is milk chocolate, a little caramel and coffee and there is the slightest smokey aroma.
T- The smokey flavor comes through. It's smokey at first but the milk chocolate flavor still comes through pretty well. Low hop presence. Finish is short but this is where that smokeyness comes through again.
M- Well, plain and simple it's undercarbonated and underweighted. I, unfortunately, have to describe this one as watery. Simply doesn't have the presence for me.
O- More body to it and I think a lot of the issues with it would get hammered out. As is, it's just an underweight porter, a welterweight trying to fight in the light heavyweight division, if you will.

Serving type: on-tap
